Grantchester has revealed a sneak peek of new vicar Will Davenport arriving in the village – and he doesn’t exactly receive the warmest of welcomes.
Star Tom Brittney’s character, who is replacing James Norton’s Sidney Chambers, roars into Grantchester on his motorbike in a clip from the episode airing this Friday 25th January.
The footage shows Davenport introduce himself to Mrs Chapman, who is not best pleased to see him.
Norton’s jazz-loving clergyman Chambers made his final appearance on the show in series four episode two, leaving after a whirlwind romance with an American girl called Violet led him to head for the USA.
He has now been replaced by Brittney’s Davenport as DI Geordie Keating’s new crime-solving partner.
Brittney’s previous acting credits include UnREAL, Outlander and Call the Midwife.
Grantchester continues at 9pm on Fridays on ITV
