“Unable to pin anything on him, Geordie learns Rita got his name from his old army buddy Johnny Richards, who’s been trying to help her escape Gene’s clutches.

“When Gene is discovered murdered the next day, Geordie finds himself implicated in the investigation.

“As Geordie is drawn deeper into Johnny’s life, he’s forced to finally face up to some traumatic events from his own past.

“Meanwhile, Will is on thin ice with the Bishop, who wants to discuss his future in Grantchester. Could both of their jobs be on the line – and can he save himself as well as his best friend?”
