Endeavour Series Three goes into Production

ITV have revealed some of the details of Endeavour Series Three which went into production this week.

Once again the series will comprise of four two-hour films with Shaun Evans reprising his role as the young Inspector Morse. Russell Lewis will once again write the drama whilst original Morse scribe Colin Dexter will be on board as his advisor.

Series three of Endeavour takes the action into 1967 with the first of the stories featuring the murder of bus conductress Jeannie Hearne on the night she visited the local fairground. With the backdrop of the fun fair the investigation begins…

Writer Russell Lewis says of the first episode, “1967 is for Endeavour ‘perhaps the end of the beginning.’ Change is abroad in the world and not even the city of dreaming spires can escape its influence. Change for Endeavour, and those most dear to him – personally and professionally. Departures and arrivals. Entrances and exits. Our next quartet of mysteries will take the audience on a psychedelic Summer of Love fairground ride, filled with twists and turns, shrieks and scares. In particular, one encounter at a certain stately home will echo down the years, and have consequences that not even Endeavour Morse could have foreseen. The only constant is death… And Green Shield Stamps,”

Returning alongside Evans are Jack Laskey as DS Peter Jakes, Sean Rigby as PC Jim Strange, James Bradshaw as Dr Max DeBryn, Abigail Thaw as journalist Dorothea Frazil and Anton Lesser as Chief Superintendent Ronald Bright.

Unknown is the fate of Roger Allam's DI Fred Thursday whose life was hanging in the balance after being shot in the chest during series two's emotional finale. It also remains to be seen what happened to Morse after he was framed for the murder of Chief Constable Rupert Standish.

The answers to these questions will hopefully be answered when Endeavour returns later in the year.
