GRANTCH­ESTER

Manchester Evening News - - TODAY’S TV -

LONG be­fore Fleabag started the world’s ob­ses­sion with a hot pri­est, Grantch­ester was play­ing that card. James Nor­ton may have left, but Tom Brit­tney as Rev­erend Will Daven­port proves a wor­thy re­place­ment for the ti­tle.

It’s se­ries five and within min­utes the dash­ing cler­gy­man is mak­ing eyes at a lo­cal journalist El­lie Hard­ing (Lau­ren Carse). This is bound to be the love sto­ry­line of the se­ries.

Mean­while, De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Ge­ordie Keat­ing, played by the nev­er­age­ing Rob­son Green, has big­ger fish to fry. Af­ter a rau­cous night among stu­dents at the end of term, a woman from a pres­ti­gious all-fe­male col­lege is found dead in the river.

Ge­ordie, ably as­sisted by best mate Will, must in­fil­trate the worlds of cam­pus pol­i­tics and univer­sity drink­ing so­ci­eties to suss out the killer.

Mean­while, Cathy’s (Kacey Ainsworth) am­bi­tions are start­ing to test her and Ge­ordie’s re­la­tion­ship. It may be 1957, but he’ll need to get over that one…
