There's a beautifully melancholic feel to the return of the classy Inspector Morse prequel as both Endeavour and Thursday (Shaun Evans and Roger Allam) struggle to come to terms with the departure of Thursday's daughter, Joan

There's a beautifully melancholic feel to the return of the classy Inspector Morse prequel as both Endeavour and Thursday (Shaun Evans and Roger Allam) struggle to come to terms with the departure of Thursday’s daughter, Joan.

As Endeavour waits anxiously for the results of his sergeant's exam, he's asked to act as liaison officer when a Russian professor takes part in a chess tournament, but the detective is soon embroiled in a disturbing case after a scientist is found dead in the River Cherwell.

There's a nice nod to the past as James Laurenson, a guest star in the first episode of Inspector Morse 30 years ago this month, makes an appearance tonight.
