Hello Endeavourists and welcome to new post. Once again someone at PBS has sharpened their knife and aimed it episodes of Endeavour. Like Norman Bates stabbing Marion Crane the editor’s knife is plunged in with no thought to the effect it will have on their subject.
I have been made aware that three scenes were excised form the episode in the USA; a scene at the very top of the episode with Bright and another involving Endeavour and Max and a third involving Dorothea Frazil.
The scene with Bright I believe was crucial in setting not only the tone of the episode but of the series. It allowed the viewer to understand the humiliation and downfall of Chief Superintendent Reginald Bright. Without it many scenes in the episode and in later episodes will not make sense and the context will be lost.
The second scene with Max and Endeavour is maybe not as important as the Bright scene but it is interesting in allowing us the viewer to see Max outside his usual environment of the morgue or dealing with dead bodies. The scene added a different dimension to Max and also the conversation is interesting and humorous. The scene in the British version was split in two with a scene with Fred and Ronnie Box so I have included that for extra context.
The third scene involves a press conference attended by Ms Frazil. This scene is important only in that it showed Ms Frazil and showed that Ronnie and not Fred is the officer asked to take part in such matters. It also showed how much Bright has been sidelined. I have included some of the Endeavour/Strange scene that preceded the press conference to give context to the press conference within the episode.
If anyone notices any others let me know and I will add them to this post. Enjoy.
I would like to say a huge thank you to those who have become Patrons of the site and also a huge thank you to those who have made donations. What do I mean by Patrons?
What is Patreon? Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for artists and creators to get paid. It’s a membership platform that provides business tools for creators to run a subscription content service, with ways for artists to build relationships with their subscribers, or “patrons”.
With Patreon you set up how much you wish to pay monthly. There are three tiers, $5, $10 and $15. It’s like paying for a magazine subscription.
Patreon primarily uses Paypal which is easy to join and a safe way to send money. https://www.paypal.com/uk/home
