Episode 6 - Icarus
 
After the mysterious disappearance of a teacher, Endeavour finds himself undercover, investigating the dark and secret world of a public school. When a body is unexpectedly discovered, Endeavour has to question who he can trust - and uncover the truth about the crimes before more people are hurt.
 
Meanwhile, with news that Cowley Station is due to close, Thursday is determined to solve the ongoing unsolved murders linked to Eddie Nero, and charges Fancy with tracking down the elusive Cromwell Ames. But when the investigation ends in disaster, Cowley CID find a surprising link to Endeavour's investigation at the public school. In the shadow of the tragedy, Endeavour and Thursday find some unexpected answers to their cases.
 
Series overview
 
Set in 1968, the new series of ITV’s Inspector Morse prequel sees acclaimed actor Shaun Evans return as the recently promoted Detective Sergeant Endeavour Morse.
 
With each film once again written by series creator Russell Lewis, the new series begins with Morse having finally passed his Sergeant’s exams just as Oxford City Police merges into Thames Valley Constabulary creating uncertainty for everyone at Cowley CID. And despite Joan Thursday (Sara Vickers) return to Oxford, much also remains unresolved following her disappearance the previous year and Endeavour’s unexpected proposal.
 
Also returning will be Roger Allam (The Missing) as Detective Chief Inspector Fred Thursday, Anton Lesser (The Crown) as Chief Superintendent Reginald Bright, Dakota Blue Richards (Skins) as WPC Shirley Trewlove, Sean Rigby (Gunpowder) as Sergeant Jim Strange, James Bradshaw (Primeval) as Dr. Max DeBryn, Caroline O'Neil (Last Tango In Halifax) as Win Thursday and Abigail Thaw (I Want My Wife Back) as Dorothea Frazil. The series also sees the arrival of new recruit Detective Constable George Fancy, played by Lewis Peek (Poldark), whom Morse is reluctantly tasked with mentoring.
 
Other names who guest star in the upcoming series include Donald Sumpter (Game Of Thrones), Phil Daniels (New Tricks), Emma Rigby (Prisoners’ Wives), Steve Elder (Apple Tree Yard) and Robin Weaver (Call The Midwife).
 
The new films have been executive produced by Russell Lewis, alongside former Endeavour producer Tom Mullens, Mammoth Screen’s Managing Director Damien Timmer and Rebecca Eaton for WGBH. John Phillips (Stan Lee’s Lucky Man) and Neil Duncan (Fortitude) have produced the new series.
