ENDEAVOUR: Masterpiece Mystery, July 1

Sunday, July 1, 2012, 9 PM on PBS

Before Inspector Morse, there was the rookie Constable Morse, fed up with police work and ready to nip his career in the bud by handing in his resignation. That is, until a murder turned up that only he could solve. Shaun Evans stars as the young Endeavour Morse, before his signature red Jaguar but with his deductive powers already running in high gear, on Endeavour.

Prequel will be set in 1965 and takes place in Oxford, the setting for "Morse" and spinoff series "Inspector Lewis," which will see four new episodes on "Masterpiece Mystery!" Russell Lewis, creator of the spinoff, wrote"Endeavour.

Roger Allam stars as DI Fred Thursday and Abigail Thaw (Inspector Morse star John Thaw's daughter) makes a special cameo appearance in Endeavour.

This is exciting. I hope the stories match the real Morse-but they are hard to beat. Also good to hear that there will be new Lewis's

Wonderful news. Loved the Morse series and the Inspector Lewis series almost as much. Bravo to the BBC and Masterpiece Mystery. :-)

I can hardly wait. The Lewis spinoff is excellent so I was pleased to see that this one is written by the same guy. Now I can settle in for some good mystery evenings, although I have been enjoying the Becks and Maigrets on KCSM.
