It’s the end of an era, as the epic tale of Inspector Morse, the iconic Oxford detective celebrated the world over, draws to a close. From the original Inspector Morse (1987-2000) to the spin-off series Lewis (2006-2015) to a decade of the detective’s backstory in Endeavour, the Oxford universe of crime has continued to fascinate viewers and enjoy enormous global appeal. In advance of the final season on June 18, Morse & The Last Endeavour: A MASTERPIECE MYSTERY! Special premieres Sunday, June 11, 2023, at 9:00 p.m. on PBS, and the PBS app.

Morse & The Last Endeavour features interviews with the main cast members, who reflect on the rich appeal of the series set in 1960s Britain. It also goes behind the scenes during the filming of Endeavour’s last season, as decades of interconnecting plots are tied together. Actress Abigail Thaw, daughter of original Morse star John Thaw, reveals how she became a regular member of the Endeavour cast as newspaper editor Dorothea Frazil. Kevin Whately, who starred as Sergeant Lewis in Morse, reflects on the tremendous effect the hit detective series had on his career. And Endeavour star Shaun Evans traces his journey from acting to directing episodes of the series.
