Great series. The plots are complex without being convoluted. The acting is first rate. We particularly like Shaun Evans in the lead role. There are 4 shows to watch, so you need to get going on them so you can enjoy them before the week is up.

Excellent story, glad to see how Inspector Morse became Morse. Intrigue. Well acted. Period piece not jarring.

Cleverly written and well acted. The stories are really superior to most detective series. The British have given us another great detective series!

Watched all of the original series with John Thaw and was sad at his passing. I've enjoyed this prequel to The Inspector Morse series because it gives you a lot of insight into why he was the way he was. Glad to have discovered Shaun Evans and that he has made Morse his own, not copying John Thaw.
Season 3 offers many more thrills and look forward to Season 4 in 2017.

Even though I've never seen Inspector Morse, I am enjoying this "prequel" series.
Investigations get more complex as each episode unfolds. I want to know more about young Endeavour Morse and I'm so glad that season 3 is on its way.

"Endeavour", series 2, is good but not because of the character playing Morse but rather his superior Thursday, played by Roger Allam. ( I like Allam better than I do Morse.) All the episodes point out one glaring fact about these murder cases: no one in British or American crime shows ever investigates the man in the street for murder. It's always someone in position of authority or money or history who does the actual crime. The British always have their class structured society and the producers of television shows never tire of going after them. Throw in the almost prerequisite disdain for the Church and you have British television nailed down. Endeavour is quite smart and does not live the kind of life I would want to follow. This young man is not catch for any woman. Morse lives in his own world but not in the world of anyone else. What he does in introduce us to other more interesting people than himself.

I love this series! The younger version of Inspector Endeavour Morse begins his career by solving crimes but also by stepping on some toes.
The murder mysteries are usually interesting and complex. Shaun Evans shines in this role.
I'm ready to find out what happens next as this season leaves you hanging...
Great show. Start with Series 1. Check it out.

Very enjoyable and imaginative
prequel to the Inspector Morse series. Acting continues to be excellent.

Excellent British mystery series.

Do not watch the final episode unless you are prepared to be infuriated by an over the top soap opera cliff hanger at the end. Morse is imprisoned, Thursday severely, possibly fatally wounded, their loved ones not even notified, and a completely sympathetic victim of child sexual abuse shoots herself. And this with no next episode even produced. I didn't watch Dallas and I don't look to the BBC or PBS to recreate that trash. If season 3 comes out (not yet scheduled) and you have it in hand you might try this. But I wouldn't trust the last episode of that one either. The producers have proven they are manipulative soapy jerks. We loved the earlier episodes.

Thursday: Got me thinking ...
less ahead than behind.
I forgot for a minute it's not about me. It's about them that turn to us for help ... in time of need. Weak, defenceless. Old, young ... Especially the young.

Thursday to Morse: When it comes to talking football with you, I might as well show a dog
the three-card trick.


Thursday talking to Morse: The coroner was wrong. 'Died of wounds'. That's what we used to put. Those that didn't die at once. A week. A month. Years, some of 'em. Bullet. Bit of shrapnel. Works its way to the heart ... She died of wounds.

Chief Bright to Morse and Thursday: I appreciate such hateful grubbiness may accord with your 'four legs good' view of the world. But it does not make it so. It does not make it a fact. It does not make it true.

From an early episode:
DC Morse to PC Strange: A man can't serve two masters. Sooner or later, you'll have to choose. Just don't lose your way.

From the final episode: Morse to Strange: I told you one day you'd have to choose. Today's that day

Thrusday: What have they been feeding you out at Witney?
Morse: Mockery and humiliation, mostly.

Barbara: My father was a miner, in the Valleys of South Wales. He'd known poverty. But it hadn't made him bitter.
He used to say to me, "Barbara", when the world shows you its worst, that's when people show you their best."
