Endeavour Story - Persuasion by matureskinsfan reviews
I'm having a go at writing an Endeavour story. It's one of my favourite TV programmes, I love all the characters and I hope I will enjoy the challenge of bringing them to life in these pages. I have set my story somewhere in Series 5 though I have changed one or two things, so it is not 100% accurate in terms of the plotlines in that series. Hope you enjoy it and PLEASE REVIEW!

A tour guide in the midst of her scripts is asked about what was known of Matthew and Mary's romance, since monuments to the two strongly suggest a strong bond.

Duty reviews
'Just ask.' He smiled a warm smile. 'Anything' She asked again, even more amused. He nodded seriously. 'You could come at the station's party tonight.' 'You mean the Cowley Station's annual charity funds raising' He couldn't believe his ears.
