The young Inspector Morse

I am a fan of the television series about Chief Inspector Morse that starred John Edward Thaw as Morse and Kevin Whately as Inspector Lewis. I suspect my love for the television series has stopped me from reading the novels by Colin Dexter about the Chief Inspector as I do not want my image of him changed. From experience neither medium translates well into the other.

My love for the original cast made me apprehensive when young Morse was to appear in a pilot episode on television. How on earth were the casters supposed to find an actor who could portray a younger version of Thaw?

Sometimes I am pleasantly surprised and my meeting with Shawn Evans as the young Detective Constable Endeavour Morse and Roger Allam as Detective Fred Inspector Thursday was a delight. Endeavour is everything I could have hoped for and I have enjoyed watching each episode as they have come out.

I find myself needing to mention the music. My goodness the British understand the whole “mood” thing on screen. I love the music in the series. Absolutely love it.
