The new series of Grantchester started filming in the Cambridgeshire village of the same name last autumn and the actors and film crew were all seen to be abiding by strict rules to prevent the spread of coronavirus on set, with a poster of instructions up and masks worn.  

Grantchester’s fourth series saw the departure of lead actor James Norton, who played Reverend Sidney Chambers, with Tom taking over as the village’s new crime-solving vicar. 

James departed in 2019, and Tom’s Reverend Davenport now leads the cast.
