Opinion

See how Inspector Morse started his career as an Oxford police constable in the 1960s.

Oxford, England, in the 1960s. Acting is superb. - Kevin

In 1965, the young Detective Constable Endeavour Morse is recruited into the hunt for a missing schoolgirl and finds himself in the midst of a murder investigation.

Haven't seen the original Morse series in years, and don't remember much about it. This one (a prequel, with a new actor portraying the young, awkward, unsure Morse) definitely stands well on its own. // Well written and acted. Each episode involves multiple crimes (possibly interconnected) with multiple suspects, and it's a challenge to try to figure out -- along with Morse -- who the culprit is. The locales (Oxford in the 60s), photography, acting, and music are excellent. // Looking forward to seeing Series 2.

IMHO, the best season of Endeavour out of the 3 I have seen (Pilot+, 1, 2). Great acting and some very good stories, told exceptionally well. I found series 2 to be a let down after seeing series 1. I'm not saying that series 2 was bad, but I thought series 1 was very good.

lovely, really lovely. Understated acting, terrific setting (1960's oxford). Especially like what isn't said- no over-explaining, no talking down to the viewer... Morse and Thursday are true "Englishmen". Charming.

We have Colin Dexter to thank for; first with Inspector Morse, then Inspector Lewis (with Hathaway) and now Endeavor (with DI Thursday). Great season one as young Morse under DI Thursday was still all corners and sullen most of the time. Look forward to season 2.

Lovely series. Beautifully photographed and acted with excellent writing and a beautiful score. Well developed characters and interesting relationships. Of the three series, Lewis is my favourite, but Endeavour is definitely a welcome addition.

Another good series from the Masterpiece Theatre/ITV productions. This series is set in Oxford in the mid-1960s. Excellent character actors and good scripts which are a bit uneven in quality, but still all very good. The interweaving of Morse's love of opera is an interesting accompanying theme. I'm looking forward to series 2.

An avid fan of ' Morse ' I was thrilled to discover that 'Endeavour' is as enthralling. Very well made. Awaiting with bated breath for series 2.

Unfortunately Disc 3 is damaged. At the very end of the story the action pauses and repauses several times and skips over the end thus leaving the viewer at a critical time. Other than that it is a wonderful series.

Excellent series. It has a wonderful look to it, is well-written and superbly-acted. Enjoyed it immensely.

Excellent series. Unfortunately, I had some trouble with disc 2, as there are scratches on it.

With a lot of fooling around, I was able to get past the bad areas.

It's too bad that some folks are so rough with these DVD's. Spoils it for others.

Morse: That's not enough.
Thursday: Sometimes it has to be. Not every question gets an answer. Learning to live with that's the hardest lesson there is.

Alice: That's why I liked you. You were difficult. Different, surely.
Morse: Difficult, definitely.
Alice: And awkward! You were all corners, socially.
Morse: Ah, well...
Alice: And so angry. Contra mundum. But yourself, most of all.
