"Like an old friend or a fine wine."  
Five Stars - Betty from TX

Homicide, blackmail, greed, and betrayal: just a taste of what goes on behind the well-trimmed hedges of Midsomer County.  Inspired by the novels of Caroline Graham, "the best detective writer since Agatha Christie" (Sunday Times, UK), this British series is deliciously sinister and darkly humorous.
 

The Killings at Badger's Drift
An elderly woman's death draws Barnaby into a case that reveals the sordid side of a quaint village.


Written in Blood
Investigating the brutal murder of a writer, Barnaby discovers that the victim had led a fictitious life.


Death of a Hollow Man
Barnaby and his family take part in an amateur theatrical production that provides an abundance of real-life drama.


Faithful unto Death
When the wife of a wealthy local businessman disappears, Barnaby finds a complex web of financial and romantic entanglements.


Death in Disguise
Barnaby investigates a string of deaths at a local New Age commune.

I accidentally discovered the wonderful mystery programs on Masterpiece Theatre. I've always enjoyed the English style - countryside and John Nettles character is very likable. I like that the show com ones both family life and murder mystery.

This is a good who done it. I like that the main person is happily married. Has a daughter and seems to have it together in a normal way. Most mysteries the main character is a drug and drunk and a person you wouldn't want to know. That is what makes Midsomer's so good, you want to get to know the people in the stories.

Love this whole series.

We very much enjoy mysteries and Midsomer Murders represent some of the best. We also the wonderful set locations in the neighborhoods. The old thatched cottages and the gardens with the narrow winding roads just help to make the settings interesting and different.

I enjoy watching MM and figured my sister would enjoy it also. So I bought it for her since I have seen most or all of the video. Working now on seasons 22,23 and I believe 24(?). The ones that are now including Tom's cousin John. Next is Poirot. Another winner along with Miss Marple.

I am so pleased with Series 1. I had not seen the episodes shown before and am glad I now own them. I started watching Midsomer Murders late in the series' run but I immediately was enthralled by the wonderful cast of regular characters the great looking landscapes and the writing. The best television series I have ever come across. I am in the process of buying all of the episodes so that I may have them to watch again and again as I wish. Thank you for this pleasure you have brought to my life.

Nice to own these and pop them in whenever I like. Delivery was free but a little slow. Customer service excellent as always.

Each episode is about 1 hour and 45 minutes long and well crafted. The picturesque English villages form an interesting back-drop and contrasting theme to mayhem and murder. Too bad these series aren't on American prime time TV as they are head and shoulders above anything we have on American TV.
