REVIEW: Endeavour (S6 E3/4)

Between the shotgun killing of a sweet factory girl and the execution of her boss, it’s all murder and mayhem in the picture-postcard village of Chigton, and it’s going to take more than PC McGarry No 452 to sort it out. While this episode is clearly going to be stuffed with references to children’s stop-motion…

ITV recommissions Endeavour for a sixth series

There’s no doubt about it – ITV’s Endeavour, the Morse prequel, is one of the UK’s most enduring, entertaining and successful crime dramas. Yes, it has the Morse lore to back it up, but it has broken free, establishing characters of its own while still containing those Morse Easter Eggs (and, in this series, any-old…

Review: Endeavour (S4 E5/6), Sunday 4th March, ITV

It’s always claimed that Endeavour Morse is one of the great detectives – we beg to differ. He might be one of the great detective characters, but his detecting sometimes leaves a lot to be desired – usually there’s a string of corpses before he solves the case, with some blinding insight based on a…
