Grantchester filming: Photos show stars of ITV show on set at Cambridgeshire church

Photos taken at a Cambridgeshire park show camera crews on set filming new scenes for ITV drama Grantchester.

Filming for series four is well underway, with some of the stars spotted in front of the camera at Grantchester Parish Church.

Actor Tom Brittney plays a new character, Reverend Will Davenport, who will replace crime-fighting vicar Sidney Chambers, portrayed by James Norton, who previously announced this would be his last series.

Brittney, who is best known for playing Jeremy Foster in the first series of Outlander, had been spotted in July while filming and now the cast have returned to film scenes in the picturesque village this week.

On joining Grantchester, Tom Brittney 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."

Fans were left heartbroken after a dramatic end to series three, during which Sidney Chambers ended his relationship with Amanda Hopkins, played by Morven Christie.

The drama, set in 1953, stars Teresa Peake-Jones, Kacey Ainsworth and Robson Green who plays Detective Geordie Keating.

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

Parish priest Reverend Rachel Rosborough, said: “Its a privilege to have the cast of Grantchester filming at the church.

“It is also great because it encourages more people to visit.”

"Local residents warmly welcome the cast and the cast are happy to take the occasional selfie with them."

“There has been an issue with parking, but they have a dedicated team who are always on top of making sure traffic flows through effectively.”

Series four will be aired in spring 2019.
