What’s it about
Shaun Evans returns for the sixth season of Endeavour, the popular prequel to the beloved Inspector Morse series. Set in the 1960s, the show follows Endeavour Morse in his early years.
Locked up in a maze of offices at ITV’s London headquarters, Shaun Evans, so quiet as endeavour Morse, is venting his passion.
“I’m interested in stories,” he said, slapping his hand on the table. “What is it about people sitting around campfires and telling each other stories to light, entertain, educate and inspire?” What about the amazing history, religion and books? You should know more about this line of work. Okay? “Almost,” said I. “Oh yes,” he shouted, “you just want me to downplay everything!”
Really, I don’t want him to demean anything. I’m just trying to keep up with a 38-year-old man whose enthusiasm is half his age. In time we were together, he told me about his decision to direct and star in endeavour, why he kept trying to understand the world, why he stopped drinking, and how much he cared about the people he worked with. “I really like these guys,” he said of the endeavour team.
He also asked me not to write anything that implied the utmost respect for his colleagues. “I’ve always been cautious,” he said. “I’m going to say that now.”
