ENDEAVOR, Series 2: PBS Masterpiece

I've just finished viewing the first two episodes of Endeavor, Series 2, which will be shown in the U.S. on PBS Masterpiece, starting on June 29. There are 4 new episodes that comprise the series. Well done! Shaun Evans does a great job of playing the young Inspector Morse. The series, as you may remember, is set in the 1960s in Oxford. Except for a few references, it has a timeless quality. Not as riveting as The Escape Artist, but certainly solid and enjoyable. Love matching wits with Morse. I've been watching the entire older "Morse" series again  to complement my viewing.

Shaun Evans (The Take, The Last Weekend, Silk), portrays the young cerebral and solitary Detective Constable Morse. He returns in Series 2 with four new mysteries written by Inspector Lewis creator and Inspector Morse writer Russell Lewis.

In Trove (June 29), Nocturne (July 6), Sway (July 13), and Neverland (July 20), Endeavour Morse contends with the aftershocks of his terrifying brush with death as he conducts his dogged, incorruptible pursuit of justice from the shadows of Oxford and the fringes of the police force.

Roger Allum costars as Detective Inspector Fred Thursday, and Abigail Thaw, daughter of Inspector Morse star John Thaw, makes special guest appearances as Dorothea Frazil.

Hurrah! Loved Morse too. May have to rewatch after we finish the Bruno Cramer Maigrets. Isn't there a new Lewis coming soon too?

I hope there will be a season 3. I love this show and am dismayed that each season there are only a month or so worth of shows. Please do more immediately.

I so hope this series returns!
