The Grantchester Mysteries is a series of novels by James Runcie and now a major TV series.
Beginning in 1953, it features the clergyman-detective, Canon Sidney Chambers. Young, tall, more handsome than a clergyman deserves to be, idealistic, upstanding and trustworthy, Sidney can go where the police cannot. Funny and charming, the series chronicles the huge social change that Britain has seen since Elizabeth II came to the throne. It’s Father Brown with attitude, Agatha Christie with Cathedrals, and Barbara Pym with sex.
Join James Runcie as he talks about his latest book in the series, Sidney Chambers and the Forgiveness of Sins.
James Runcie until very recently has been Head of Literature at the Southbank Centre, an award-winning film-maker and the author of seven novels.
