A more than worthy, and almost as good, prequel series to Inspector Morse
Not just a more than worthy prequel series to one of my favourite detective dramas of all time and goes very well with it, but it is a great series on its own as well, one that got off to a good start, though some of the pilot and the first episode had a still-finding-its-feet-feel (understandably), and just keeps getting stronger. It maintains everything that makes Inspector Morse so good, while also containing enough to make it its own.
Endeavour looks great, the series throughout is exquisitely photographed and there is something very nostalgic and charming about the atmospherically evoked 1960s period detail. It was also a genius move to keep Barrington Pheloung on board, with his hauntingly beautiful scoring and immortal Inspector Morse theme, while the classical music and operatic excerpts are delightful to hear and fit perfectly (a notable example would be in the Fugue episode, the music having a beautiful and frightfully ominous effect).
The series is also every bit as intelligently written as Inspector Morse, it’s every bit as entertaining and also every bit as tense. Not all the story lines are very original, but they are always incredibly gripping with the mysteries not being too complicated or the identities being too improbable or obvious, Morse and Thursday’s father/son relationship has a lot of warmth, is so well written within the stories and is a large part of the series’ appeal and there is some good suspense (chilling in fact in the case of Fugue). Pacing is restrained, but that allows the atmosphere to come through, and pretty much all the same it excels in that aspect. The characters are interesting, and are evolving more and more with every episode, Morse’s familiar characteristics are becoming more obvious as the writing develops and Morse and Thursday’s relationship more entertaining and heartfelt.
Shaun Evans does some powerful, charismatic work as younger Morse, and is getting more and more confident with every episode, showing enough loyalty to John Thaw’s iconic Morse while making the character his own too. Roger Allam is also superb, his rapport with Evans always compels and entertains but Thursday is quite a sympathetic character, as well as loyal and firm, and Allam does a lot special with a role that could have been less interesting possibly in lesser hands. All the acting is very good, as is the controlled direction, but it’s the performances of Evans and Allam that will always be remembered most vividly.
All in all, a more than worthy (if not quite as good, only because I love Inspector Morse with a passion) prequel series and also a great series on its own that keeps getting stronger. 9/10 Bethany Cox
Endeavor is good but shows no signs of becoming Morse
There are some excellent mysteries in the series. But what I can’t get use to is that Shaun Evens still looks and especially sounds nothing if the John Thaw’s Morse character we came to know and love. For a start his build is all wrong sure Thaw’s character was a little overweight but mainly he was just that medium build and Shaun is skinny, his face is not his and sure even thinking 15 years (as it is from now) ahead it still is hard for this character to form into the later one. And above all the voice, voices hardly ever change from younger to old in real life. Look I know casting isn’t supposed to find an exact replica, but some more work from Evens on Morse’s mannerisms wouldn’t have gone astray. Despite what some others have said on here, I still at season 6, cannot hear or see the exasperation in Morse’s character in Endeavor that can lead me to believe how he turned into the personality Morse from the 80’s or even why he remained single and other aspects of his life. So despite some good mysteries I find it at times quite distracting to watch this younger Morse and the stories he is dealing with. The storylines about Thursday are actually more interesting than Morse’s though is als part of why this series is sometimes too dark to enjoy as a true murder mystery.
