“ENDEAVOUR” — Season 2 of this “Masterpiece Mystery!” series comes to a gripping finale as young Detective Constable Endeavour Morse (Shaun Evans) investigates two cases that, initially, seem to be unconnected: the disappearance of a 10-year-old boy and the death of an investigative reporter. But as he and Thursday (Roger Allam) delve into the mysteries, they unearth police corruption and misconduct that extends into the upper echelons of Oxford society. 8 tonight, PBS.
