Episode 7: Grantchester

Summary

When Leonard's prison cell-mate Joe Davies is accused of murdering another inmate, Leonard asks Will and Geordie for their help, convinced that Joe is innocent. However, the murder bears striking similarities to the crime for which Joe was incarcerated - the drowning of his own mother

Review

Despite Leonard now languishing in jail, the writers are ensuring that he still gets his fair share of screen time, with this week’s murder taking place behind bars.
 
The chief suspect is Leonard’s own cellmate, a bullying top dog by the name of Joe (guest star Bobby Lockwood), but the former verger doesn’t believe he’s guilty and so manages to get Will and Geordie to investigate. Before the culprit is revealed, there are a fair few prison-drama clichés to tick off, from the sadistic screw to the hard-nosed governor. But the toll it takes on Geordie packs an emotional punch, with the DI seen turning to drink as he dwells on his experiences as a PoW in Burma.
