Endeavour Morse…

25 Sep


From the crime novels of Colin Dextor, we have the Endeavour series with Shaun Evans as Inspector Morse,  and Inspector Morse series with John Thaw as Detective Chief Inspector Morse GM.

Why the name Endeavour? …Morse prefers to be known as Morse…his father was an enthusiast of all things Captain Cook, and a Quaker, used to names like Faith, Hope and Charity, so he called his son Endeavour after Cook’s ship.

Two very enjoyable TV series.


Enjoying Grantchester…

Sidney Chambers is a charming clergyman who turns into an investigator when one of his parishioners dies under suspicious circumstances in this drama set in 1953. He partners up with gruff, down-to-earth police inspector Geordie Keating, whose methodical approach to police work complements Sidney’s intuitive techniques of getting information out of people. The two partners — who bring different insights into the crimes they start to unravel — form a true friendship as they work together. As he is beginning his new career, Sidney’s personal life comes apart when he finds out that Amanda, the woman with whom he is secretly in love, has become engaged, making him think he has missed his chance with her.
