Endeavour: Oracle Season 7 Premieres Sun 9 Feb on ITV

endeavour_episode1_06

The latest series of critically-acclaimed drama, which is produced by leading drama indie Mammoth Screen – part of ITV Studios – in partnership with Masterpiece, will consist of three, brand new interconnecting feature-length films. Each film has once again been written by Russell Lewis who has penned all 27 Endeavour screenplays to date.

Shaun Evans reprises his role as DS Endeavour Morse, alongside Roger Allam as DCI Fred Thursday, for a new set of compelling cases. Following the success of his directorial debut on the drama during series six, Shaun Evans has also directed the first film of the new series.

In addition, Anton Lesser (Game Of Thrones) returns as CS Reginald Bright, Sean Rigby (Gunpowder) as DS Jim Strange, James Bradshaw (Close To The Enemy) as Dr Max DeBryn, Abigail Thaw (I Want My Wife Back) as Dorothea Frazil and Caroline O’Neill (Last Tango In Halifax) as Win Thursday.

The new trilogy of films mark Endeavour and his colleagues entering a new decade and era of change. Opening on New Year’s Eve 1969, normal order has been resumed and the team reunited at Castle Gate CID, with Chief Superintendent Bright back in charge.

However, the events of the past year have left their mark, and the new series will see old friendships challenged and new relationships blossom.

Film 1 – Oracle

As Endeavour sees in the new year – 1970 – at an opera house in Venice, a murder on an Oxford towpath speaks to Thursday’s intuition, and convinced he has the man responsible, he vows to bring him to justice. Returning home, Endeavour makes a new acquaintance, and old friendships show signs of strain.

Later, when an exciting new educational television programme appeals for Academic presenters, a contentious college project develops into a fatal battle of the sexes. On investigating, Endeavour and Thursday discover a potential link between the department and a young woman’s troubling premonitions.

Junior Bake Off | Channel 4 28 January 5:00pm
Episode 3

Cyber thriller from BAFTA-winning creator Peter Kosminsky that lifts the veil on the most urgent battle of our time. Set in 2024, The Undeclared War tracks a leading team of analysts buried in the heart of GCHQ, secretly working to ward off a series of cyber-attacks on the UK in the run-up to a general election. When a routine stress test of internet infrastructure goes awry, 21-year-old GCHQ intern Saara Parvin (Hannah Khalique-Brown) suddenly finds herself operating on the invisible frontier of high-stakes cyber warfare. In a thrilling cat-and-mouse game, Saara and the team at GCHQ must try to stay one step ahead and anticipate their opponents’ every hidden move. The clock is ticking as a battle with high stakes and unpredictable enemies takes place entirely online, with very real consequences. But how do you win a war that most of the public don’t know you’re fighting? Also starring Simon Pegg, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Adrian Lester, Alex Jennings, Mark Rylance and Kerry Godliman. In the third episode, Saara’s classmate Vadim Trusov (German Segal) returns to St Petersburg from university in London when Putin’s government tells all Russian students to leave the UK. He reluctantly starts work at Glavset, a covert organisation that uses social media to influence public opinion in Britain. There, Vadim meets Marina (Tinatin Dalakishvili), a single mother with her own reasons for working on the inside of the propaganda machine. Initially hostile, Marina and Vadim become closer, while Vadim becomes the victim of his own success at work and is drawn further into Russia’s cyber warfare efforts. The more he understands about what they might be planning, the more uneasy he grows – leading him to a risky stunt. Writer/Dir: Peter Kosminsky; Exec Prods: Peter Kosminsky, Colin Callender, Noëlette Buckley; Prod: Robert Jones; Prod Cos: Playground, Stonehenge Films and Universal International Studios for Channel 4 and Peacock.
