Endeavour Morse is a detective working in the police. In this series, his career only begins in Oxford City. The period of actions is the late 1960s. Morse just left Lonsdale College without obtaining a degree. During some time, he worked as a cipher clerk but soon he decided to join the police. In a couple of years, the young detective found the work in the police is disappointing and decided to quit. Before he did this, he and several of his co-workers were sent to the Cowley Police Station to help in the investigation of a missing 15 old girl.
Since Morse had studied at Oxford for some time, he could use his knowledge to try to deal with the residences of Oxford. Although Morse still wanted to quit, his superior believed that Endeavour was a reliable and honest and promising detective who should not leave this current position.
As the story progresses, the detective is getting involved in the investigation of a double-murder. He starts closely work with Thursday, an Inspector. The inspectors do not like the work of some of the superiors because it makes it difficult for them to investigate. The work of Morse is pretty successful because his is able to find the right answers to difficult questions.
The friends of Endeavour want him to take a Sergeant’s exam, which will relieve him of some duties, allowing focusing on the investigation. Because Morse was shot, his superiors placed him on light-duty.
The series has received more than 6,500,000 viewers. The part of Dorothea has been played by Frazil Abigail Thaw, a daughter of John Thaw playing the part of Inspector Morse in the original series.
