Shaun Evans (The TakeThe Last WeekendSilk), whose portrayal of the cerebral and solitary Detective Constable Morse won over critics and viewers alike with his portrayal of young Inspector Morse in the first season of Endeavour, returns with four riveting new mysteries written by Inspector Lewis creator and Inspector Morse writer Russell Lewis.

In "Trove" (June 29), "Nocturne" (July 6), "Sway" (July 13), and "Neverland" (July 20), Endeavour Morse contends with the aftershocks of his terrifying brush with death as he conducts his dogged, incorruptible pursuit of justice from the shadows of Oxford and the fringes of the police force.

Vicious

Premiered June 29 at 10pm ET | LEARN MORE

Vicious tells the story of partners Freddie (Ian McKellen) and Stuart (Derek Jacobi), who have lived together in a small central London flat for nearly 50 years. Constantly picking each other apart and holding on to petty slights for decades, Freddie and Stuart are always at each other’s throats, cracking snide remarks aimed at the other’s age, appearance and flaws. However, underneath their vicious, co-dependent fighting, they have a deep love for one another. Freddie and Stuart are often joined by feisty best friend Violet (Frances de la TourHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) and Ash (Iwan Rheon, Game of Thrones), their young, upstairs neighbor.
