Doctor Who Vs. Endeavour, Series 1

Produced by Mammoth and Masterpiece, this period 
crime drama serves as a prequel to the long-running 
and influential series, Inspector Morse, which ran from 
1987 to 2000 and earned six BAFTA awards.

present), Endeavour is set in Oxford. Liverpool-born 
actor Shaun Evans now portrays the young Endeavour 
Morse (pictured), who began his career as a Detective Constable with the City Police CID at Cowley in 1965.
