Little Archie Reilly runs into the church, claiming that a man tried to abduct him, though Geordie thinks he is lying - until Archie's brother Jacob goes missing - and once more seeks Sidney's help. The boys' cowed mother Charlotte reveals that her strict husband Richard is a serial philanderer, suggesting a revenge motive but Geordie guns for the children's teacher, who sought to protect them from their dysfunctional parents and goes too far in his interrogation before Sidney uncovers the truth. As Geordie reunites with Cathy, there is romance in the air for two Grantchester residents whilst a third is less fortunate. Written by don @ minifie-1

Series 3 is neatly tied up.
28 May 2017 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Series 3 concludes in good style with this offering, which sees Sidney and Geordie look into the disappearance of a schoolboy, from a wealthy but unloving family. Sidney has a painful decision to make, having tendered his resignation the reality of leaving the Church has a big impact on him.

They managed to cram so much into 45 minutes, the disappearance of the young boy, Mrs Maguire's wedding, Sidney's touch decision, Geordie's efforts to reunite with his wife, and Leonard's self realisation about his sexuality.

This could easily have been messy given the amount of content, but they did a fine job, it was emotional without being soppy. I particularly enjoyed the scenes between Sidney and Mrs M, who showed her softer side.

I sincerely hope we get series 4, but this one seemed to tie up all the loose ends. If it does return I think it would be difficult to write Amanda back in, we've had years of her and Sidney toing and froing, I feel like that story is done.

Very good way to end this series 8/10
