Grantchester to head abroad?

'Grantchester' will be shot abroad next year.

Robson Green - who portrays Geordie Keating in the detective drama - has teased he and James Norton, who plays Reverend Sidney Chambers, will be jetting to Italy for series three as they attempt to crack a case overseas.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, he said: "There is talk of going abroad. If series two does the figures, we're off in series three. We'll probably go to Italy. I reckon we'll be based in Tuscany or Lucca. I think it works well for the pair's relationship to take them out of Grantchester."

The hit drama, which is set in a 1950s Cambridgeshire village of Grantchester near Cambridge, only returned to screens two weeks ago for the second series but it's already gripping viewers with its heavily controversial topics.

Tomorrow's (16.03.16) episode will see Sidney's closeted gay pal Leonard Finch (Al Weaver) go on a date with a man.

Robson explained: "Leonard falls in love with a man and there are consequences to that in the 1950s. Today no one bats an eyelid but back then he had to keep it a secret."

'Grantchester' returns to screens tomorrow at 9pm on ITV.
