Endeavour: Series 2 Photos
Tv Season Info
It's rare that a TV programme actually makes me doubt my own sanity, but the bundle of demented revelations that crowned the return of Endeavour had me convinced that I must either be losing it or have fallen asleep somewhere in the previous 90 minutes.
Like all prequels, Endeavour faces a problem: how to satisfy Morse aficionados without alienating new viewers.
Fascinating are Argento-esque touches that emphasize menacing black-gloved killers and macabre weaponry, but Series 2 doesn't have the energy to follow through on this promising development, content to tease and back away.
The new series features plenty of opera and wordplay for aficionados.
It is, nevertheless, very charming, in an understated-English kind of way. It also remains in keeping with the spirit of Morse, and is certainly superior to its sequel.
