PBS Distribution is bringing the sixth season of the British crime drama Endeavour home next week.
Endeavour: Season 6 is scheduled for release July 9 on DVD and Blu-ray. Shaun Evans returns as the series’ titular character Endeavour Morse alongside co-star Roger Allman, who portrays Detective Inspector Fred Thursday for four more episodes of murder and mystery.
Season Six picks up right where Season Five left off. The Oxford City Police Department has been dissolved and combined with the Thames Valley Constabulary. Detective Constable George Fancy remains in the minds of everybody from the Oxford City Police Department, even as the longtime friends and co-workers are all filling new roles in the new merger of departments.
In the season premiere — “Pylon” — Morse is back in uniform, working a quiet, rural region of Oxford when he discovers the body of a missing schoolgirl. Problems within the Castle Gate CID leave Endeavour to take the lead on the case and prove the innocence of a teenage suspect and find the girl’s real killer.
Episode Two — “Apollo: — is Evans’ directorial debut. The story in this episode ties the impending Apollo 11 mission to the death of a young astrophysicist and his girlfriend. The couple’s death in a car accident seems at first, to be completely accidental. However, a deeper investigation leads to the suspicion of foul play. In turn, Morse must get Thursday’s help to investigate and solve the case.
In Episode Three — “Confection” — Morse investigates the death of a successful chocolate factory owner. The investigation leads Morse to connect the confectioner’s death to another murder — that of a young, single mother.
The season finale — “Duguello” — centers on the death of a librarian, leaving Morse and Thursday to become their own Holmes and Watson. All the pair has to go on in their investigation is a pair of muddy boot prints. Morse’s investigation leads to an unlikely suspect.
Endeavour: Season 6 will retail for MSRP of $39.99 on DVD and $49.99 on Blu-ray. the DVD can be pre-ordered now at a reduced price of $34.99 and the Blu-ray at a reduced price of $44.99 via PBS’ online store. More information on Endeavour is available online now at:
