the future of endeavour…

The seventh series of ITV’s Inspector Morse prequel Endeavour concludes this Sunday with a typically high-octane finale. As tension mounts between DS Endeavour Morse (Shaun Evans) and his stalwart mentor DCI Fred Thursday (Roger Allam), is the end nigh for one of TV’s most compelling partnerships? Here, in an exclusive interview, Endeavour creator and writer Russell Lewis tells TV Times what the future holds… Can you tease how we leave things in this week’s finale? It’s a shocking ending. All the hares that have been set running come to fruition. We answer questions and start more about where we go from here. Things are said in anger, but can the slate be wiped clean? We’ve invested so much in Endeavour and Thursday as a pairing that the cracks are tough to watch. But…

a thursday prequel?

Fans of Endeavour have long been campaigning for a prequel exploring Fred Thursday’s early life and career. ‘I’ve thought about writing a novel on Thursday’s post-war London policing career before Oxford, that’d be exciting,’ says Russell. ‘But this whole universe has mileage in it, perhaps beyond the end of where we get to. There are characters I’d like to know better, like Max [the pathologist, played by James Bradshaw], Strange [Endeavour’s colleague, played by Sean Rigby] and Win [Thursday’s wife, played by Caroline O’Neill].’…

a new tv cop!

Away from the world of Morse, Russell is now writing ITV’s new two-part crime drama Grace, starring John Simm as troubled Detective Superintendent Roy Grace. ‘Hopefully they will be two-hour treats but they’re a different kettle of fish from Endeavour,’ says Russell. ‘They’re contemporary adaptations of Peter James’ successful novels and are more thrillers than whodunnits. Writing for John Simm is like a Christmas present. We’ll have a wonderful time shooting in Brighton in the spring.’…

‘there are high expectations’

LAST TANGO IN HALIFAX NEW SUNDAY / BBC1 / 9PM / EP 1 of 4 / DRAMA The course of true love never runs smooth, and that’s certainly been the case for octogenarian lovebirds Alan and Celia Buttershaw, whose romance has touched our hearts over four series of BBC1 drama Last Tango in Halifax. The story of the childhood sweethearts who rekindled their romance decades later proved an immediate hit, and viewers have been begging for BAFTA-winning screenwriter Sally Wainwright (Happy Valley, Gentleman Jack) to pen more episodes since the last season aired at Christmas 2016. As the drama returns after a three-year hiatus, TV Times is thrilled to be invited on location in Leeds, where the show is filmed, to watch Sir Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid in action as Alan and Celia,…
