Hi Endeavourists. With the recent news that series four of Endeavour will make references to the original Morse series as a nod to it being 30 years since the very first episode, (30 years???????? Scary), a blog reader asked me what characters or actors I would like to see in the new series. A difficult question as there are quite a few. But when pushed I would want the following characters/actors reappear in the new Endeavour series.
Firstly, I think we all agree that McNutt has to make an appearance as all Morse fans know that he becomes Morse’s mentor when he becomes a sergeant.

I will be very annoyed if they don’t use a Scottish actor to play the younger McNutt.
Secondly I would like to see Judy Loe who played Adele Cecil in the Morse episode, ‘Death is now my Neighbour’.

I would be happy to see her playing another character or for the character of Adele Cecil to cross paths with Endeavour during an investigation.
Next up I would like to see the actor Ian McDiarmid who played Hugo De Vries in the Morse episode ‘Masonic Mysteries’. Again I would be happy for Ian to play a different character or for a passing mention of De Vries.

Next up would be a mention of Laura Hobson or Dr. Grayling Russell or Robbie Lewis. I know their characters are all too young in the 60s to be part of the series but it would be nice having some of the characters in the new series with the same or similar names.
Another character that would be nice to see in the new Endeavour series is Harry Field who appeared in the Morse episode, ‘Who Killed Harry Field?’
So, that is my wishlist for the new series. What is your wishlist? What characters or actors would you like to see in the new Endeavour series?
