Filming for series five of the 1950s crime drama has been underway for months.

And things took a thrilling turn on set as actor Tom Brittney donned his leathers and zoomed around on a motorbike as he filmed scenes for Grantchester in Cambridgeshire on Thursday.   

The actor, 28, who plays the ITV show’s Reverend Will Davenport, was also joined on set by actress Tessa Peake-Jones, 62, who has reprised her role as Mrs Sylvia Maguire.

Outlander star Tom channelled his inner biker as he rocked a leather jacket alongside a dog collar as he got into character as vicar Will.

The actor, who has taken over as the lead from James Norton, looked in his element as he zipped through the quiet streets of Cambridgeshire during filming. 

Tom recently admitted that he had never ridden a motorbike before taking on the role and had to have lessons before filming.

At one point, the Call The Midwife hunk sat under an umbrella as he took a break from riding around in the rain.

Meanwhile, Tessa immersed herself in her character as she prepared to film scenes as the vicarage’s pious housekeeper, Sylvia.

The actress donned a pale grey tartan overcoat and a brown hat, while her brunette tresses were curled into a vintage style.

The Only Fools and Horses star had earlier covered herself up as the heavens opened, sporting a plastic hood and a padded black jacket.
