Endeavour - Series One

Endeavour - Series One
[DVD Endeavour]

Endeavour follows the early years of policeman-in-training Endeavour Morse as he learns the ins and outs of police work with Investigator Fred Thursday in 1960s Oxford, England. As a fan of the Inspector Morse series with veteran actor John Thaw, I was curious to see how this series would hold up as a "prequel." The writers do a great job of showing how Morse acquires various personality traits and quirks. I especially enjoyed seeing Morse develop his appreciation for Jaguar automobiles, his trademark vehicle in the Inspector Morse series. Another nice touch is having the real-life daughter of actor John Thaw (the original Morse) as a character in this new series. The writing is solid and the acting superb. I highly recommend this series. -- recommended by Kim J. - Bennett Martin Public Library
