‘Endeavour’ Season 9 Episode 2 recap: What happened in ‘Uniform’?

The last ever season of Endeavour continued in the UK tonight!

Set in the early ’70s, Season 9 finds Endeavour and Thursday entering a new era of change both professionally and personally with the return of some familiar faces along the way including Sam, played by Jack Bannon (Pennyworth), who arrives back from Northern Ireland following his service in the British Army.

Also returning are Anton Lesser (Killing Eve) as CS Reginald Bright, Sean Rigby (Gunpowder) as DS Jim Strange, James Bradshaw (Close to The Enemy) as Dr Max DeBryn, Abigail Thaw (Miss Scarlet and the Duke) as Dorothea Frazil, Caroline O’Neill (The A Word) as Win Thursday, and Sara Vickers (Watchmen) as Joan Thursday.
