Series 1 of 1960s based detective drama Endeavour comes to DVD this May
So it's sort of not unusual these days, since enough time has past between the last decade where that sort of thing happened, to make a period piece which either rejoices or looks down upon the old ways of the humble copper.
We aren't exactly sure which of those this is, but ITV Studios Global Entertainment are releasing Endeavour: The Complete First Series on DVD this coming 6th May.
Yes, if you haven't already guessed it, this is a prequel series to the Inspector Morse franchise.
Starring Shaun Evans, Roger Allam, James Bradshaw, Anton Lesser, Jack Laskey and Sean Rigby, this is spread across two discs and carries a recommended retail price of £19.99.
Synopsis and trailer follow...
DC Endeavour Morse investigates four compelling new cases amongst the dreaming spires of 1960s Oxford. Newly appointed as ‘bagman’ to boss and mentor DI Fred Thursday, Endeavour must navigate a minefield of police politics to solve a quartet of baffling murder mysteries.
Dark family secrets, a terrifying battle of wits against a diabolical serial killer, a Royal visit to a local munitions factory and the shadow of London's gangland over Oxford. All will threaten to test Endeavour’s deductive skills to breaking point.
