Not a whole lot is known about Season 7 other than it being set in 1970… since, well, each new season takes place in a new year. Writer Russell Lewis has teased that it will have a lot to do with murder sprees in the Oxford region during the 70s. Even the state of Morse’s moustache makes for hot debate, hints Shaun: “Will it or won’t it be back? It warms your top lip, if nothing else. It was Russell’s idea, not mine…”
Something else that could change during the season is the state of Morse’s connection with his frenemy boss Detective Inspector Fred Thursday (Roger Allam), because Thursday somewhat disappears and doesn’t factor at all in the later series of novels by Colin Dexter that the show is based on.
“He is an invention of some sorts for Endeavour. So, we have to make a decision as to why that is. It will be interesting because there is a bit of conflict…” hints Shaun as he prepares for a new season of sleuthing.
