Hello everyone and welcome to a new post.
Well, it looks like the Endeavour series will end as predicted, at 33 episodes. It is no surprise to those who believed that Russell Lewis the creator and writer of all the Endeavour episodes would not go beyond the number of episodes that the original Morse series and the Lewis series stopped at. I have said many times in the past that I believed that it would be disrespectful for Russell to make more episodes that The Morse and Lewis series. But, if nothing else the Endeavour series has become tired and has lost it’s way in regards to who Endeavour Morse is as a character.
Here is an article from the gossip magazine Hello! published on the 6th July 2020. Written by Francesca Shillcock. The article has been taken from the British TV magazine The Radio Times from near the beginning of the year. It’s not much of a story but I thought you would like to read it.
Endeavour’s Shaun Evans confirms his future on the show.
Endeavour has been keeping its fans entertained for seven series but lead star Shaun Evans, who plays a young Endeavour Morse in the show, has hinted that his character may not be returning after series eight.
The actor, 40, who has played the lead since it began in 2012, was talking to Radio Times earlier this year ahead of the premiere of series seven, when he explained he admitted to not wanting to “milk” his time on the show.
“This is our story and we shouldn’t be staying at the party too long,” he began, adding: “It’s difficult because it’s like planning your own funeral. Why would I not want to be earning this money? Why would I not want to be hanging out with these people who I love? But you have to be strict [because] we shouldn’t be milking it.”
Russell Lewis, who writes the show that is a prequel to Inspector Morse, also added that the show’s end could be on the horizon. “I’ll do it for as long as they want me to, but I do know how it ends. We wouldn’t want to get to the point where you can see the join [of the two shows], I think we’ll bow out long before that.”
Although fans would no doubt be disappointed to hear news of the show finishing, it’s not over yet! Russell also opened up to Radio Times about when to expect the next instalment, and also hinted about the upcoming storyline. “Everything is in the planning stage,” he said. “We know the cards that remain in our hand, and it’s very much a case of arranging the order in which they’re played in order to bring about the desired ‘grand slam.'”
The popular detective show is a spin-off from the hugely popular John Thaw series Inspector Morse. In the show, Shaun plays a younger incarnation of the character, who is highly intelligent but sometimes struggles to connect with his more human side, as displayed by his mentor DI Fred Thursday.

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.
