Before Inspector Morse, there was the rookie Constable Morse, fed up with police work and ready to nip his career in the bud by handing in his resignation. That is, until a murder turned up that only he could solve. Shaun Evans (The Take, The Virgin Queen) stars as the young Endeavour Morse, before his signature red Jaguar but with his deductive powers already running in high gear.
The discovery of a 2,000 year-old body reveals a new lead in a missing person case. Endeavour and Thursday must investigate the eerie village of Bramford where nature is pitted against man, and pagan rites hide nuclear mysteries.
