Grantchester has yet another young, hunky vicar who enjoys solving crime

What a happy coincidence for Geordie.

He’s “swarthy.”

I thought the phrase was a "dishy vicar"... wasn't there one on Keeping Up Appearances and years later on Call the Midwife?

The new buddy for Geordie is, indeed, attractive.

I have a certain tolerance for replacing the lead in a successful series with a nearly identical character. But twice? Couldn’t they try something a little different the third time? I mean more different than making him “swarthy.”

Three successive hunky, single, straight, crime-solving vicars with sporty vehicles one small village seems . . . unlikely.

At least they made a joke about Geordie having a “thing for vicars.”

by Anonymousreply 8July 4, 2024 2:26 PM

I guess by establishing that Mrs. C misses being a housekeeper (really?), but could not get along with the Keatings, they are setting up her return to the vicarage. In other words, they don’t know what to do with the character but want to keep her around.

An Indian vicar? Give me a fucking break.

Maybe they could've switched it up with a FEMALE vicar.

Poor Leonard is going to need a bigger drool bucket - I saw him giving the new 'Dishy Vicar' the once over and he looked as though he was going to faint!

Poor Leonard is the homeliest gay who ever gayed.

When did the Grantchester vicarage get a cutting of the Bridgerton ever-blooming wisteria?

by Anonymousreply 24July 4, 2024 9:08 PM

Does the new Sad Vicar not own a razor? He can keep the beard -- although surely that's not period, but then very little about this show is anymoe -- just shave the neck.

Poor Dickens, aNOTHER new master, Christ...

Beautiful Indian man. Love his chest hair and brown skin.

Why would they leave Dickens? A family with kids leaves the pet dog? No.

by Anonymousreply 27July 4, 2024 9:15 PM

Apparently the dog goes with the house.

by Anonymousreply 28July 4, 2024 9:17 PM

Well, they did! I was surprised, too. I guess he belongs to the vicarage. Just needs a white collar.

And a better vicar.

They really need to stop being so racist and replace the dog with a cow.

by Anonymousreply 31July 4, 2024 9:23 PM

I had to laugh — it only took about 10 minutes for the new Sad Vicar to get his shirt off (and the camera practically licked him while he took it off). Very shortly thereafter: an establishing shot of the Blue Ball Pub. C’mon, show… That said, he’s quite handsome and looks good shirtless. Still, that’s probably the only time he will be as one shirtless vicar scene per season seems to be the going rate.

I wonder what’s Sad about this vicar. Sidney had PTSD, and Will had RBDI (Rich Boy Daddy Issues).

R22, They seem to be setting something up between Leonard and that new do-gooder who’s hanging around his halfway house. I’m wondering if he’ll come between Leonard and his boyfriend. If so, Leonard’s batting 1000 getting two guys who are way better looking than he is. But I keep thinking New Guy isn’t what he seems.

R24, yeah do they have to replace the fake wisteria after a rain? After a couple of days of sun bleach the color out? Do they have to dust/vacuum them daily?

R25, totally agree, why not shave his neck? Is that supposed to make him badass?

I kind of love how they’ve embraced the ridiculous anachronisms — this whole series clearly started as a “hot” alternative to Father Brown. So why not go whole hog?

Because of the New Vicar(OMG I love Indian men who look like that), I already watched the entire season of Grantchester on PBS Passport.

LOVE the series, LOVE that car& LOVE Dickens.

Maybe the new vicar’s secret is that he’s gay. The two gay-related mysteries he’s been involved in may be foreshadowing.

R10 and R17, what is wrong with you? Nothing woke about this.

Do you realize there are over twenty million Catholics in India?

I covet Sad Vicar’s red Triumph and wish he’d take me for a ride, if you know what I mean and I think you do. And he doesn’t need a housekeeper, Mrs. C., he needs a boyfriend who won’t make him deviled kidneys (yeesh, that looked vile, and I don’t dislike kidneys).

Also: Daniel’s hair looks completely different this season. Darker and… more of it in the front. Mrs. C’s and Kathy’s wigs wouldn’t move in a typhoon.

They could really stir things up if Dishy Desi Vicar hits on Esme.

Pretty sure that a wig he's sorting. Has it already been mentioned? I haven't read the entire thread.

It's impossible these days to tell what year this is taking place. Horrible costumes and wigs/hair.

sporting, not sorting

I think it’s supposed to be up to 1961 chronologically.

I watched the whole season on the PBS premium streamer, it was a cut or two above the last couple of seasons and Rishi Nair is quite good, seems more engaged and less bland than Tom Brittney, whose unerring decency was getting pretty boring.

by Anonymousreply 48July 16, 2024 3:13 AM

They had oral contraceptives in the most recent episode. They started becoming available from the NHS in the UK in late 1961. I'd say we're a bit past that.

r46 Not a wig, young Indian men famously tend to have incredible hair. It's a shame it starts falling out rapidly in their middle age, though.
