Grantchester: Series 8 Premiere (ITV1 Thursday 11 January 2024)

Get ready for the highly anticipated return of Grantchester as it premieres its eighth series on ITV1 and ITVX tonight on ITV1. Produced by Kudos, this beloved show brings back Robson Green as DI Geordie Keating and Tom Brittney as Reverend Will Davenport.

In this new series, Will is experiencing unprecedented happiness. However, his world is soon turned upside down by a terrible accident, plunging him into despair and leading him down a dangerous downward spiral. As a man of faith, Will grapples with how to reconcile his despair with his beliefs in a compassionate God.

While Geordie has found contentment in his relationship with Cathy, both of them face shocking developments at work that threaten their happiness. With the support of Mrs C, Leonard, Jack, and Daniel, Will and Geordie navigate unfamiliar emotional waters, all while murder lurks around the corner.

Grantchester’s eighth season promises exciting storylines, ranging from speedway to spies, shedding light on the lives of invisible women and the challenges that arise from Leonard’s new vocation. Faith, forgiveness, and redemption take center stage as Will and Geordie are tested to their limits.

Returning cast members include Charlotte Ritchie as Bonnie, Tessa Peake-Jones as Mrs C, Al Weaver as Leonard Finch, Kacey Ainsworth as Cathy Keating, Oliver Dimsdale as Daniel Marlowe, and Nick Brimble as Jack Chapman. Special guest actors for this series include Shaun Dingwall, Jeff Rawle, and Jemima Rooper.

Based on the Grantchester Mysteries novels by James Runcie, the series was adapted for television by Daisy Coulam. This season’s writing team includes Richard Cookson, Helen Black, Anita Vettesse, and Richard Cookson and Karla Williams. The episodes are directed by Rob Evans, Al Weaver (making his directing debut), and Martin Smith.

Don’t miss the gripping first episode, where the discovery of a young biker’s body after a charity race uncovers tensions and rivalries within the biking community. DCI Wallace’s questioning of Geordie’s longevity in his role raises eyebrows, while Will and Bonnie adjust to married life and face the challenges of parenting their first child.

Tune in to the series premiere of Grantchester on ITV1 at 9:00pm on Thursday, January 11, 2024, to witness all the twists and turns that await DI Geordie Keating and Reverend Will Davenport in their newest mysteries.
