Crossover TV Episode: Muse


In this episode of Endeavour set in April 1968, Endeavour Morse, who has been promoted to Detective Sergeant, refuses to believe in the existence of an international thief called the Shadow, saying “It’s all a bit Simon Templar.” Among the items the Shadow is reputed to have stolen is the Lugash Diamond. The artist’s model whose murder Morse is investigating once posed for painter Gerard Pickman. Simon Templar is Leslie Charteris’ “laughing Robin Hood of crime,” the Saint. The Lugash Diamond is the titular gem from the movie The Pink Panther and its sequels. Gerard Pickman may be a relative of painter Richard Upton Pickman from H. P. Lovecraft’s “Pickman’s Model.”

This crossover is one of hundreds covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, which will be published by Meteor House! All three volumes are AUTHORIZED companions to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
