Masterpiece Mystery! Endeavor II: Nocturne
Sunday, July 6 at 9 p.m.
Before Inspector Morse, there was the rookie Constable Morse, fed up with police work and ready to nip his career in the bud by handing in his resignation. Evoking the conflict between tradition and the new youth culture of the ’60s, Endeavour answers a lot of questions about the young Morse, who happens to prefer Puccini to the Beatles. Just how did this working-class, opera-loving, crossword-addicted, Oxford University dropout land on the Oxford police, develop a thirst for fine ale, fall into a problematic relationship with women, and manage to slip behind the wheel of a classic car as part of his low-paying job? The adventures of young Morse continue in Season 2 of Masterpiece Mystery! Endeavor.
