Lex to feature in Morse prequel ENDEAVOUR

Lex to feature in Morse prequel ENDEAVOUR

Following the initial success of the TV movie ENDEAVOUR, set in the 1960s and a prequel to the long-running Inspector Morse series for ITV, Lex Shrapnel has been cast in one of the four new episodes currently in production.  He will play a character called Roy Adamson, in a story to be directed by Tom Vaughan. Like the pilot movie, the production comes from Mammoth Screen, who have also been responsible for the likes of Lost in Austen, the revival of Bouquet of Barbed Wire, and new series Falcón - currently being broadcast on Sky Atlantic.

 

Shaun Evans will return to the role of Endeavour Morse for the four 120-minute (ITV screentime with adverts) episodes, which have been filmed on location in Oxford since September 2012. Roger Allam co-stars as Inspector Fred Thursday and James Bradshaw as Dr Max Debryn, while Abigail Thaw, John Thaw's daughter, will make further appearances as Dorothea Frazil.


Consolidated ratings for the one-off Endeavour - which transmitted on ITV1 on 2 January 2012 to mark the 25th anniversary of the very first Morse episode - were 8.2m, with an audience share of 30 per cent. Impressive figures these days, hence the commissioning of more adventures.

If he's only in one episode then he's either the murderer or "corpse of the week" Wink
