Hooked on Endeavour

Lately, my wife and I have really gotten into a new TV murder mystery series, Endeavour. Set in 1960s Oxford, England, it follows a young Inspector Morse and his boss Thursday through some pretty awesome mysteries. Not only is the acting good and the sets realistic, but the show’s writing is pretty phenomenal too.

They basically took the idea of the old Inspector Morse series, and gave it a serious revamp with this retro 60s prequel crime thriller. Shaun Evans and Roger Allam are spectacular in this series, and many of the secondary characters are incredibly intriguing as well. If you simply enjoy a well-told mystery, plus some 1960s Britain thrown into the mix, then this is the show for you.

They just came out with the 4th season, which I’m catching up on now. I hope they make a ton more of these because the people who put this series together really know how to make a compelling mystery along with some characters that you can’t help but care about. So check it out, especially you mystery buffs and writers, I promise you’ll enjoy it!
