Shaun Evans returns as Endeavor airing on Sundays here in the US this July. It's the first in a series about the young Inspector Morse.
Abigail Thaw (daughter of John Thaw) is back as well, she'll be appearing as Dorothea Frazil.

I enjoyed Endeavour, and it's nice seeing Morse gradually develop the character traits that John Thaw had - I loved the bit when they showed how he gets his limp!

It's just finished here, and was very good, with a continuing story arc as well as separate cases each week.

It was on here a while ago so I don't remember too much, I think it followed one story arc didn't it? Very good as usual, and very classy and well acted, and I love the way they build up Morse's character to how he was portrayed by John Thaw ie when older, it was great in the earlier series seeing how he got his injury etc, and how the other characters gradually develop too.
