Doctor Who Vs. Endeavour, Series 1

Produced by Mammoth and Masterpiece for ITV
Studios, 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.
Like Morse and it's sequel series, Lewis (2000 to 
2015), Endeavour is set in Oxford. Liverpool-born 
actor Shaun Evans now portrayed the young 
Endeavour Morse (created by Colin Dexter), who 
began his career as a Detective Constable with 
the City Police CID at Cowley in 1965.

season was originally broadcast in the spring of
2013, and concluded another repeat run on
ITV3 last night.
