It's 1953, and Sidney Chambers is vicar of Grantchester, a village just outside Cambridge. Sidney's life is a quiet life - right up until the moment that murder comes his way. Pushed into the dangerous world of lies, betrayal and murder, Sidney quickly finds that his insight into the human condition, and the natural trust that he engenders in people, means that he excels in his new position as 'detective'. Joining Sidney as he journeys into this dark world is the affable but world-weary Detective Inspector Geordie Keating, the naive, but well-meaning curate Leonard Finch, and his austere and constantly disapproving housekeeper Mrs Maguire. But crime isn't the only matter that occupies Sidney. He's smitten with the witty, beautiful, Amanda, but could high society Amanda ever be allowed to marry a lowly country vicar? Can you still see the best in people when the world of murder asks you to see the worst?

Both Tom Austen (Guy) and Morven Christie (Amanda) made guest appearances in Poirot. Austen had a minor role, while Christie's was more substantial. See more »


As Chambers and Geordie arrive in London on the train there is a board showing the calling points. The first three are Cambridge, Shelford and Foxton. There are two lines between Cambridge and London. Shelford and Foxton are the first station out of Cambridge on different lines so a train cannot have called at both of them. See more »

Moving On ...
22 July 2019 | by OperaTarteSee all my reviews

Completed diluted from the series original goal. The absence of its linchpin, Sidney Chambers, has left the series disoriented. As good as all the actors are - it is Sidney Chambers upon which everything revolved. It's his character that gave each story its rhythm. The writers/producers, etal are trying so, so hard to encompass 'everything' they feel is needed to continue audience interest that they have forgotten they already had it. It was lovely for as long as it lasted - I for one will move on. It no longer feels genuine - it has become patronizing - and that will be its death knell.
