Tv Season Info
Evans is the best thing here by far, his interrogation face a thing of wonder. Could someone do something about the script, though?
This is Endeavour all over. You're watching it lolling on the sofa on a Sunday night, slightly concerned that it's slowly turning your brain into coagulated Ovaltine, when it suddenly throws out a subversive gem.
The series is still (she admits, grudgingly) solidly made, yet we've now got to 1968 and I am beginning to think some of the time and attention so obviously lavished on the nostalgia could have been devoted to the plot.
Now in its fifth series, this superlative murder-mystery drama excels because its characters are deep and real, not anonymous parts in a kit that writers can swap in and out.
Unlike the sometimes needlessly graphic US crime series, with their plethora of psychotic characters, "Endeavour" practices a restraint that PBS viewers will welcome.
