Endeavour 5

In the new season, Shaun Evans returns as the recently promoted Detective Sergeant Endeavour Morse along with Roger Allam as Detective Chief Inspector Fred Thursday, with Poldark actor Lewis Peek joining the cast as new recruit Detective Constable George Fancy.

As 1968 dawns in Oxford, 1967's Summer of Love seems already a distant memory. Dark clouds are gathering as, after almost 100 years, the long history of Oxford City Police comes to an end, and the era of the shiny, modern Thames Valley Constabulary takes its place.

The winds of change blowing through 1968 promise to challenge the private and professional lives of Endeavour and his colleagues at Cowley Police Station.

For the newly-promoted Endeavour and Thursday, things are not as perfect as they might have hoped. While Endeavour's future stretches before him, he can't help but feel at a standstill in his personal life. For Thursday, the end of City Police raises questions about his future as a copper, and life after policing.

Fresh blood arrives in the shape of new recruit DC George Fancy and Endeavour finds himself a reluctant mentor - soon discovering they both have a lot to learn.

But crime waits for no man, and despite the personal and professional changes at Cowley, law and order still demands their attention.

An investigation into a missing Faberge egg leads to a violent serial killer, while a poisoning at a local cinema threatens to uncover a hidden past.

A body found at a disused railway station challenges Endeavour's detective skills, and a murder at an army barracks brings the investigation too close to home for Thursday.

An international festival uncovers secrets at the highest level and the mystery of a missing schoolmaster takes Endeavour on an undercover mission.

Meanwhile, the rise of organised crime threatens to change the landscape of Oxford forever, as a new criminal gang exerts its authority on the city.

By the time 1968 comes to a close, will things at Cowley Police Station ever be the same again?
