    I was around in the 60s, and I can assure you that reds were just as red, blues were just as blue, and yellows were just as yellow, then, as they are in 2013; not de-saturated as depicted in that show clip.

    Any Art Directors who need to de-saturate or mess with the true colour pallet to ‘evoke a 60s feel’ are lacking in skills in my view, and therefore I won’t be watching.

    I can’t wait for this, it seems to have been so long in the making. The pilot movie was excellent in every way. It was wonderful seeing the character of Morse developing and it will be interesting to see it develop further over this series. My whole family are Morse fans, Lewis fans and Endeavour fans. We am already looking forward to series 2 lol. Bring it on:)
