Stars of hit TV show Grantchester return to Cambridge with new series vicar spotted among the filming cast

The stars of hit TV show Grantchester have once again been delighting the people of Cambridge as film crews return to the city.

The popular ITV drama is coming back for a fourth season – which will be James Norton's last as charming jazz-loving clergyman Sidney Chambers.

Filming for the series is taking place in Cambridge, Grantchester and slightly further afield in St Albans.

People in Cambridge have been sharing pictures of the cast hard at work in the city on social media, and those near Senate House Passage caught a glimpse of the stars earlier this week.

Robson Green appeared to be filmed making an arrest in the passage while James Norton looked on.

James Norton was also spotted punting along the River Cam on Thursday – adding to the long list of celebrity punting stars including David Beckham, Stephen Fry, Amanda Holden, William Shatner and Sigourney Weaver.

TV star Tom Brittney, who will replace James Norton as the vicar with new character Reverend Will Davenport, was also spotted with a beaming smile as he took part in filming in the city.

Tom Brittney also appeared in Outlander, Call the Midwife and Film Stars Dont Die in Liverpool.

On joining Grantchester, he said: "I am beyond excited. From the moment I heard about the role of Will Davenport, it was something I wanted more than anything.

“Its a real honour to be joining such a wonderful series, with such a loyal fan base."

James Norton said as excited as he was to be filming a new series of Grantchester, it was also heartbreaking to be saying goodbye to Sidney Chambers.

He added: “Ive loved this experience, and particularly working with such an extraordinary cast and crew. All the best to the fantastic Tom Brittney in his role as the new vicar.

“He is a wonderful addition to the Grantchester family."

The television series is based on The Grantchester Mysteries, a collection of short stories written by former Trinity Hall student James Runcie.

Along with Robson Green, who plays Detective Geordie Keating, returning members of Grantchesters ensemble cast for series four include Al Weaver, Tessa Peake-Jones and Kacey Ainsworth.
