Coda for a Standout Sleuth

An alert to Americans yearning to see the fifth and final season of Endeavour: your wait is almost over! PBS-TV’s Masterpiece series reported today that the Inspector Morse spin-off series will return with three more 90-minute episodes, beginning on June 18.

Previewing this season’s highlights, a news bulletin says: “Shaun Evans as the young Morse and Roger Allam as his superior officer face baffling new crimes and an unsolved case from the past. With characters from former seasons popping up in a grand finale, Morse must resolve his professional and romantic future. The London Times praised the final episodes as ‘classy, poignant.’”

Those 34th, 35th, and 36th installments in young Morse’s troubled story were broadcast in Great Britain during the last couple of months. And there’s been some disagreement regarding how they conclude the his story. The Killing Times declares they left “big questions unanswered,” while The Guardian says Season 5 offered “a perfect finale to one of TV’s classic crime shows.”

You can decide for yourself when Endeavour returns as part of Masterpiece’s summer lineup.
