Review

Without James Norton as a steadying hand, Grantchester has been veering about like a drunk driver in recent weeks. The wheels haven’t come off entirely, though, and tonight series four ends with good signs.

First, though, Geordie (Robson Green) needs to deal with a few anger issues, now he knows what that nasty Mr Hobbs at the department store has been trying on with Cathy (Kacey Ainsworth).

Being Geordie, of course, he doesn’t process his emotions, he takes them out on passing reprobates, which tonight means using maximum force to arrest local teddy boys, his pet hate. The trouble is, it looks like one of their number might have taken a shine to Geordie’s daughter…

Meanwhile, with Geordie forbidden to collar gropey Mr Hobbs, Cathy calls in an ally any man would fear: Mrs C (Tessa Peake-Jones). It may be her finest hour.

Summary

Reeling from his family tragedy, Will seeks distraction in Geordie's world where a curious case unfolds concerning the murder of a Teddy Boy at a dance hall. The dead boy's pockets reveal a library card from Esme's school, and even more disturbing - a picture of Esme herself. Geordie makes a beeline for the school and grills his frightened daughter. She pleads ignorance, but Will knows something is up when he spots her hiding a love letter. Away from her life at the vicarage, Mrs Chapman feels lost, while Cathy is left shaken by another encounter at work. Robson Green and Tom Brittney star.
