Speaking about the new line-up, Robson Green said: “We continue to get great guests on Grantchester and that’s testament to the writing on the show because people want to be part of this very charming and likeable show that has an undercurrent of something very poignant and layered to it and our peers really recognise that.”
Speaking about working with Charlotte he added: “To have actors of the calibre of Charlotte Ritchie in the show is a real acknowledgement of the quality of Grantchester.
“Charlotte is a big hitter, she’s A-list and she’s a triple threat because she has that lovely ability not only to play serious issues but she can bring levity to them as well, in a very similar way that Al Weaver does.
“No matter how serious a situation Charlotte can bring humour where, on paper, there is none. She brings a really likeable aspect to the arc that Tom is pursuing in terms of true love.”
Meanwhile Tessa Peake-Jones will reprise her role as Mrs. Chapman, while Al Weaver will return as Leonard Finch, Kacey Ainsworth as Cathy Keating, Oliver Dimsdale as Daniel Marlowe, Nick Brimble as Jack Chapman, Melissa Johns as Miss Scott and Bradley Hall as Larry Peters.
