JN is in the first couple of episodes of Grantchester but then leaves in a not very convincing storyline, and the new guy, who makes a brief appearance in the first episode has now taken over -he's fairly lantern-jawed and easy on the eye, but rumour has it he has family issues, which we'll discover this week in the penultimate episode.

The 4th season started its US broadcast on Sunday (7/14). It was a double header premiere.
I thought this short video with Tom Brittney and Shaun Evans was a fun one:

As "Grantchester" concludes its 4th season broadcast here in the US, the 4th episode featured Nathaniel Parker who played Will Davenport's father. You may remember Mr. Parker for his role as Inspector Thomas Lynley. In this interview, Mr. Parker talks his work on the show and looks back on "Inspector Lynley" series:

It's the last episode tonight, the series has been OK, nice to see some of the supporting characters getting more story, eg Leonard, and Geordie's wife has more of a role this series.
