Endeavour: Series 5 Photos
Tv Season Info
You have to ask, if there hadn't been Inspector Morse, would Endeavour be worth the endeavour, and the answer is probably no. But Endeavour, as a foreshadowing of things to come, remains just about palatable.
Evans is the best thing here by far, his interrogation face a thing of wonder. Could someone do something about the script, though?
A more pressing concern for long-time viewers will be the state of Morse's legendarily troubled love life.
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.
