Endeavour Morse's 1959 Jaguar Mk I

IMG_0496 IMG_0450 Shaun Evans & Jag

A Jaguar set against the backdrop of Oxford's majestic spires once again became a familiar sight on our TV screens.  But this time instead of a red Mk 2, Endeavour Morse's set of wheels was my black Jaguar Mk 1!

 

Actor, Shaun Evans, who played the lead role, took to driving UFF 325 like a duck to water.  

 

Filming was in Uxbridge, Rickmansworth and Wargrave and of course Oxford - long days, up to 13 hours at a time!

 

There were no major issues whilst filming, only to make the car look less shiny - this was achieved by spraying with lots of Pledge polish and a mix of dust and water - much to my dismay; it took ages to clean off!
