Well, writers have to brainstorm a lot to put the story in favor of the couple. Will Morse transfer to another department? Let’s find out.
Endeavour, created by Russell Lewis, is a British drama series on ITV. It is a prequel of Inspector Morse. The show is set in the 60s and 70s in Oxford. The series follows Endeavour Morse’s (Shaun Evans) journey from a young detective constable to a detective sergeant. The series centered on Moore’s early career after leaving his college, Lonsdale College of Oxford University, without taking his degree. Then he spent time working as a cipher clerk in the Royal Corps of Signal. However, soon after two years, he was disappointed with law enforcement and tried to resign. Later, he was sent with other detectives of the Carshall-Newton Police to solve a missing girl case. That lead him to his new position as a detective sergeant.
