|James Norton as Sidney Chambers in Grantchester|
Canon Sidney Chambers
I don't know what it is with Mr Chambers (James Norton) when it comes to women (aside: including me). It's a mystery (aside: no, it isn't, if you take a proper look at the pictures above and below) . They all fall for him, while he barely notices them or their interest in him. Canon Sidney Chambers is so distant from the archetype of vicars we've had on TV so far: he is lovely, clever, good-looking. His strength is his compassion, his distinctive sign is that he is a good man in a bad world. He isn't flawless, he has a temper, drinks a lot of whisky, loves jazz and a game of cricket, is haunted by his war memories and tormented by an impossible love. To cut it short, we have a romantic hero wearing a clerical collar, instead of a funny caricature with false teeth and a silly voice. (aside: I have a crush on James Norton's voice and accent).
