Shaun Evans returns for a fourth season as the young Endeavour Morse, before his signature red Jaguar but with his deductive powers already running in high gear.
It’s the summer of 1967, and the effects of the Cold War and sixties counterculture are being felt in Oxford. It has barely been two weeks since the events depicted in the season three finale, and we find Oxford’s finest picking up the pieces of their personal and professional lives. Endeavour waits to hear the result of his Sergeant’s Exam, and self-medicates to numb his heartache over Joan, but whisky and Tännhauser will only get a man so far. Meanwhile, Thursday and Win deal with their own sense of grief. Their home is empty, Sam gone to the army and Joan…who knows where?
In the season 4 premiere, “Game,” follow Endeavour in the nightmarish hunt for a serial killer; he must race against time to find the connection between a chess-playing “thinking” machine and a baffling drowning. In the following Sunday’s second episode, “Canticle,” shadow Endeavour as he's dragged into a bloody war of social attitudes.
