Max DeBryn (Inspector Morse and Endeavour): A Life on Screen, Part One.

SPOILERS! SPOILERS! Hello everyone and welcome to my new post. This is part one of what will probably be a five part series of posts on the character of Max DeBryn, played by James Bradshaw in the Endeavour series and Peter Woodthorpe in the Inspector Morse series.

Part one covers the pilot episode of the Endeavour series and scenes from the first series. The scenes do include spoilers. So, if you haven’t watched the pilot episode and the first series then be warned.

I hope you enjoy. Take care.

After having looked after my mum for some 11 years she is now unfortunately in a nursing home. I'm afraid her dementia worsened as did her physical capabilities. UPDATE: My mum died from Covid-19 on the 6th May 2020. So, for the first time in 21 years I find myself no longer caring for anyone. Apart from my mum I was also a single parent to two children and also looked after my dad who had Alzheimers, (he died in 2005). So, I have decided to return to University to try and get another degree this time in English Literature. (My other degree I got some 30 years ago is one in Ecological Science). After a year at college I have passed all grades and now will start Edinburgh University in September 2019. I am now in second year having passed all the requirements in first year.

  1. What surprises me is that Endeavour and Max DeBryn never developed any closer friendship. Two young and single men, educated and intellectual with a deep interest for their line of work and somewhere over the years they both lost the girls they loved. Or as Max poetically puts it: Love and fishing, it all comes down to the same thing; the one that got away. Presumably he talks about a woman.
    Max is a keen angler and likes to work in his garden, two outdoor activities while Endeavour likes to read, solve crossword puzzle and listen to music. Usually something you do indoors. Despite that I can see more in common between Max and Endeavour than with Endeavour and Strange sharing a flat. If proposed at the time, would Endeavour have accepted the idea to rent a room in Max’s house? Well, that is all hypothetical now.
