More on the return of Endeavour from ITV

by | Apr 4, 2013 | All, Previews

Shaun Evans (The Take, The Last Weekend, Silk), who won over critics and viewers alike with his portrayal of young Morse, has returned to film four new films written by Lewis creator and Morse writer Russell Lewis.                                                

Acclaimed stage and screen actor Roger Allam (The Jury, Parade’s End, The Thick of It) returns as Endeavour’s senior partner, Detective Inspector Fred Thursday. Stage actor Sean Rigby takes on the role of a young PC Strange – the character who appeared in the original Morse series, played by James Grout.                                                                  

James Bradshaw will return as Dr Max Debryn and John Thaw’s daughter Abigail will make further guest appearances as Dorothea Frazil. Supporting cast include Anton Lesser (The Hour, Garrow’s Law, The Scapegoat) as Chief Supt Reginald Bright and Jack Laskey (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows) as DS Peter Jakes.                                                                    

Consolidated ratings for the first Endeavour film – which transmitted in January to mark the 25th anniversary of the very first episode of Morse – were 8.2m with an impressive audience share of 30%. This makes it the most popular single film on any channel in the last five years.    

The new series is produced by Dan McCulloch (Endeavour, 10 Minute Tales) and executive produced by Mammoth Screen’s Joint Managing Directors, Michele Buck and Damien Timmer, writer Russell Lewis and Rebecca Eaton for WGBH.    

                                                      Starts Sunday 14 April at 8pm on ITV
