Before Inspector Morse, there was the rookie Constable Morse, fed up with police work and ready to nip his career in the bud by handing in his resignation. That is, until a murder turned up that only he could solve. Shaun Evans (The Take, The Virgin Queen) returns for a second season as the young Endeavour Morse, before his signature red Jaguar but with his deductive powers already running in high gear. A woman found choked to death with a black silk stocking is the third strangling victim in a month, putting the Oxford city police on edge. Morse and Thursday grapple with their personal travails as they work to narrow the list of possible suspects before the Oxford strangler strikes again.
