In July, ITV announced the surprise and released a first-look image of a contemplative Morse and a solemn-looking Thursday in Endeavour season 8.
Endeavour season 8 Cast
The cast ensemble of season 8 includes the primary leads Shaun Evans (Endeavour Morse) and Roger Allam (Fred Thursday), along with the new-old entry of Sara Vickers (Joan Thursday). Sara hasn’t been seen in season 7 of Endeavour but hopefully returns for season 8. The other secondary characters of the cast include Sean Rigby in the role of Detective Sergeant Jim Strange, Anton Lesser playing the role of Chief Superintendent Reginald, Abigail Thaw in the role of journalist Dorothea.
Season 7 blurb
The fatalities on the towpath have been the focus of season 7 of Endeavour, and the climax is no exception. Bridget, Win’s friend, was slain, and whoever did it tried to swallow her blood. Unsurprisingly, Thursday views this personally, though he might have rescued her if he hadn’t abandoned his towpath inspections.
