amnisias: (violater)
This might be of interest to any flisters who enjoy Lewis and Downton Abby. Those shows had a steamy affair last year, and their love child, which aired in the UK last autumn  is now visiting the USA, as part of PBS Masterpieces. It's call Grantchester and it's first episode airs today.

As you would expect from it's heritage, it includes:
A sleuthing vicar and his northern detective sidekick....
Very pretty Cambridgeshire scenry....
Set in the jazzing, post-war 1950's...
A big dollop of man pain...
English restrained version of bromance...

Grantchester-FT-779x400

As many UK series it's rather short, only 6 episodes, but it's been renewed for a second season.
This will not be for everybody, the crimes are more of a foil than centerstage, it's got a kind of museumy feel at times, and it's gentle rather than suspensful or exciting, very much like Lewis. I enjoyed it for the escapism, the great ensemble cast including the cranky housekeeper and bumbling curate and, because it's me, all the manpaining and bromancing in georgeous locations with ALL THE period props one could ask for.  If that's your thing, check it out.
