Endeavour: #18 – S05 E01 – Muse


April 1968. Ex-boxer Joey Sikes is killed on the night of a failed theft of the last Fabergé egg from the Oxford college where it is to be auctioned. Next day lecturer Robin Grey is also murdered and the link is prostitute and artists’ model Eve Thorne, who was seen with both men. When the egg is stolen, suspicion falls on another of Eve’s clients, latest victim Simon Lake. Morse, now a detective sergeant, discovers that Lake and Grey belonged to an elite club and were involved in a scam regarding the egg. In establishing whether the murders were linked to the club or the egg Morse must cope with a lazy new constable and the reappearance of Joan Thursday. As the episode closes, radio news announces the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King Jr. in the US. Note: First appearance of Lewis Peek as DC George Fancy.
