Endeavour: Russel Lewis is too sensational with the script whereas Colin Dexter was always far more subtle and kept our interest to the end
Is Colin Dexter still involved, do you still get his blessing for your stories and/or the films? Has he seen S4? How is he?

Another excellent love the way Colin Dexter still pops up!
Colin Dexter's cameos are less subtle in than in Morse. That aside, a 1960s dept store would NOT have misspelt "instalments"!
Endeavour - I think John Thaw will be looking down with a smile of approval. Even Colin Dexter has a cameo. Brilliant show.
Hats off to Colin Dexter Endeavor was bloody brilliant tonight

How much do I love Colin Dexter's wonderful creation of Morse? Endeavour is just superb
Colin Dexter's ban on future versions of Morse ruins my idea for Morse's brain wired into a Jag. Think Knightrider meets My Mother the Car.

First anyone who knows me, Lyn Bennett Wilson, knows that I am a mystery buff. (mystery fanatic really) I cut my teeth on Sherlock Holmes and Edgar Allan Poe when I was at the age of 14. I could not get enough of mystery stories or mystery series. Because of my chosen occupation, that of fiber artist, I watch a lot of mystery series. I would like to recommend PBS Masterpiece Mystery “Endeavour” to the readers of “Movie Whimsey”. It is a very well done series. I watched the first series from start to finish in snowy, cold, winter days. It is a thoroughly engaging TV program. As the Brits say; a “cracking” great mystery, with thoughtful plot lines. Not overwrought with emotion, treats the viewer as someone with a brain not just a stuffed potato. Endeavour is the story of the young “Inspector Morse” a series based on the books written by Colin Dexter. It is true to the original work and leads the viewer carefully through how the irascible “Morse” came into being. How his love of ...

Endeavour is a television detective series which is a prequel to the long-running adaptation of Colin Dexter's Inspector Morse novels. Endeavour is produced by Mammoth Screen and Masterpiece for ITV Studios.
A lovely bit of self-indulgence: watching episode 23 of the BBC's Inspector Morse (starring as lead) the late, great John Thaw & his right hand man, Sgt. Lewis (Kevin Whately, whom Morse fans will know to have his own series currently). The beauty of this specific episode ( & they are all beautiful, 1way or another) is that it is set in Italy. I am honored to belong to a group of Morse, Lewis, & now, from the latest offering to originate from Colin Dexter's novels, Endeavour (a prequel, no less) fans. Not only does this episode afford me Oxford scenic vistas that I've come to relish, but its Italian counterparts as well. Chief Inspector Endeavour Morse of the Thames Valley Police, purportedly cantankerous but equally as accomplished. . . The thinking, the cultured person's detective.
Today is J.R.R. Tolkiens birthday, he was born in 1892. Not to far from Banbury Road in North Oxford, where I lived for six years, is Wolvercote Cementry, where Tolkien among others are buried. This cementry also plays a role in many of the books and films about Inspector Morse, (the author Colin Dexter was my neighbour (One of his books was called 'Death is now my neighbour' incidentally). Other notables resting there are philosophers Isaiah Berlin and H.L.A. Hart. When I was a student there, I visited the place occassionally. At that time Tolkien was not the highest-earning dead author in Britain. His very unassuming gravestone was littered with cigarette ends and inscriptions, and did not get much attention from the public apparently.

May 3, 2012 - A single nuclear weapon has “gone missing” as of last week, one of four missing but this one “more missing” than the other folks.

I can't tell if I'm feeling stressed or just watching too much Dexter. I'll mull it over during the next episode.
Well Big Brother... That "Big Secret" was positively rotten to say the least!! Regurgitate something you have done LOADS before!! So let's hope Dexter and Gina go in and stir it right up!!
Whos good and reasonable priced at nails and lashes?
expect to hear abit of basshunter and Black is Back! at this house party tonight with people doing jumpstyle everywhere!
Dexter.last season and I am kinda disappointed. I think it's because I know its going to end and I dont want the end to be a big let down like the past epic shows.The Sopranos.Lost.Seinfeld.and the biggest.king of queens.
Two thoughts: 1. Collin Hanks must think I'm stalking him at all his exercise classes since I've seen him at Pilates and spin this week. 2. The two times I've sat down to eat today and turned on the tv, The Five Year Engagement has been on and I can't decide if I love it or if it depresses me.
Very productive day thanks to Denise Collum and gran and grandad Purves for giving me an almost Ava free day met baby dexter this morning who is just so sweet and tinny made homemade fish cakes for tea thanks to Jamie Blackie for the fish supply, changed the bed finished some ironing then packed my hospital bag!! All set now :)
Colin Hanks and wife have welcomed their second child.
Previous cast members join the current cast to reminisce about Dexter.
Me too. I do like how Colin Dexter has kept referring to him though. Also, Colin's cameo roles in the episodes :~)
Was still watching the brilliant season 5 Breaking Bad way past 3am ..slow later than usual time of starting the day ..time to wake up and go for the morning run .Enjoy the day friends .
Finished up my S08E01 review on Dexter and went through way too many gifs of Jennifer Carpenter.
I don't know where they're going with the final season of Dexter, but as usual, I don't like it.
I really love Lewis and Morse, call me a nerd but Colin Dexter is brilliant
Watching Dexter... Sorry Ted couldn't wait for you. Mike Neil
John Lithgow, Julie Benz, Colin Hanks, Jaime Murray, Christian Camargo and Erik King join the current cast to reminisce about Dexter.
They say imitation is the best form of flattery, and so fans of ITV's detective show Lewis will appreciate the final nod to it's predecessor Inspector Morse.
In the Inspector Lewis Series 6 finale, Intelligent Design, as seen on PBS's Masterpiece Mystery, the hit-and-run of a brilliant biochemist is actually a hit-and-murder, and Lewis and Hathaway must find out who was behind the wheel.
Happy Birthhday, Dennis. Enjoy your special day ... and may you have many more happy, healthy years ahead!!
SPORT Warriors make Buffaloes pay for clutch mistakes Last Updated on 01 July 2013 By HS Manjunath In an exciting finish that stretched right down to the wire, Extra Joss Warriors nudged out Post Buffaloes 57-53 in a Cambodian Basketball League encounter at the Beeline Arena on Saturday. It was a see-sawing battle all along with the lead changing hands frequently, but poor field goal scoring rates from both sides led to a mad rush in the last few minutes of the final quarter. With a minute to go, the Buffaloes lost the ball twice in succession and, as if to punish them for those errors, Fred Babida produced two lay ups to give the Warriors a decisive advantage. Yet, it wasn’t all lost for the Buffaloes even at that late stage. Tino Pheng was fouled on his three-point attempt. The ball went in and the basket was counted. Pheng also clicked with a bonus free throw and the Buffaloes were as close as 53-54 with 30 seconds left on the clock. The full court press that the Buffaloes deployed got them a steal . ...
Sitting on the couch watching boy meets world with Wayne and Maggie is laying between us!!!
Not sure I actually enjoy this season of Dexter's plot twist. It had to end somehow, but this is just another stretch. Should have just deleted last season and kept Colin Hanks on and stretched it out that way.
TV SHOW DEXTER--DEBRA MORGAN--played by JENNIFER CARPENTER: This series- for years good at times brilliant (but not lately) has ruined one of, if not THE most, interesting female character in the history of television. The brilliant JENNIFER CARPENTER (who should win an Emmy for her Season 8, Episode 1 performance) makes you BELIEVE and FEEL everything. Tonight she was otherworldly, and demonstrated that great actors can sometimes overcome mediocre or even poor writing. The writing staff has gone crazy with her character over the last 1.5 seasons. They've given her such preposterous character choices and situations, because they've written themselves into story corners they can't get out of. So they've sacrificed the truth of her character, in an attempt to keep the show going. And while that may serve the studios and showtime, and keep the machine operating, I don't think it serves the truth of the characters that Jeff Lyndsey has created, don't think it serves the fans, either--better to go out on top a ...
So The Wire taught me that Dexter talks on the phone too much and Game of Thrones taught me Murder has a bigger impact when it doesn't happen every week.
