It’s 1957, the year that Prime Minister Harold MacMillan told the British people that they’d “never had it so good”, and for many in Grantchester, that’s just how it feels!
Will Davenport has settled into his role as the vicar of Grantchester, preaching to a packed church. His best friend, Detective Inspector Geordie Keating, has come to accept his wife Cathy’s commitment to her job – just about. Mrs C happily juggles her roles as the vicarage housekeeper and being a well-to-do married woman, and after a trip to Marrakech, even Leonard has managed to carve out some happiness with Daniel.
It’s as if the world of Grantchester has returned to an idyllic state - a metaphorical Garden of Eden. And Will believes that everyone can get close to their own Eden through good works and a proactive attitude. But - as Geordie knows - trouble always finds a way: every Eden has its snakes…
