Fans will be thrilled to see these new faces make an appearance.

The Endeavour series 7 episode 1 cast enlists some serious talent!

What is your favourite British detective drama series?

There are so many great ones, with the likes of Line of Duty, Grantchester, Death in Paradise, Vera, Father Brown and many more all deserving of praise. 

However, if prompted to answer such a question, we’d wager plenty of audiences would declare Endeavour as their show of choice! 

The popular Inspector Morse prequel first arrived on screens back in 2013 and introduced the exceptional Shaun Evans as the titular detective, Endeavour Morse. It’s finally back for series 7, which whisks audiences back to the 1970s to reacquaint themselves with familiar faces, and of course, some notable newcomers…
