Grantchester Christmas Special

Bloomsbury Book Club with James Runcie and ITV scriptwriter Daisy Coulam

We go behind the scenes of Grantchester for a very special Bloomsbury Book Club this Christmas. Author James Runcie and scriptwriter Daisy Coulam discuss the dramatisation of the first of ‘The Grantchester Mysteries’ series: Sidney Chambers and the Shadow of Death.
Starring the marvellous James Norton (Sidney Chambers) and Robson Green (Inspector Geordie Keating), murder mystery Grantchester will be shown on ITV this autumn. James Runcie discusses the inspiration behind our favourite cleric sleuth and his roguish friend, while Daisy Coulam reveals the challenges of adapting the enchanting Sidney Chambers stories.
‘As a priest, isn’t everything our business? There’s no part of the human heart which is not our responsibility’ Sidney Chambers
Runcie and Coulam reveal how Sidney Chambers’ investigations into suspect suicides, a scandalous jewellery theft, a shocking art forgery and unexplained deaths went from novel to screen. Come and find out which character was killed off in the process and join us for our Christmas Book Club wine and book signing with the creators of Grantchester. This is the perfect Christmas present for your sleuth-loving friends and family! Tickets are available either with or without the book purchase and you don’t need to be a Bloomsbury Book Club member to come. Grantchester will begin at 9pm on Monday 6th October, on ITV1.
