He stars as the young Inspector Morse in the ITV drama Endeavour.
And Shaun Evans looked ready for action as he began filming for the highly-anticipated seventh series of the detective series set in Oxford on Sunday.
The actor, 39, sported a dapper appearance in a slick black tuxedo which boasted satin detailing as he immersed himself into the unfolding drama on set.
Shaun teamed his suave ensemble with a stylish bow tie and a pair of polished black shoes.
The star appeared calm and focused as he stood in the middle of a street before falling to the ground as the drama ensued.
The dramatic TV show, which is set in the 1960s, follows the adventures of a young Endeavour Morse after he transfers to the Oxford City Police following a double-murder investigation.
The last series saw Endeavour, who had now worked his way up to the position of DS, try to re-establish his relationship with the daughter of his colleague Fred Thursday, Joan, while also trying to put down roots in Oxford.
Now in its seventh series, the drama will see Endeavour reprise his position as a member of Castle Gate CID in an new era marked by the beginning of the women's liberation movement, social progression and scientific growth.
The first episode, which begins on New Year's Eve 1970, will see Endeavour's Castle Gate CID team called into action when a body is discovered at a canal towpath.
With very few clues to help him, viewers will be left on the edge of their seats as Endeavour is tested to breaking point both personally and professionally while trying to uncover the killer.
Also reprising their roles for the upcoming drama will be Roger Allam, who stars as DCI Fred Thursday and Anton Lesser who plays CS Reginald Bright.
Speaking about the new series writer Russell Lewis said: 'The prospect of Colin Dexter's immortal creation entering a new decade is hugely exciting for all of #TeamEndeavour.
'We're always looking to break new ground, and go places we haven't been before - both physically and emotionally.
