The six-part series will also star Morven Christie, Tessa Peake-Jones, Kacey Ainsworth, Al Weaver and Pheline Roggan.

Grantchester, produced by Lovely Day, is based on the novel Sidney Chambers and the Shadow of Death, by James Runcie.

Set in the titular hamlet, the story follows the life of Sidney Chambers, a charismatic clergyman who turns investigative vicar when one of his parishioners dies in suspicious circumstances.

It has been written by Daisy Coulam and is produced by Emma Kingsman-Lloyd. The executive producer is Diederick Santer.

Filming begins this month and will continue until June.
