Grantchester series 6 is wasting no time in getting back into action with first look pictures seeing Reverend Will Davenport (Tom Brittney) stepping in to stop a fight on the church grounds.
The ITV crime drama is filming its latest series in Cambridge, and as always we can expect the team to land themselves in trouble.
Tom, who was seen in his white surplice and gold stole as the virtuous rev, was seen jumping in to stop a fight involving guest star Miles Jupp.
Miles, who makes regular appearances on Have I Got News For You and Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, is seen in the scene looking shocked as an angry man yells at him.
But in between takes, the team were on their best behaviour – with the strict Covid guidelines in place including wearing face masks and sticking to social distancing rules.
Making the announcement of the show’s return, Emma Kingsman-Lloyd, executive producer of Kudos productions, said: ‘In these difficult times we are delighted to be able to film another series of our beloved Grantchester.
‘The cast and crew have worked tirelessly to bring the series to the screen and we know the audience are very excited to see what Will, Geordie and the Grantchester family have in store for them.’
Series six will see Tom return alongside Robson Green as DI Geordie Keating, helping solve a new series of crimes around the quaint town.
And this year, they’ll be branching out with Geordie and the gang heading out to a holiday camp – where it takes all of five minutes for trouble to follow them.
In a tease of what’s to come, ITV said: ‘In the first episode of the new series, Geordie, Cathy and their family, Will, Leonard and Mrs C take a much needed holiday together.
‘However, what sets out to be a fun-filled break for everyone at a holiday camp, is interrupted by a tragic death at the resort.
‘Geordie and Will are left with no choice but to help out, as an investigation into the death begins. As events unfold on the trip, there will be serious repercussions for the rest of the series.’
… Well that sounds ominous, doesn’t it?
