Make no mistake that Grantchester season 4 episode 4 is still going to be very much about transition. James Norton will be gone for more than an episode at this point, and the series will be (hopefully) getting used to Tom Brittney as Will Davenport. Geordie and many other familiar faces will still be present, and we have to hope that this, by some measure, will help the show to maintain at least some sort of familiar feeling. That is rather essential to ensuring that this show is as consistently great as it has been.
So moving into this upcoming episode, you are going to see some steps taken in an effort to get Will firmly instilled in his new spot as vicar; meanwhile, there is still going to be some other trouble within the town that needs to be taken care of. Will’s going to be learning rather quickly that within the world of Grantchester, there’s a problem around just about every corner and the community will count on him to get some sort of result. It’s a tough task, but certainly one he is capable of pulling off.
Below, CarterMatt has the official Grantchester season 4 episode 4 synopsis below for you with some further news as to what’s coming next:
Will is preparing to be installed as the new vicar of Grantchester and Mrs C is anxious about his relaxed attitude. But that’s just Will’s nature – as he tells the Archdeacon, he’s never been more sure of anything.
Will’s only just through the service and back at the vicarage, entertaining his new parishioners, when Geordie drops by with a request: there’s a case of a religious nature that he needs Will’s help with. Initially reluctant to be drawn in, Will is swayed when he learns that it’s about a a young, uncommunicative boy with literal blood on his hands.
The boy is Adam, and Will realises he’s being quiet because he’s profoundly deaf, but starts communicating with him through sign language. Adam is from a devout family, living out on the Cambridgeshire Fens. Geordie and Will return Adam there, discovering that his mother has very recently died following a fall from a hay loft, and Adam’s father – Ernest Carter – blames his son for it.
The clock is ticking for Will to uncover the truth and help the family heal, but his own troubled past threatens to colour his view of the case – and Geordie realises his new friend has demons of his own.
By the end of this episode, we think that we’ll certainly come to know a lot more about Will — and also realize that in spite of his spot leading the church, he is going to have his fair share of demons that have to be dealt with. We’re hoping that the remainder of the season will provide us with a few different opportunities to watch this character develop — after all, we are just at the halfway point now.
