One of my more recently acquired fathers.
Detective Inspector Fred Thursday, acted by Roger Allam.
I love the way this man cares for others. He singles out and mentors those who need him. I love the way he champions the career of Endeavor Morse, who is brilliant and intuitive, but still has so many problems dealing with others, quite an outcast character. It reminds me a lot of myself. He is a wonderful father, husband, police officer, mentor, and human being.
Because the photos of the character all seem pretty grim I am including a photo of the actor where he is looking happier.
