Doctor Who Vs. Grantchester, Series 2

This period drama from ITV Studios was based 
on The Grantchester Mysteries by Cambridge-
born novelist James Runcie. Anglican vicar Sidney Chambers (played here by James Norton) again joined forces with Detective Inspector 'Geordie' Keating (Robson Green) to solve crimes in the Cambridgeshire village of Grantchester in the 
1950s. 
Actors Morven Christie, Tess Peake-Jones, and
Al Weaver all returned as the other series
regulars, Amanda Hopkins, Mrs. Maguire, and
curate Leonard Finch respectively. David Troughton reprised the role of Chief Inspector Benson.
A third series of Grantchester will follow the forthcoming Christmas special. The six-part second season (which debuted in March of this year) began another repeat 
run on ITV Encore last night, and featured eighteen other Doctor Who cast
