Honest Endeavour

‘IN the final episode of Sex And The City, we at last got to learn the first name of Mr Big, Carrie’s on-off lover through all six seasons of the show. For anyone who cares, it was John.

‘John, eh…’

But it is not the first show to keep viewers guessing in this way up to the very last minute -Inspector Morse was the first to do so, and viewers had to wait seven series before the truth came out.

The Inspector Morse programmes seem part of a very distant past these days, a relic from a world that hadn’t invented reality TV.

John Thaw is sadly dead and Kevin Whately returned whence he came to Auf Wiedersehen Pet via Peak Practice.

But long enough has now passed since the demise of Oxford’s grumpiest detective for ITV to revive him (and his faithful sidekick) as the centrepiece of its Friday evening offering.

Tonight, Morse is dragged into a family feud when a well-known business tycoon is murdered – and finds himself the target of a hate campaign in the local press.

By the way, it’s Endeavour Morse, in case you were wondering…’
