Hi Mateys. Though I have already spotted Colin in the Endeavour episodes and put that information in my series of posts on the connections between the Endeavour series and Morse and Lewis, that was only done in picture form.
Having already done videos on the appearances of Colin in the Morse and Lewis series’ I thought it only made sense to create one on his appearances in the newest addition to the Morse universe, Endeavour. This video only has the first 13 episodes. For the other ten appearances scroll below the video to see them.
I hope you all enjoy.
A update to this post (17/07/2016). A follower of my blog, Fran, believes she may have found Colin in the final episode, ‘Coda’. I think she may be right. Colin’s appearance happens during the concert Endeavour attends at 14 minutes and 20 seconds. Fran believes Colin is one of the cello players; the one where we only see the back of his head. Why would the camera linger on the back of this person’s head unless they were leaving a clue to something important. What do you all think of this idea?
Endeavour S4E1 ‘Game’:
As most of you will know Colin Dexter did not be appear in the series four episodes due to ill health. However the producers have made sure that he appears in the episode in one way or another. In this episode Colin’s picture hangs in the office of Dorothea Frazil.
Endeavour: Series 4, Episode 2 ‘Canticle’:
In this episode Colin’s picture appears in the newspaper shown near the end of the episode.
Endeavour: Series 4, Episode 3, ‘Lazaretto’:
In this episode Colin’s picture appears as a caricature in a drawing on the hospital ward.
Endeavour: Series 4, Episode 4, ‘Harvest’:
It took two viewings to find Mr Dexter and it is a rather cunning way to have him in the show if not physically.
ENDEAVOUR: ‘Muse’ S5E1;
The newspaper is being read by George Fancy in Lewis Peek’s first scene in the police station.
ENDEAVOUR: ‘CARTOUCHE’ S5E2:
ENDEAVOUR: ‘Passenger’ S5E3:
A lovely tribute to Colin. Employee of the month? Perversely he was our employee. We handed him our hard earned cash and he wrote many excellent books for all of us. 🙂
ENDEAVOUR: ‘COLOURS’ S5E4;
ENDEAVOUR: ‘Quartet’ S5E5;
Difficult one this week. I could be wrong in this but the chap who was sitting at the back of the pub in the final scene did have a look of Colin Dexter.
Also, Endeavour looks at him as the scene fades to black.
ENDEAVOUR: ‘ICARUS’ S5E6;
I’m not 100% sure but… This is during the scene when Thursday and Strange are interviewing Blackwell.
