Who is in the cast of Endeavour?

Shaun Evans

Shaun Evans, 41, is known for his roles in Teachers, Being Julia, Ashes to Ashes, Whitechapel and The Scandalous Lady W.

He most recently joined the cast of BBC drama Vigil.

He dated singer Andrea Corr for four years after they met on the set of the film The Boys From County Clare – but they broke up in 2007.

Since then, he has kept his private life under wraps, once telling Ox in a Box: "[Endeavour has] little impact on my life which I like because I’m not a person who has a public persona, or a profile on social media. I just like to do my job and then go home and carry on with my life."

In tonight's episode, the first of the show's fifth season, he will reprise his role as Endeavour Morse, noted for his Jaguar car, love for beer and passion for music, literature and art.

Roger Allam

Roger is best known for his roles as Illyrio Mopatis in the HBO series Game of Thrones, Royalton in Speed Racer, Lewis Prothero and as Peter Mannion MP in The Thick Of It.

He is 67 and has two sons – actor William and Thomas – with wife Rebecca Saire (who even appeared in the Endeavour's seventh series along with William as a mother and son duo).

In Endeavour, Roger will reprise his role as Morse's senior officer, Detective Inspector Fred Thursday.

He is a friend and a mentor to Shaun's Endeavour Morse.

In Endeavour, James will play Home Office pathologist Dr Max DeBryn.

In Endeavour, Rigby, 28, takes on the role of Jim Strange, who appears as a Police Constable and Detective Sergeant.

London-born Abigail is a well-known face on the box as her TV career kicked-off in 1990.

Her credits include The Bill, Casualty, Pie in the Sky, Peak Practice, Spywatch, Big Bad World, Vanity Fair, Love Soup and Trust.

She has also appeared in Midsomer Murders episode Small Mercies as Annabel Johnson in 2009, and in Agatha Christie’s Poirot The Clocks, in the same year.
