Before I continue, in case you didn’t know, I have written a book on the Endeavour series. It has a colour (color) version, a B&W version and lastly a kindle version.

The book is only available from Amazon and can be purchased on Click HERE to visit the Amazon page.

The link below is my review of the episode UNIFORM. My review of course includes information on locations, music (though some music may be different to what was used in the US and Australia due to copyright), literary references and much, much more.

If anyone is aware of any scenes missing from the US broadcast that were in the UK version please let me know and I will create a post with the missing scenes.

Thank you to Kim Quiddington who attended the play, took the photos,  and was able to get Roger to sign my programme. The play took place at the Theatre Royal Bath and starred not only Roger Allam but also Ian McKellen.

Here are photos of the Theatre Royal.

Up next the programme.


And finally, Kim’s review of the play.

Frank and Percy. At the Theatre, Royal Bath. 5th August 2023. My review of Frank and Percy. Starring Sir Ian McKellen and Roger Allam. The stage set is simple yet effective. It starts with Frank in Hampstead Heath Park and he’s calling for his dog. Along comes Percy who is also walking his dog. You do not see the dogs. You just hear the dogs and they are off stage ( coming through the speakers) they introduce themselves. What follows is the two strangers, get to know each other over the course of the play, and they become more than friends. Frank is straight and was married until he lost his wife through cancer. Percy was in a relationship with another man; the surprise from Frank is comical when Percy tells him he’s gay. There was a lot of comedy as well as some pathos as the audience are taken through the highs and lows of their friendship/relationship, they argue, fall out with each other; make up with other and are their for each other during the difficult times of what life throws at them. Both actors were superb, the range of emotions was heartfelt and so real. I laughed with them and cried with them. Roger even does some singing Sir Ian joined in! A fantastic play by two superb actors and the best news we heard from Roger is the play is going to be in London. (He doesn’t know when)
