      Melanie McFarland Endeavour will have run for nine by the time it's finished, and owes its longevity to the crumpled, poetic humanity Evans brings to a detective millions have gotten to know but have only begun to fully appreciate. Jun 21, 2022 Full Review Carol Midgley Times (UK) Win's furious gurning was scarier than anything in that house. They should have given us two hours of that. Rated: 3/5 Oct 20, 2021 Full Review Deborah Ross The Mail on Sunday (UK) The Morse prequel, Endeavour, is now set in the 1970s and while it's beloved by many I wish they'd spend less time on the mise-en-scene -- flares, Chopper bikes -- and more on the plot. Rated: 2/5 Sep 28, 2021 Full Review

      Shirley C I can't get enough of Endeavor. Will hate it when it ends. Entertaining, excellent acting, profoundly written and executed, this Sunday night (can't wait for the next episode) hour and a half of pleasure watching for my husband and me make us realize how much better the Brits know how to present a good and memorable show that meets the needs of the viewers. Season nine is soon to come and I can't say enough how sad we will be when it ends, although we know it must. Shawn Evans can't be the older Morse and that series in itself could never be redone. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/31/23 Full Review Fyrst S Well written, well acted, amazing early 70s period piece. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/13/23 Full Review Amelia N Endeavor is one of the best television programs to come along in the past decade. A prequel to the original series, the premise of the show follows Detective Endeavor as he unfolds murder mysteries set in the world or academia in beautiful Oxford, England. The emotionally rich performances (Shaun Evans is one of my favorite actors) and beautiful production design put this show in a category of its own. For those of you tired of watching mystery stories unfold with excessive violence, this series keeps you on the edge of your seat with thoughtful storytelling. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/09/23 Full Review Andrew B L Endeavor's writing and plot lines (holes) have been getting progressively worse, culminating in a terrible 8th season. Wholely unrealistic. I'll skip series 9. Some series should accept the inevitable and quit while they're ahead, perhaps at season 2 or 3 while they're at the top of their game. So disappointing. Clearly the actors, who are fine, struggled mightily. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Andrew S This season seemed a little sub-par compared to the rest. Felt a little cheap, like they had a smaller budget or something. The writing wasn't as tight and the stories were not very intense or engaging. The actors didn't really get to shine. Not bad, just not as great as normal. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member I think it is one of the best series that exists. Every year has been carefully designed to recreate the time where it is set. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a review
