This review is from: Endeavour - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
This new season of 'Endeavour' keeps its promises, and more! Our favorite Oxfordian detective finds himself in a terrible situation after a series of events running throughout the four episodes.
After a long convalescence, Morse is thrown back into the world of murders, police corruption and politics, with the added shadow of a Freemasonry lodge. The young DC makes enemies during his inquests and some of them would stop at nothing to prevent the unearthing of dreadful secrets.. In 'Trove', Morse's dedication in finding a missing young woman leads to the arrest of a showbusiness manager with connections. In 'Nocturne', a seemingly haunted school for girls hides a killer with a century-old grudge. In 'Sway', Morse's intelligence is confronted to a strangler whose weapon of choice is women's silk stockings. And in 'Neverland', a former correctional facility for boys hides a terrible secret involving high-ranking policemen and property developers.
This show benefits from Russell Lewis' brilliant writing and from an excellent casting of actors. Shaun Evans is as endearing as ever in his portrayal of a traumatized but determined Morse, who finds romance with his beautiful next-door neighbor played by Shvorne Marks. Roger Allam is wonderful as DI Thursday, whose paternal feelings turn him into a protective lion whenener Morse is endangered. And the secondary characters are also excellent: PC Strange, torrn between his friendship with Morse and his ambitions; Dorothea Frazil, diligently providing our hero with information from the press; DS Jakes' overconfidence is shattered at the recollection of his childhood in the correctional facility; and Chief Superintendant Bright finally understands his 'friends' in spheres of influence actually consider him a fool.
This series ends with a major cliffhanger: how will Morse ever get out of the trap set by his enemies? Will DI Thursday survive the shoot-out?
The worst part is having to wait for another year to find out!
