En­deav­our is the new Morse code

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Jenni Baird -

Thaw who died in 2002. This new Morse is a pre­quel that goes by the char­ac­ter’s first name, En­deav­our.

Es­sen­tially a pilot episode for a new se­ries of In­spec­tor Morse movies set in the ’ 60s, it in­tro­duces the young Morse, played by Shaun Evans (left), who faints in the au­topsy room and loves cross­word puzzles and opera. Evans didn’t set out to mimic Thaw’s for­mance.

‘‘ I think enough time’s elapsed for us to do some­thing fresh . . ,’’ he says. ‘‘ For me to have copied a walk or a talk or cer­tain man­ner­isms, I wouldn’t have felt like I would have done it jus­tice.’’
