Grantchester: Season One (2015) (TNR)
Release Date: April 7, 2015.
"Brimming with bromance and charm."
The Guardian (UK).
Introducing a new and unexpected crime hero. It's 1953 and Sidney Chambers (James Norton, Happy Valley) is vicar of Grantchester, a village just outside Cambridge, England. Sidney's is a quiet life. He tends to his flock, keeps up with his jazz collection, and does his best to contain his passion for beautiful heiress Amanda Kendall. But when one of his parishioners dies in suspicious circumstances, Sidney quickly finds that people confide things in a parish priest that they would never tell police.
Pushed into the dangerous world of lies, betrayal, and murder, Sidney joins forces with the overworked and weary Detective Inspector Geordie Keating (Robson Green, Wire in the Blood). The cleric and cop bond over their war service, their love of a good pub, and their competitive instincts. It's the start of a beautiful friendship that will take Sidney and Geordie through a series of challenging cases, revealing the dark side of early 1950s England - jealousy, prejudice, class conflict, and plain old passion. Can you still see the best in people when the world of murder asks you to see the worst? -- (C) PBS Films, 2015, UK.
