Hello everyone and welcome to a new post. Here is an article from The Daily Express by By Andrew Ffrench

Scenes have been filmed in Oxford for series 9 of Inspector Morse prequel Endeavour – the final series.

Film crews were in the city on Sunday and Monday, with some scenes shot at Christ Church Meadow.

ITV has confirmed that Endeavour series 9 will be the last series.

The Inspector Morse spin-off starring Shaun Evans and Roger Allam launched in 2012 and scenes have been shot on location in the city ever since.

But the long-running Morse franchise will finally come to an end, once the latest three episodes are screened.

The announcement came as film crews arrived in Oxford to film scenes for the latest episodes, which could be screened before the end of the year.

In a statement, ITV said: “After 10 phenomenally successful years, producers Mammoth Screen, and screenwriter Russell Lewis, Shaun Evans and Roger Allam have mutually decided to bring the internationally renowned Endeavour to a close, and the series currently filming in Oxford will be the last.

“ITV’s drama commissioning team respectfully accepts this creative decision and would like to extend heartfelt thanks to everyone associated with Endeavour who have made the drama such a well loved part of the UK’s drama landscape.

“ITV would particularly like to thank Damien Timmer, Russell Lewis, Shaun Evans and Roger Allam who have created television history following in the footsteps of Morse’s acclaimed creator, the late, great, Colin Dexter and the much missed John Thaw.”

Since filming began for ITV’s Inspector Morse episodes in the late 1980s, film crews for Inspector Morse, Lewis and Endeavour have been a familiar sight on the streets of Oxford.

Executive producer Damien Timmer said on behalf of producers, Mammoth Screen: “Endeavour has been a real labour of love for all of us, and we salute Russell Lewis for his extraordinary achievement in chronicling Endeavour Morse’s coming of age across 72 hours of TV.

“Russell always knew where he wanted the series to end, and that Remorseful Day is nearly upon us!

“We’d like to thank Shaun and Roger and all the other members of the Endeavour family on and off screen, and to the show’s fans both in the UK and abroad.”

Up until a few years ago I was my mum's full time carer. She died in, 2020, of Covid. I am now about to start my third year year at Edinburgh University studying for a second degree this one being English Literature. My other degree is in Ecological Science. At the moment I am attempting to write a novel.

  1. Looks like Shaun is directing the first episode again……(more obvious in other pics),

    Still trying to understand what changed and when during S8 to continue to S9. .also why they are filming now but not broadcasting until 2023 (even though this article says they may telecast this year the promo trailer and most other articles say 2023) so that puts them out with their 50 year timeline and also they miss the opportunity with the 10 years since the first Endeavour

    Oh well that will remain a mystery I guess….

  2. I am just glad we are getting three more episodes. Hopefully there may be a final 2 hour movie after the final regular Season 9 Episode3 if we are lucky.

    1. I wouldn’t count on there being a 2-hour movie after the “final” 3 episodes.

      1. I doubt it too – however, stars say never – that’s it and when careers are waning or the $$ (or ego) is right – never becomes ‘one more time’ – even look in the Morse world – Whatley came back after the ‘finish’ for Lewis… but can’t see it for a few years….
