CRIME DOESN’T PRAY

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - THE WEEK’S TOP SHOWS -

YES, it’s an­other idyl­lic English vil­lage where murders are so com­mon­place that one of its res­i­dents has a side-line in am­a­teur sleuthing. In this case, the would-be de­tec­tive is Sid­ney Cham­bers (James Nor­ton, picutred), a re­bel­lious young Angli­can vicar. Sid­ney has be­come DI Ge­ordie Keat­ing’s (Rob­son Green) most trusted side­kick, reg­u­larly putting him­self in harm’s way in his quest to track down each of the town’s many killers. In this in­stance, when US rev­erend Todd vis­its Grantch­ester, it sparks sim­mer­ing racial ten­sions, from the end of his re­la­tion­ship with Amanda, Sid­ney quickly takes a shine to the rev­erend’s daugh­ter, of­fer­ing her a shoul­der to cry on as well as some late-night hanky panky. With lead ac­tor Nor­ton leav­ing Grantch­ester at the end of this fourth series, it’s clear that the writ­ers are al­ready start­ing to in­tro­duce view­ers to the man who will take his man­tle as the town’s crime-fight­ing vicar in sea­son five. That man is Tom Brit­tney as Will Davenport, yet an­other re­li­gious man who is anti-es­tab­lish­ment.
