James Norton and Robson Green return as the local vicar and detective inspector in the Cambridgeshire village of Grantchester as the third series continues with it’s fourth episode.
After a guilt-induced sermon about desire and duty, Sidney questions himself about Amanda (Morven Christie). He wants to resist but soon finds himself in an embrace with her, which is spotted by Leonard (Al Weaver) who berates Sidney for being such a hypocrite.
Meanwhile, Mrs Maguire (Tessa Peak-Jones) is shocked when she is met by a visitor on her morning walk – the face from the past leaves her rattled to the core and she enlists Sidney’s help in dealing with her emotions.
Geordie and Phil (Lorne MacFadyen) head to a large Victorian factory to investigate the death of young employee Josephine Sutton. Her limp body lies below an open hatch high in the wall – dressed for a night out with a bottle of gin nearby. She appears to have fallen but Geordie is immediately suspicious as the scene looks staged. Is someone trying to cover up a murder?
Sidney and Geordie both have to put their personal lives to one side as they look into the factory murder, but the further they dig the more it becomes apparent – secret forces are attempting to derail their investigation. Just who is out to get them?
Grantchester Season 3 Episode 4 airs on Sunday 14 May 2017 at 9.00pm on ITV.
