Celebration of Christmas
Shaun was in Oxford on Friday to do his part for Macmillan in the Celebration of Christmas at Christ Church Cathedral.
Shaun has been busy lately doing some artwork. A book has recently been released thats is full of artwork done by people from Liverpool. Shaun’s lovely artwork it looks painted is called The Mersey. I hope you’ll all like.
Very exciting news. We’ve started to see photos of Endeavour with his new look.
This is brilliant news. It will be Endeavour Series 6. It’s all good. Hopefully we’ll find out the reasons behind DC Fancy’s murder.
Endeavour Series 5 now in production
This fab detective drama is now in production and I went along to Oxford to see film 1 being filmed. It was fab to see Shaun again. I took a few photos when there wasn’t a filming screen in the way.
Shaun’s New Role
Shaun is to take up a new role as a director for the BBC drama Casualty. He has already done some work on the production side of things being an associate producer for Endeavour. It is very exciting as it is one of my other favourite TV dramas. It will be very interesting to see his style.
Endeavour recommissioned for series 5
Endeavour Series 5 has been commissioned. This series will have 6 episodes. We will see Endeavour as a sergeant as he became one from the Queen for all of his good work he has done.
Endeavour series 4 in production
Endeavour series 4 is in production. Filming in lovely oxford is now complete and I was lucky enough to go to Oxford on a lot of the filming days there.
It’s very exciting and the stories that were outlined on the press office documents all look like they are going to be fab.
Here is my Endeavour 4 page where I’ve been able to post about my Endeavour adventures seeing some filming and talking to the lovely Shaun too.
A nice interview with Shaun on the run up to Endeavour series 3 starting. It is very informative. A good read!

Endeavour filming at the Museum of Natural History
Fab article by Rachel Parle – Education Officer
A closed museum makes for an intriguing film set. Wrapped skeletons, shadowy corridors and empty echoing spaces create the perfect atmosphere for a mystery.
This week we’ve had the cast and crew of the ITV1 detective series Endeavour filming in the Museum. Endeavour is a prequel to Inspector Morse, the famous Oxford-based series that ran for 13 years. Production company Mammoth Screen are currently making the second series of Endeavour, which stars Shaun Evans as the young Morse making his name as a detective.
Endeavour is set in the 1960s so, to achieve an authentic period look, preparations by the production team started in the Museum last week. Skeletons that were covered in plastic and foam were given a retro make-over with canvas draping, and modern displays were temporarily replaced by ’60s style versions.
At the end of the day on Monday, I was lucky enough to bump into the star of the show, young Endeavour Morse himself, played by Shaun Evans. Shaun was exploring the Museum after closing, during a break in filming. He had never visited the Museum before, so enjoyed the opportunity to see if without the crowds. Shaun was very friendly and enthusiastic about the beautiful architecture so we suggested he comes back when we re-open to see the building in its full glory.
Filming location: Museum of Natural History, Oxford

Good News! ITV recommissions Endeavour for a second series
Starring Shaun Evans and Roger Allam produced by Mammoth Screen
ITV’s critically acclaimed crime drama, Endeavour, will return for a second series following the phenomenal success of the first series starring Shaun Evans and Roger Allam.
As a prequel to the much-admired Inspector Morse, Endeavour debuted in 2012 with a feature length story to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Morse. Consequently, this one off became the highest performing new drama title to air on ITV that year.
With Shaun Evans (The Take, The last Weekend) in the lead role of young Morse, Roger Allam (The Thick of It, Parade’s End, Game of Thrones) as Detective Inspector Fred Thursday, and written by Russell Lewis, who wrote for Morse and devised Lewis, the drama instantly became a hit with viewers and critics who acknowledged the high production values and beautifully crafted stories inspired by the character created by acclaimed novelist Colin Dexter, whose first Morse story was published in 1975. Colin continues his association with the drama acting as a consultant to Endeavour producers, Mammoth Screen.
