What will happen in Grantchester season 4?
Season four will see James Norton, who plays the charismatic, jazz-loving clergyman, Sidney Chambers, make his final appearance during the series.
Clergyman Will Davenport, played by Tom Brittney, becomes DI Geordie Keating’s new crime-solving partner in 1950s Grantchester.
The synopsis for season four reads: “It’s 1956 and with Amanda (played by Morven Christie) long gone, Sidney’s life now revolves around the church services and the interminable meetings of the Parochial Council and their plans for a village fete.
“He yearns for some excitement, and Geordie has noticed that Sidney’s devil-may-care attitude feels increasingly like a death wish.”
Series writer Daisy Coulam said that the theme of season four is “change”.
“Each series we look for a theme – the scars of the past, punishment and restitution, love versus duty,” she explained.
“This series, change itself was our theme: the evolution of our country and with it our characters.
“Series four was always going to be about change – in part because we had to say a sad good-bye to James Norton.
