The third season of Grantchester continues with the fifth episode airing on Sunday 21 May 2017 at 9.00pm.
Having left his Grantchester life behind to do some soul searching, Sidney Chambers finds himself heading toward a Romani travellers’ camp in Lincolnshire. Sidney tells himself he is there to retrieve Mrs Maguire (Tessa Peake-Jones)’s life savings from the man who stole them but it soon becomes apparent, he is just running from his old life and has no idea what he is going to do.
Seduced by the intoxicating, welcoming community, Sidney begins to wonder if he will ever return home. But murder is never far from Sidney’s door and when one of the community is killed, Sidney the ‘outsider’ is suspect number one. Cathy (Kacey Ainsworth) reaches the end of her tether and tells Geordie he has to leave the house.
Devastated, Geordie heads to the vicarage but it surprised to find Sidney gone and a nervous Leonard (Al Weaver) spinning a cover story about Sidney going on a seaside holiday. Geordie immediately knows it is a lie and presses Leonard into telling the truth. When he tracks Sidney to the camp, he finds his friend in a dark and conflicted place – he is not ready to go home but not welcome at the camp. Can solving this murder bring some sense back to Sidney’s own chaotic life?
Also starring Charlie Higson, Lorraine Ashbourne, Alexa Davies, Ewan Mitchell and Adrian Bower
