Masterpiece Mystery! Endeavour Series 2 arrives on DVD and Blu-ray July 8. Shaun Evans returns to duty at Oxford City Police as Colin Dexter’s cerebral Endeavour Morse, before his signature red Jaguar but with his deductive powers already running in high gear. His partnership with DI Fred Thursday now firmly cemented, the two men must band together to crack this fresh quartet of dazzlingly complex cases, shaking the highest pillars of Oxford society as they go.
The DVD and Blu-ray feature the full UK-length edition of Series 2 as well as special features–“Creating Endeavour” and “Shooting Endeavour’s Oxford.”
Endeavour Series 2 features four whodunits. Descriptions of these mysteries are below.
Four months after DC Endeavour Morse’s brush with death, he returns to duty with Oxford City Police and is reunited with DI Fred Thursday. Morse’s first case involves a John Doe who plummets to his death in what appears to be a routine suicide. When Morse discovers the man’s mysterious final message, he begins to consider seemingly unrelated cases, causing Thursday to worry that Morse’s wounds may have been more in mind than body.
When an elderly man is murdered with a ceremonial dagger, Morse’s investigation leads him to an isolated and dreary school for girls. Endeavour digs into the school building’s disturbing history and learns of a series of murders that took place almost 100 years ago to the day. As the centenary approaches, Morse races to prevent the ghosts of the past from crashing into the present.
A woman found choked to death with a black silk stocking marks the third strangling in a month, putting the Oxford City Police on edge. Morse and Thursday grapple with their own personal travails as they work to narrow down the list of possible suspects before the Oxford Strangler strikes again.
Morse investigates the cases of a missing boy, a dead journalist, and an absconder from an open prison, drawing him into a chain reaction of troubling events that could reveal horrors of the past. Morse and Thursday band together as their investigation deepens and leads them to confront corruption on the police force and misconduct extending to the upper echelons of Oxford society.
