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

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.

Outstanding production. Well written, not one wasted word. Clever plots. Mercifully free from diatribe, preaching and political correctness. One of the best British series ever.

I was completely taken with this series. It works both as a prequel to the Morse series as well as a stand-alone series. The musical score is outstandingly beautiful, and there are some wonderful cinematic moments (a closing shot of an applauding audience jumps seamlessly to a scene of pouring rain). I look forward to more from this series; and yes, I will probably going through the Morse series again.

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.
