Endeavour is an ITV prequel to the long-running series Inspector Morse. The show follows the story of a young Morse (played by Shaun Evans) after he leaves university. The show is set in England - but where is it filmed?
The new series is set on New Year’s Eve in 1969 and the start of a new era is here.
ITV gave a synopsis for the first episode, they said: “As Endeavour sees in the new year – 1970 – at an opera house in Venice, a murder on an Oxford towpath speaks to Thursday’s intuition, and convinced he has the man responsible, he vows to bring him to justice.
“Returning home, Endeavour makes a new acquaintance, and old friendships show signs of strain.
“Later, when an exciting new educational television programme appeals for Academic presenters, a contentious college project develops into a fatal battle of the sexes.”
