ENDEAVOUR: S6EP1, PYLON. Review + Locations, Literary References, Music etc. SPOILERS

 

Author: Chris Sullivan

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. 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. A busy time ahead made even busier by my writing a book on the TV series, Lewis.

  1. Thankfully I purchased the DVD set of Series 6 from ITV rather than waiting for PBS to broadcast it. Out of curiosity, I watched Pylon on PBS fully expecting it to be butchered as were the previous series. I was not disappointed.. The entire beginning was cut so you would not see the full advertisement with Bright and the Pelican. The first scene shown in the PBS version was the one with Stanley Clemence in the doorway.Another scene at the press conference, Ms. Frazil and others were cut out. I became angry so I shut it off knowing there were most likely other scenes cut/shortened. This first scene with Bright would, in my opinion, be very important in a later episode. A few other things – 1) I think Morse and Joan could have had a fling without it reflecting on the original Morse series. None of his relationships lasted and this could have been one of those. 2) Why wouldn’t Joan be at the fete? It is a village fair and many would want to go. 3) I think it might have been possible for “the group” to lose touch with each other given their separate assignments and their, most understandably, bitterness. And Morse did try to connect with Thursday but got no response from him. I have to wonder what other British shows shown on PBS that I’ve watched were sliced up as well. Well, If there is a series 7 I will most definitely purchase that one too, either the DVD or from Amazon, although the DVD was available sooner and has extras. I love your reviews and all your website information, Chris. You point out some of the nuances that might be missed in watching.

  2. I feel quite certain that we lose things via PBS because of all the advertising. They may not call it that but it certainly is – the cruises, and Ralph Lauren. I don’t give to them anymore. I’ve been watching on Netflix DVD.
