Grantchester

grantchester-posterI have fallen in love with an Anglican priest named Sidney Chambers, played by the captivating red-haired James Norton. Sadly, the second season has ended, but a third is promised, and you can watch it on DVD. Chambers, the vicar of a church outside Cambridge, England, drinks whisky and listens to jazz to dispel his WWII memories and to try to get over a broken heart. He also solves crimes, together with a police detective, played by the almost equally captivating Robson Green. He ministers to his flock, deals with his crusty housekeeper, and gets involved with various women. The series is set in the seemingly more innocent 1950s, but the complex human interactions and the central love story are universal.
