Great Pilot EpisodeBy Chrisaljack (413 reviews) from Hellingly , 14 Oct 2013This pilot of the subsequent series sets a really good standard that bodes well for the future. There is a clever link to the 'real' Morse at the end of this episode. A great 'prequel' that stands comfortably on its own merits.
Quality viewingBy a customer , 09 May 2013Absorbing look back into the earlier career of a character that became a house hold name in the detective world. The seeds sown in this pilot film throw light on how the character of Morse came to be. Closing scene in the car very clever.
More....more ....more pleaseBy Serg10 (1 review) , 06 May 2013This, in conjunction with the four episodes shown subsequently on ITV, makes me long for more of the same.....absolutely excellent....really hope this becomes a long runner.

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideEndeavour The young Morse on an important and difficult murder case although this story stands alone, there is no doubt that if we did not already know and love Morse, as John Thaw who Endeavour becomes there would be something missing. The older man haunts this story as we try to detect elements of the personality in the young man that we know will come in future. He is ornery, gifted at detection and in love with music; he has great passions. And now we learn who his mother was, and why he is so out of joint in his social surroundings. While I think someone coming to it without knowing the later television series would enjoy the mystery, and its solution, etc. it is greatly enhanced in knowing John Thaws character later. For me, however, there were credibility issues when final denouement comes; it seems to me more about the young Morses reaction the writer was aiming at than a credible story. Really enjoyable however. very good acting esp from Shawn Evans.
Endeavour, a young Morse without Lewis.By thecuckoo (136 reviews) , 19 Jun 2012Briliant, all about a young Morse as a Dectective Sergeant in the police force not sure if this is right for him.
But he comes up with some right conclusions on a murder case and comes under the eye of Inspector Thurday who also takes Endeavour under his wing and helps to steer him through.
All set in and around Oxford again.
Several have mentioned and I agree it would make a great series.
