While I wait (with more than a modicum of trepidation) for the March 6 final episode of the British historical drama Downton Abbey, I see that Season 2 of Grantchester—the 1950s mystery series based on James Runcie’s still-growing collection of books—is set to debut on Sunday, March 27. According to the schedule for PBS-TV’s Masterpiece, six episodes of Grantchester will be aired through May 1. I’ve found this show, which stars James Norton as the Reverend Sidney Chambers and Robson Green as Detective Inspector Geordie Keating, to be quite entertaining, so I look forward to revisiting it throughout the spring. It won’t make up for the loss of Downton Abbey, but as the old song goes, “you can’t always get what you want.”
