Storyline

In Oxford, 1965, Endeavour Morse is a teetotaler and a classical music loving young constable who considers leaving the force after an unhappy affair but stays to join Inspector Thursday's investigation into the disappearance of schoolgirl Mary Tremlett. By deciphering a code based on crosswords in the local paper and Mary's poetry books, Morse deduces that Mary was meeting a lover and leads Thursday to the site of her murder. Following the suicide of Mary's boyfriend, student Miles Percival, Morse meets Miles' tutor, Dr. Stromming, the crossword setter who was seeing Mary but had an alibi for the murder. DS Lott, jealous of Thursday's regard for Morse's sharpness, attempts to incriminate Miles but then the police learn that Mary and other girls were paid to attend orgies by creepy car dealer Teddy Samuels, who has Lott in his pocket, as well as other worthies. As a result, both Thursday (a great mentor who also introduces the young constable to real ale) and Morse are carpeted. Morse... Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

When DS Lott tells Morse that he knows Morse spent three years at Lonsdale (college) and then threw in the towel before his finals, it is only half the story. In "Inspector Morse" (1987) {The Last Enemy (#3.2)}, it is revealed that Morse had to leave Lonsdale College when his grant was stopped and he could not fund himself. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the film, as Morse stops the car at the traffic lights, we see his left hand move from the steering wheel to the gear lever area to the left of the driver's seat, and we hear the distinctive sound of a handbrake ratchet. However in a Mk I Jaguar, the handbrake is located on the floor between the driver's door and the driver's seat - on the driver's right in a right-hand-drive car. See more »

Endavour really is the new Morse
14 May 2013 | by (Dublin,Ireland) – See all my reviews

It might be because Abigail Thaw (playing the role of the journalist Dorothea Frazil) is keeping an eye out there but Endeavour shows deep love and respect for the late John Thaw.

The series is set in 1965 and tells the story of how young DC Endeavour will become Inspector Morse with Shaun Evans in the role of the main character.

What a responsibility for Evans ! But how great the results !!

Shaun Evans resembles John Thaw not only physically (magnetic but sad blue eyes) but emotionally as well. This actor has found a way to bring into every episode the melancholy of his future self but being young he still relies on hope, which makes things even harder if you are a Morse's fan, knowing that he will never really get over his inner loneliness.

All episodes have a great plot thanks to the script of Russell Lewis (of course based on characters created by Colin Dexter) and there is an attentive reconstruction of the '60 but the wisest thing has been to borrow Inspector Morse's soundtrack with the famous "Morse's theme" for the end's credits. Do not worry, even if you are not familiar with the 1987-2000 series, you will be able to enjoy Endeavour because the constable is a smart and intriguing character…. his future more than his past is what makes him fragile.
