Tom, who will leave the show after season nine, revealed the news in a statement released in July. “I’ve had the most incredible time playing Will Davenport for the last five years,” he said. “I got to solve crimes with my best friend, and work with the best cast and crew I could ever ask for. I’ll miss it more than anything. But it’s time for the baton to be passed, as it once was to me, and I’m so excited for Rishi to join the Grantchester family.”

Tom will be replaced by Hollyoaks stair Rishi Nair, who is set to play new vicar Alphy Kotteram. Grantchester’s charismatic new arrival has “an instinctive distrust for authority and absolutely no desire to get involved in murder investigations,” according to the PBS website.
