'Endeavour', the prequel to 'Morse', has been supplying plenty of in-jokes for Easter Egg hunters over its first two seasons.

The latest is the episode "Sway" which centered on Burridge's Department Store during an investigation.

Burridge's was first seen in "Trove", when Miss Great Britain, Diana Day, officiated at a ceremony at the store.

But its history goes farther back and out of the TV Universe in general as a matter of fact....

It was the location for a 1953 British comedy movie "Trouble In Store" which starred Norman Wisdom and Margaret Rutherford.

Wisdom played a stock clerk (also named Norman) who was always getting fired from his job.  "Trouble In Store" proved to be the second most popular movie at the British box office in 1954.

I don't think that's enough to warrant bringing the entire movie into Toobworld, but "Trouble In Store" and an alternate version of 'Endeavour' could be sharing one of the Borderlands.....

Just another example of Toobworld going to the movies.....
