“With a new decade just around the corner, the question of what the future holds is on everyone’s minds, not least Will’s, but before the ’50s roll over into the swinging sixties there are some crimes to solve and some life-changing decisions to be made that might change life in Grantchester forever.”
Discussing the secret to Grantchester’s popularity, Robson Green explained: “It deals with serious subject matter in a very charming and likeable way.”
He added: “It’s the writing and the viewers care about each character and I feel everyone involved in Grantchester, in front of and behind the camera, is at the top of their game.”
