Call the Midwife has finished, so it's over to a young Inspector Morse to give Sunday night television fans something to look forward to.

Endeavour returns for a second series on March 30, following a young Morse cutting his teeth with the police in the 1960s.

Morse was, of course, made famous by John Thaw as the fully-fledged no-nonsense inspector investigating Oxford's seemingly never-ending run of murders.

Endeavour, named after the inspector's rarely uttered first name, was well received first time around and there are high hopes for it will enjoy similar success this time.

Endeavour follows a young detective Endeavour Morse and his partner Detective Inspector Fred Thursday as the investigate various crimes in the 1960′s. The series is produced by Mammoth Screen & Masterpiece and stars Shaun Evans as Morse, Roger Allam as Detective Inspector Fred Thursday, James Bradshaw as Dr Max Debryn and Abigail Thaw as Dorothea Frazil.

“1966 brings Endeavour a fresh quartet of baffling mysteries set to test his brain and body to breaking point”, said writer Russell Lewis.

“Though offset by the possibility of love unlooked for, against a backdrop of growing change in Britain and the wider world, Endeavour must face a challenge that threatens to take from him all he holds dear. Family. Friends. Colleagues. The old order changeth, but not without a fight. To the death.”

What do you think of the show? Are you eagerly awaiting its return?
