Fellow tumblr friends, you have endured my rants in the past about beloved tv shows, particularly when things went wrong… so bear with me one more time as I am about to profess my undying love for Grantchester. It doesn’t have an intricate plot, special effects or naked people (although by mid season, you start to think everyone is incredibly sexy and beautiful, including the old lady Mrs. Maguire). These are the main characters (gifs not mine):
This is the protagonist: labrador Dickens. For some ridiculous reason, he loves that Anglican vicar guy riding a bike called Sidney Chambers and gets a bit insane when he’s not around.
When Sidney is not riding a bike, he is usually solving murders with Detective Inspector Geordie Keating, which incidently is also very sexy, even if he doesn’t really see it. Occasionally, in between murders, they do this:
Mrs. Maguire, the housekeeper, is a treasure. She’ll hurt you, but you’ll be happy when she does:
And then there’s curate Leonard Finch. You know that guy that you never expected to love but now you don’t know how to live without? That’s him.
And then there’s
Amanda Kendall. When she’s not pleasing her family and fiancee (they’re all pricks, by the way), she keeps telling Sidney he may kiss her. I’m afraid to say you’ll fall in love with her too.
And aside some murders and heavy drinking, that’s basically it, that’s the show!
