"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.

Inspector Barnaby is my preferred English detective on TV. He's whimsical, a family man and dosen't let any clue pass him by. Too bad he always has to tell his sidekick what to do. Oh well, c'est la vie!

This one is a great beginning to a series that let Inspector Barnaby age over the years and even retire and let his cousin take over. The first mystery is great with supernatural and historical overtones.

I have all the Midsomer Murder sets and have pre-ordered Set 22, so I gave this set to my brother as a late Christmas present. Cried in Set 20 when CI Tom Barnaby retired. Have watched him a long time. However, I also like the actor replacing him. Hope he will be as good as Tom was at solving crimes in Midsomer.

It has been 4 years since A&E stopped running the series. I enjoyed it back then and was glad to see you carried it in your inventory. We viewed the first DVD Saturday night. My girlfriend does not like violence but enjoys a good mysteries. She was pleased that the programing offered mystery without all the blood.
