Endeavour 8pm, STV
A FTER seventeen and half years (okay: eight episodes) during which James Norton developed near-fatal RSI from clicking again and again on that computer mouse to transfer huge sums of money via his exciting online electronic banking, the BBC’s megaexpensive-looking McMafia reaches its conclusion tonight. And, as the story moves to Russia, there’s actually a little action…but if you’re among the many, many viewers who gave up on it as a disappointing heap of turgid whispering a month ago, you’ll find it hard to care. In which case: Young Morse (Shaun Evans) is here, with another dependably enjoyable two-hour case, as a glitzy crew from Hollywood descends upon the Oxford of 1968 to film a hammy horror mummy movie sequel. Soon, there are murders – is an ancient Egyptian curse at work? Or something grubbier and grimmer? The 60s cinema details are fun, and there’s a guest spot from Phil Daniels as DCI Thursday’s (Roger Allam) estranged brother, Charlie. Meanwhile, passion is in the air for Morse. Rarely ends well.
