The seventh series is set to air on ITV in the new year. 

And, Grantchester reverend Tom Brittney, 30, and his co-star Robson Green, 56, hugged fellow cast members and said emotional goodbyes as they filmed the show’s forthcoming series last week. 

Wrapping on series seven saw heartfelt embraces from cast and crew as they bid a fond farewell to the 1950s crime-fighting drama – for the time being at least.

Tom, who plays Reverend Will Davenport in ITV’s 1950s crime-fighting show, also made his directorial debut for its seventh series.

Veteran actor Robson plays Detective Geordie Keating and was photographed chatting to his co-stars as filming concluded. 

An insider, who did not want to be named, said: ‘We’re all really sad as this is the final season, but we’re not killing off any major characters so there is a chance it could return at some point in the future.’
