Review: Endeavour

Inspector Morse Prequel is a Hit (But a Slow Go)
New York Times

Having started last year with a single episode, the prequel series Endeavour (Sunday - PBS, 9pm), is now starting fresh with a four-episode first season. Given another opportunity to wallow, tastefully, in nostalgia for its predecessor, the new show doesn’t miss a beat. A substantial audience — more than seven million viewers in Britain — is happy with that, and Endeavour has already been renewed for a second season.

Other viewers — those who watch mysteries for the mystery — may lose patience as the episode’s overly complicated plot, involving a dead secretary, a doctor murdered in a public restroom, a series of post office robberies and a love child, is resolved haphazardly and implausibly.
