Enjoy a 1960s prequel to the popular Inspector Morse series. 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") stars as the young Endeavour Morse, before his signature red Jaguar, but with his deductive powers already running in high gear. MASTERPIECE MYSTERY! Endeavour airs Saturday, December 29, 2012 at 5 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 11 and 1011).
