There are 5 episodes including the pilot, but ITV has commissioned a second series of four episodes. Episode 2 airs this coming weekend.
When a young Secretarial student, Margaret Bell, dies suddenly at home, Endeavour senses there is more to the case than the preliminary medical verdict of ‘heart attack’.
Now working out of Cowley Police station, Endeavour has unofficially assumed the role of ‘bagman’ to DI Fred Thursday. However, newly arrived Superintendent Bright has other ideas, and when a respectable GP is found shot dead in a public lavatory, Endeavour‟s outlandish theories soon see him relegated to General Duties.
Humiliated and humbled, Endeavour has to investigate from the sidelines. Through a puzzling haze of deceit and misdirection, involving an Oxford physicist who worked on the atomic bomb, and the fate of a vulnerable single mother, Endeavour is forced to question Thursday‟s orders and risk his career to avert a family tragedy.
9:30pm Sunday June 16 on Seven.
