The last ever series of Endeavour continues this week with episode 2, entitled Uniform, and viewers will most certainly recognise the guest cast.

In the penultimate episode, Morse suspects a connection between a woman’s disappearance and her past employer…

But another missing persons case demands his attention in the form of a notable artist, whose work adorns the covers of a series of paperback mysteries.

Meanwhile, a debauched group of university undergraduates wreak havoc as reports of stolen cars and wanton criminal damage flood in…

However, the real plot reintroduces one of the show’s earliest and most dramatic unresolved cases – the Blenheim Vale child abuse scandal cover-up explored in series 2 episode Neverland.

Here’s everything you need to know about the cast of Endeavour episode 2 Uniform.
