Disc 1

THE DARK RIDER

 

As two prominent families plan a reenactment of a Civil War battle between their ancestors, the aristocratic DeQuettevilles are haunted by a headless horseman, rumored to foretell the death of those who see him. Barnaby and Jones delve into historical rivalries and family feuds to expose the phantom rider and end the trail of carnage.

 

Disc 2

MURDER OF INNOCENCE

 

When convicted murderer Grady Felton returns to Midsomer after his incarceration for killing a young boy—Jones's first murder case—the whole town is set on edge. Felton seems to be out for revenge when his lawyer dies suspiciously, but he has a solid alibi. Then Felton himself is targeted. As the death toll mounts, can Barnaby and Jones discover the truth behind the killings?

 

Disc 3

DEATH AND THE DIVAS

 

A journalist writing a book about two sisters—one a Hollywood superstar, the other a failed actress—is murdered while watching a cult horror film starring one of them. As Midsomer Langley's film festival kicks off, more deaths follow, each imitating the sisters' horror films. The detectives dig up family secrets and bitter resentments as they race to prevent the killer's encore.

The earlier Midsommers may have been about murder, but they were light in tone and entertaining to watch. With the new Barnaby it's gotten much darker, violent, explicit and the themes are all too serious. I doubt we will even finish Set 22 - we don't want to see real suffering, after all.

I have been waiting to see the new Barnaby here in the U.S. for a long time and I am very disappointed. I watched the first episode on Acorn TV and may not be buying these. The solution was very obvious right from the beginning. Jones was seen to be unintelligent and dim. Barnaby is rude and unlikable. A let-down all around.

What a relief. I was afraid the new Barnaby would not fit in, but he did and the Midsomer is going along as great as always. I like the addition of a dog. My one dislike is why did we have to see Ben in the nude in the last story? I marked it off as unnecessary, but something the British seem to spring on you in their mysteries at unexpected moments. That scene could have been cut and no one would have missed it. Other than that, the new Barnaby, dog, and wife fit in quite nicely.

Set 21 of Midsomer Murders offers a wonderful and seamless transition from the old DCI (Tom) Barnaby to the new DCI (John) Barnaby. The mysteries are fresh and crisp, and the melding of the new Barnaby & (Sgt.) Jones team is both realistic and entertaining. Midsomer Murders marches on!

With 3 of the 4 episodes viewed, my fears have been put to rest! The new Barnaby character does not try to duplicate Tom, which is a wise move, but has his own style and personality. The story lines are as intriguing as those in the past, and I can only hope that I will be able to add 21 more sets to those I already treasure!

Disc 1

DEATH IN THE SLOW LANE

DCI John Barnaby’s relationship with his new partner, DS Ben Jones, is off to a rough start after the older detective belittles Jones’s enthusiasm for a local classic car show. When one of the show’s judges is found dead near a vintage car, the two detectives are forced to cooperate before the killer can strike again.

 

DARK SECRETS

After attempting to pay a visit to a reclusive couple, a social services investigator is found dead in a nearby creek. Barnaby and Jones race to unravel a series of long-standing secrets and scandals in order to find the killer. Meanwhile, Barnaby’s wife arrives in Causton, where she receives a less-than-enthusiastic welcome.


Disc 2

ECHOES OF THE DEAD

Newly single Dianne Price is discovered drowned in her bathtub and staged to look like a bride. When more murders follow, the detectives realize that the cases bear eerie similarities to notorious murders from the past. Barnaby and Jones race to catch the copycat killer before the body count rises further.

 

THE OBLONG MURDERS

Barnaby and Jones are called in to investigate when a member of the Oblong Foundation, a new-age cult, disappears. Jones must skip his vacation to go undercover among the cultists, and the detective soon learns of prior deaths that may not have been accidental.

Set 21 is a throwback to the best Midsomers. The last few seasons with John Nettles were pedestrian at best and I noticed the writer of the early seasons were not working on the show. Now they're back, and the humor is back, the little scenes that add to the village appeal, and finally there is some character development for Jones through tension between him and his new boss. I thought this series might die without John Nettles, but now I look forward to more.

Disc 1

MASTER CLASS

 

When world-famous pianist Sir Michael Fielding offers an audition-only master class in Midsomer, the competition is fierce. Introverted, anxious piano prodigy Zoe Stock wins a place in the class, but soon afterward witnesses a drowning that reminds Barnaby of a 20-year-old case. The detectives race to investigate a scandal from the past in order to prevent another death in the present.

 

 

Disc 2

THE NOBLE ART

 

When Midsomer Morchard resident John Kinsella wins an international boxing title, it seems that everyone in town is delighted with his success, especially wealthy landowner Gerald Farquaharson. However, the celebrations sour during a reenactment of a Victorian prizefight, which reveals a story of greed, resentments, and complex entanglements that threaten to turn deadly.

 

 

Disc 3

NOT IN MY BACK YARD

 

Maureen Stubbs of the Midsomer Conservation Society is aghast at a wealthy builder’s plans for a modern development in bucolic Pelfe Chase. After Stubbs is brutally murdered with a broken bottle, the detectives’ investigation reveals that she may have been responsible for a string of burglaries and vandalism targeting supporters of the development. When the project’s lead architect is found dead, Barnaby and Jones focus their suspicions on the conservation society—with surprising results.

 

 

Disc 4

FIT FOR MURDER

 

A relaxing weekend at the spa turns into yet another murder investigation when Joyce finds a body in the spa’s flotation chamber. The detectives discover several possible motives, including a feud between the spa’s owners and their neighbors and a mysterious manuscript. After solving the crime, Barnaby decides it’s time to pass the torch to his cousin, DCI John Barnaby.

What a marvelous place this series has created, a charming English county with eye pleasing villages inhabited by interesting, albeit occasionally homicidal personalities. The main character in the series from the beginning until this year has been Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby. Played by John Nettles, he is a comfortable guide through various episodes of human frailty and mayhem. We hope that the new main character, John Barnaby, played by Neil Dudgeon will prove as engaging. Speaking from the perspective of older viewers, we enjoy the experience so much that returning to watch favorite episodes is a pleasant way to spend a quiet afternoon. The plots have several layers and are complicated enough that one often forgets who the “killer” is between viewings. And part of the pleasure comes from spending time “visiting” with the characters and enjoying the beautiful countryside. In our way of thinking the creators of the program have been wise to avoid saddling the recurring characters with gritty per

I have a collection of all Poirot, Miss Marple, and a whole variet of other BBC films, but there is nothing more enjoyable than the Midsomer Murders. John Nettles is probably the greatest talent in all of BBC movies/series. John Nettles' character, Barnaby, is charming, he loves his wife and daughter, has high morals, and has a brilliant mind. I bought all three "Collections" and have waited so long for more Collections to come out, I'm resorting to purchasing all the individual sets to finish out the series.

However, Set 19 is the worst written, worst performed series season to date. Putting "Barnaby into a Wild West outfit complete with "handlebar mustache and toting two Colt revolvers was just too laughable. He is a very fine actor and deserved better lines and stage for his character than that given to him during Season Set 19. I now see why the series ended. After Series 19 it was time to end the misery. I may watch Season set 20 someday, but for now, I'll do the rerun bit from Season one through Season Set 18 for my third time in 4 years.

Disc 1
SMALL MERCIES
 
The village of Little Worthing prides itself on two tourist attractions: the annual boat race and an elaborate model village. Then the body of troublemaker Richard Tanner turns up bound on the model with string and pegs like a passage fromGulliver’s Travels. As Barnaby and Jones investigate, they discover that outsized passions swirled around the tiny figurines and that this model hamlet hides troubling personal histories.
 
Disc 2
THE CREEPER
A cat burglar called the Creeper stalks the homes of Causton, putting residents on high alert. But more than jewelry and electronics are at stake, as the long-held secrets of the aristocratic Chettham family start to come to light. The Chetthams have staved off financial ruin by selling their home to their friend Jack Filby. When a man is suffocated and his valuables stolen at a birthday party hosted by Filby, it seems the Creeper has turned killer. Barnaby receives unexpected aid to uncover the truth.
 
Disc 3
THE GREAT AND THE GOOD
Educator Connie Bishop faces a slew of troubles. A decline in pupils may close down her village school, and she herself suffers from night terrors. But has she been imagining an intruder in her home, or are her suspicions well founded? When a local politician dies in her garden, it confirms her worst fears. As Barnaby and Jones investigate, another man is murdered on Connie’s property. Is the sweet-natured schoolteacher a victim—or a killer?

Disc 1
The Dogleg Murders

A peaceful afternoon on the links turns fatal when a man is bludgeoned at the notoriously difficult 13th hole. The crime scene is a high-status local golf club that has long stirred up resentments between the moneyed members and villagers clamoring for a taste of luxury. Barnaby’s investigation sees him coping with haughty club members, sibling rivalry, and the icy Eileen Fountain—the club’s domineering manager.

Disc 2
The Black Book

When a painting by celebrated landscape artist Henry Hogson goes up for auction, art dealers descend upon the village. Local collectors are outraged when the work sells to an out-of-towner for a princely sum. Soon after, a brutal murderer begins targeting the Midsomer art world. Further complicating the case, the usually collected Barnaby becomes besotted with a pretty art teacher with a dubious past.

Disc 3
Secrets and Spies

Something is killing sheep in Midsomer Parva, and whispers abound that it’s the mysterious "beast of Midsomer." Meanwhile, Barnaby’s former career in espionage comes to light after he reluctantly agrees to officiate at a cricket match. The situation turns sinister when the beast moves on to human prey, leading Barnaby to believe that the killings are connected to a Cold War grudge.

Disc 4
The Glitch

Software magnate Clinton Finn funds the construction of a new building for a local school, but not everyone is impressed with his generosity. George Jeffers claims the air-traffic control program he created for Finn is defective and possibly deadly, but the millionaire American insists they press on with the lucrative product. After several people are killed, the detectives must discern who had the most to gain by withholding information about the faulty software.

Disc 1
Midsomer Life

Guy Sandys, owner and editor of Midsomer Life magazine, has made a name for himself by publishing unfavorable reviews of local businesses. When his ex-wife’s lover is found dead, the detectives are forced to dig into the editor’s past, where they find a tangled web of affairs, criminal associations, and blackmail. Things turn personal for Barnaby when Joyce gets involved, placing herself in great danger.

Disc 2
The Magician’s Nephew

Barnaby and Jones discover that Midsomer County is home to a secret pagan cult after one of its more prominent members is murdered. Suspicion initially falls on the author of a book alleging that the sect’s rituals are merely the product of drink and an overactive imagination. But soon it seems that all of the members of the Magic Circle have something to hide.

Disc 3
Days of Misrule

Barnaby and Jones attend an exasperating team-building exercise, run by a young and overly ambitious acting chief superintendent. They’re released from their misery after an explosion at a trucking company operated by one of the most hated men in Midsomer. The detectives soon realize that the intended victim had many enemies among the townswomen, including his own grandmother.

Disc 4
Talking to the Dead

Two couples living on the edge of Barton Woods disappear, leaving the village abuzz with rumors of supernatural causes. According to a local priest, the woods are haunted by the ghosts of monks slaughtered there in the 16th century. As the body count rises, a local psychic offers his services—much to Barnaby’s chagrin.

A Worthy Addition To The Series

The solutions in each case keep the viewer guessing, often right up until the last scenes. My wife and I enjoy trying to beat the detectives to the answers, and fail more often than not. The characters are well drawn, and familiar from season to season, and the inclusion of "name" actors adds verve to the series. John Nettles and Jane Wymark seem so comfortable in their roles as to be almost like a married couple. The writing and production are consistently top notch, and I cannot now recall any episode that stands out as repitious, or a copy of anything seen previously. We have enjoyed this series from its inception and are glad to know it will continue after "Barnaby" turns over his responsibilities to Neil Dudgeon at the end of 2011.

Shot at Dawn

A nine-decade rivalry between the Hammond and Hicks families turns violent after a dishonored soldier’s name is added to the World War I memorial in Midsomer Parva.

Already divided over the construction of a new overpass, the village of Dunstan is further shaken when psychic Lynne Fox discovers a reclusive couple brutally murdered in their home.

Death & Dust

Synopsis

David Mostyn is shocked to find his mother Delyth in bed with Dr James Kirkwood, senior partner in the Midsomer Market surgery. Delyth, a beautiful divorcee, is delighted when James uses the occasion to propose to her.

Her daughter Megan, James' practice manager, is equally outraged, especially when Delyth tells her they are planning to sell up and travel the world. James also has the difficult task of telling Dorothy Hutton, his late wife's mother, who is still grieving.

James asks his partner Alan Delaney to check on Dorothy later, lending him his brand new Range Rover for the journey. But when Alan has to leave the car during a storm, a pick-up truck drives into him at speed and kills him. Barnaby and Jones dig into Alan's past and discover that James once accused him of stealing £30,000 from the practice. But it was put down to clerical error and the two doctors made up.

Delyth puts her cottage up for sale as Barnaby brings in computer expert WPC Gail Stephens to trace the missing money. The detectives realise James may have been the real target and race to the surgery just in time to see a bucket of metal bolts thrown off scaffolding, narrowly missing the doctor's head.

During a walk with the Midsomer Ramblers, Dorothy confides her suspicions about Megan's lavish lifestyle. She is also worried that Alan helped hasten her daughter's death and James killed him to stop the truth coming out. Meanwhile David points the finger at Clifford Rawnsley, a pig farmer infatuated with Delyth.

The detectives travel to Snowdonia to see Bryn Williams, Delyth's friend and co-owner with her of Marchogwr Allt, a disused slate waste pile. They also visit her ex, Huw, a once violent man who recently suffered a stroke. He tells them David also called by, asking him for £250,000 for a business venture.

On the way back, WPC Stephens phones. Computer records show Megan used the money to buy cane furniture for David's shop and he shared the proceeds by buying her a sports car. But did they kill Alan or try to kill James?

As the Midsomer Ramblers gather in Snowdonia, Jones joins the trek to protect James from potential killers while Barnaby questions David about his financial misdeeds. But something David says makes Barnaby realise James is at risk from a person they never would have suspected &ldots; just as Jones realises the doctor has disappeared from the mountain path.


A Picture of Innocence

Synopsis

Rivalry between traditional film photographers and digital camera fans in the village of Luxton Deeping reaches fever pitch at the annual photographic society exhibition when snapper Steve Bright threatens black and white film enthusiast Lionel Bell.

During the private viewing, Joyce is shocked to see a print on the wall showing Barnaby caught in a passionate embrace with another woman - Marion Bell, Lionel's wife, who left him to live in Spain.

Photographer Headley Madrigal says the image has been digitally manipulated - its two shots put together. Joyce assumes it's a criminal getting revenge, then Barnaby admits he had a brief relationship with Marion 30 years ago.

Lionel is photographing his favourite oak trees in Luxton Wood when he is strangled with the cord from his light meter. A memory card from a digital camera is found in his mouth.

Police discover Lionel shared a bottle of wine with a visitor the night before he died, but according to his diary it was DCI Barnaby. Then the detective's fingerprints are found on a wine glass at Lionel's home.

Barnaby realises someone must have taken his wine glass from the exhibition to frame him but he is taken off the investigation and replaced by irritating bureaucrat Martin Spellman, who spends most of his time planning his forthcoming wedding.

The memory card reveals glamour shots of a blonde woman. Before Jones can question Steve Bright about it, he too is strangled. This time, a roll of black and white film is found in his mouth containing more images of the mystery woman.

Behind Spellman's back, Barnaby visits Lionel's daughter Philomena, who admits her mother returned to England recently. Then Headley's son Seb invites him to his dark room at night offering information about the blonde woman. He claims Bright held sessions at his studio with glamour models, plus Lionel and other middle-aged men.

Jones finally discovers who the woman is - but her identity comes as a complete shock. Then Seb invites Spellman to his darkroom for more revelations. With the evidence mounting against him, will Barnaby be able to clear his name?


They Seek Him Here

Synopsis

A new version of 'The Scarlet Pimpernel' is being shot in Midsomer Magna, but the atmosphere off the set rivals the battles of the film. Producer Jack Braxton and director Nick Cheyney hate each other, manor house owners Terence and Diane Charteris are broke and their marriage is on the rocks, while there's a painful history between their daughter Leonie and Cheyney.

DCI Barnaby and DS Jones get interested in events when they tail known thief George Ince to a meeting at the manor with Jed Norris, another ex-con. They are amazed to discover Norris is employed there as a security guard.

Meanwhile Joyce arrives with a group of residents from The Cedars care home who have been drafted in as cheap extras. Among them is Gwen Morrison, an old friend of Cheyney's who now runs a charity shop with Leonie.

Filming is disrupted when Raymond Clandillon, a larger-than-life gay alcoholic actor arrives, begging for a role. Cheyney casts him as an extra, much to the amusement of Neville Hayward, the brother of Gwen's late husband Ted. At one point, Raymond, Neville, Gwen and Ted were local actors known as the Four Musketeers, but after Ted died, Neville's friendship with Raymond soured.

Leonie interrupts dinner at Magna Manor to warn Cheyney to stay away from her son Josh. Diane also threatens him, as does Danny, Leonie's partner. Cheyney laughs it off but, later that night, Jed finds him beheaded by the guillotine, a film prop.

Braxton and Diane have alibis after they admit spending the night together, while Danny reveals that Josh is Cheyney's son, the result of a drunken night. And according to Neville, Raymond blames Cheyney for ruining his career, while Leonie suggests her father will stop at nothing to make money from Magna Manor.

With such a wide array of suspects to choose from, Barnaby is sure young Josh is central to the case. Then Bullard reveals Cheyney was drugged with morphine before he was beheaded.

As the complicated relationships of the Four Musketeers start to emerge, there is another beheading. But who is settling old scores and why?


Death in a Chocolate Box

Synopsis

Reformed criminal Ronnie Tyler prepares to leave Midsomer Holm, a tranquil village and halfway house founded by Lord Holm and detective-turned-psychotherapist Professor Gina Colby. At the heart of the village is an historic camera obscura.

New arrival Eddie Marston takes Ronnie's place, which DCI Barnaby is uneasy about. Meanwhile Gina's husband Jack, a former DS at Causton, is having trouble sleeping, haunted by the past.

Jack and Barnaby were close, but Jack can't open up to his old colleague now. He left the force under a cloud after Lord Holm was jailed for killing his unfaithful wife Maria with the handle from the camera obscura. Maria's conquests included the Friday Nighters - policemen who had sex with her in the cells while Jack was on duty.

After the scandal, Gina had resigned and retrained as a counsellor, and had visited Lord Holm in prison. When he got early release, he invited her to expand her work with offenders. Jack, now a probation officer, recommended Eddie for Midsomer Holm, even though he was the cop who got him jailed.

Cully and Simon arrive for a surprise visit, but Barnaby is called away when Jack's Land Rover is found wrecked in a ditch, with Jack dead. Bullard says Jack was murdered with a heavy iron bar.

The detectives learn that Jack was upset by financial problems at Midsomer Holm and his mood changed suddenly a month ago. Meanwhile Eddie Marston has disappeared.

Postman Lionel Poulter, one of the Friday Nighters, intercepts an envelope sent by Jack to Barnaby, containing newspaper cuttings and a threatening note. He phones Eddie but is found by Barnaby and Jones and forced to admit that he's been blackmailing Jack since meeting Eddie in jail. But what was Jack so anxious to hide?

The Animal Within

"Caroline Graham is the best detective writer since Agatha Christie"—London Sunday Times

"There are few better ways to unwind after making a killing at the office than by watching English people murder each other. This long-running British mystery series, inspired by the novels of Caroline Graham, is, like many a mystery from across the pond, set in a small English village. The feature-length mysteries in this new set have not aired in the U.S., and appear here on DVD for the first time. The mysteries are well-plotted, and the movies feature excellent British character actors, evocative settings and, luckily for the squeamish, not too much violence." -Smartmoney.com

I am a big fan of British TV series like Rosemary and Thyme, Downton Abbey, Foyle's War and Midsomer Murders of which I have just received sets 1,4,5 and 6.I already owned sets 2 and 3. These shows are most entertaining and without the ugly guts and gore and bad language of American shows. These shows are very clever and most enjoyable.
