A TOUCH of the 1960s hit Oxford’s streets yesterday as filming continued for the second series of Endeavour.

Parts of central Oxford were out of bounds to visitors as Endeavour Morse, played by Shaun Evans, and Roger Allam, who plays Detective Inspector Fred Thursday, shot scenes for the Morse prequel.

The second series, set in the 1960s, will be made up of four two-hour episodes by screenwriter Russell Lewis.

Vintage police cars and ambulances were spotted by passers-by as filming continued into the night.

The ITV series was being filmed in places such as Merton Street, King Edward Street, and in the evening at Oriel Square.

In September, scenes of a falling man were shot at an Oxford college in Brasenose Lane.

Merton College lodge porter Tony Richardson said: “They turned up around 10am and they have been going to a variety of different venues.

“Outside here there have been old police cars racing up and down. There have been a lot of old cars in the street.”

It is thought filming will continue in the city centre today.
