The actor, who plays Reverend Will Davenport in the ITV crime drama, couldn’t stop laughing after Robson Green threw the pretend baby in the air and he tried to catch it. The pair looked as though they were having a ball as they larked around with the realistic doll after filming a scene on Grantchester Meadows in Cambridgeshire.
Earlier Tom was seen carrying a real baby as his character became a father for the first time after tying the knot with wife Bonnie, played by Charlotte Ritchie, at the end of the last series. He was spotted cuddling the cute little boy, who was dressed in a blue Babygro and blue knitted cardigan with a bobble hat, as he chatted with Robson, who plays his friend DI Geordie Keating.
The series is adapted from the Grantchester Mysteries novels by James Runcie and was developed for television by Daisy Coulam. Returning cast members this season include Tessa Peake-Jones as Mrs C, Oliver, Dimsdale as Daniel Marlowe and Nick Brimble as Jack Chapman.
The series will range from speedway to spies, exploring the lives of invisible women and the very visible problems caused by Leonard’s new vocation which may, once again, find him battling the law. Special guest actors for this series include Shaun Dingwall (Top Boy. Noughts and Crosses), Jeff Rawle (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) and Jemima Rooper (Gold Digger).
Kudos Executive Producer Emma Kingsman-Lloyd said: “We are delighted to be returning to our beloved Grantchester. It’s a testament to the fantastic creative work of our cast and crew that the audience want us back series after series.”
