Fans of 50s period dramas are certain to be familiar with Grantchester and Call the Midwife, both of which have become hit shows on their respective channels.
Now in its sixth series, detective drama Grantchester follows the trials and tribulations of a Cambridgeshire detective who gets help from the local vicar in his sleuthing.
What you may not have spotted in the ITV drama though, is that one of the main characters has a very familiar face to anyone who’s seen Call the Midwife, appearing in a season three episode of the show.
In the village of Grantchester where the ITV show is set, DI Geordie Keating (Robson Green), enlists the help of Anglican vicar William Davenport to form an unlikely crime solving duo.
The actor who plays Davenport, Tom Brittney, 30, has also had a role in the BBC smash hit Call the Midwife.
