Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Grantchester is a mystery series set in an idyllic English village in the 1950s. A murder takes place and is solved on each episode, and dead, bloody bodies are often shown at length. Manners of death, including a (faked) suicide by gunshot, are discussed graphically. Characters initially presented as "good" turn out to be malevolent. Many scenes take place in pubs where characters drink whiskey and beer and smoke cigarettes frequently. Cursing includes profane phrases such as "son of a bitch!" and "bugger off." Infidelity plays a role in plots; characters are shown taking off their clothes and then thrusting in bed. For teens who like British murder mysteries of the dry variety, Grantchester could be their next binge-watch.
