Endeavour: Arcadia

Endeavour Inspector Morse
Roger Allam as DI Fred Thursday and Shaun Evans as Endeavour.

In the second episode of the third series of Endeavour, which dramatises the early career of Inspector Morse, a mysterious fire that killed an artist with links to political activists leaves the police baffled.

Also, Chief Supt Reginald Bright (Anton Lesser) finds himself short-staffed when a stomach bug puts most of his men on sick leave. The situation becomes more serious when a housewife dies of the same condition.

Endeavour (Shaun Evans) investigates a family-run supermarket, believing the infection may have stemmed from their stock being deliberately contaminated, and discovers dark secrets that may have a connection to the unexplained blaze.

Endeavour: Arcadia is scheduled for broadcast tonight (11 January) at 21.00 on itvCHOICE (DStv channel 123) with repeat showings on Tuesday 12 January at 00.50 and 12.20 and Sunday 17 January at 01.00 and 21.30.
