Endeavour had us hooked from its very first season in 2013, and fans are thrilled to see it’s back on our screens.
The ITV detective drama series stars Shaun Evans as Endeavour Morse, Roger Allam as Fred Thursday, and Anton Lesser as Chief Superintendent Bright.
But one actor from the show’s newest series has had an acting career that may come as a bit of a surprise to some.
Lewis MacLeod, who plays Eamonn Andrews in the show, has previously done some very notable voice work.
Get ready for a hit of nostalgia, because Lewis actually voiced Postman Pat from 2008 all the way to 2017.
That’s right, the 51-year-old actor was the voice of the nation’s favourite postman for nine years – kids may have watched him in action daily.
Some of Lewis’ other acting endeavours (pardon the pun) are just as surprising.
In 2006, he voiced Dumbledore. (Okay, not actual Dumbledore, but he voiced him in the Harry Potter video game.)
He also appeared in Netflix’s The Crown in 2017 and narrated Channel 4’s The IT Crowd in 2008.
MacLeod now lives in London with his two daughters.

To the outcry of fans, Endeavour faced coronavirus-related problems around the end of last year, and viewers were warned they might have to wait a little longer than they thought for the newest series.
Writer Russell Lewis said to the Radio Times of the news: “The hiatus in production may throw a spanner in the works in terms of the rather happy timeline in which we’ve found ourselves across the past four series.”
He continued: “But we shall cross that frayed rope bridge over crocodile-infested waters when we reach it.”
But the new season will welcome back all our old friends from the show, in a short-but-sweet three parter.
