Usually have to bump several DVR-programed shows ahead to view Masterpiece 1-1/2-hour dramas on Sunday. Worth it most of time because the writing, acting, and directing stand out from typical TV fare. Endeavour's girls school murder mystery this week was another outstanding show. Maybe Endeavour's noobie status early in the series, with dissing from superiors and others, makes him more interesting than the grumpy future Morse. Recall DCI Jane Tennison had a similar sympathy element early in the long-running Prime Suspect series on PBS. -- John
