Also on the box

Thanks to video recording I was also able to watch, last night, ITV’s drama Endeavour, which resurrected Colin Dexter’s DCI Morse as a detective constable at the outset of his career. Having just done a Skinner prequel, and with more in the works, I’m not going to knock the concept, and I enjoyed the finished product into the bargain. At the moment it’s a one-off, but with Kevin Whately getting too crusty to play Lewis  in that series for much longer than next year, I expect that the long term future of the Morse franchise will lie in  the hands of Shaun Evans and Roger Allam, who was excellent as Morse’s mentor DI Fred Thursday.

      Nah, Joy. Okay as a one-off but Morse has been recycled enough. TIme for new material.
