Editorial Reviews

The cozy villages of Midsomer County reveal their most sinister secrets in these contemporary British television mysteries. Inspired by the novels of Caroline Graham, modern master of the English village mystery, the series stars John Nettles (Bergerac) as the unflappable Detective Chief Inspector Barnaby with Daniel Casey (The Wingless Bird) as his eager young assistant. Guest stars include Sarah Alexander, Victoria Hamilton, Samantha Bond, Anthony Bate, Kenneth Colley, Gillian Kearney and Celia Imrie.
The Mysteries: Garden of Death — One of the most beautiful spots in Midsomer Deverell becomes a source of contention and then something far worse. Destroying Angel — When the owner of the Easterly Grange Hotel dies, the hotel’s manger fails to show up at the funeral or at the reading of the will that names him part-owner. The Electric Vendetta — A mutilated body found in the middle of a crop circle leads some to suspect that aliens have invaded Midsomer Parva. Who Killed Cock Robin? — In Newton Magna, a murder mars plans for the upcoming wedding of the village squire’s daughter. Dark Autumn — In Goodman’s Land, the postman is brutally murdered. Turns out he was delivering more than mail to the village women.

DVD BONUS FEATURES INCLUDE Midsomer map, cast filmographies, Caroline Graham biography and scene index.

Fully in line with my expectations for BBC excellence, the Midsomer Murders series doesn't disappoint. I did find however the Set numbering quite confusing as it didn't seem to correspond to the character developments.

For those new to the series, I would recommend viewing the series in the order in which it was aired, not by the consecutive order of the Set numbers. For instance, "Set 5" is actually Season 1 which aired in 1998. "Set 4" is mostly Season 5 which aired in 2002. Below, is an overview for your viewing convenience.

Format: DVD
Many of you might have watched "Midsomer Murders" over the commercial-ridden A&E channel and have joined millions on both sides of the Atlantic in becoming devoted fans. For you, good news. Acorn Media has issued the third set that includes five more episodes in boxed sets of 5 DVDs.
Briefly, in the first set, "Death's Shadow" deals with several weird murders in Badger's Drift, "Strangler's Wood" with the seeming renewal of serial killings after many years, "Blood Will Out" with the effect of nomadic groups on local problems, and "Beyond the Grave" (the most gothic of the four) with ghostly doings in a museum.
In the second, we have "Dead Man's Eleven" dealing with a cricket bat as a murder weapon and a cricket game as the scene of yet another murder; "Death of a Stranger" dealing with fox hunting, strange tramps, Oscar Wilde, and murder; "Blue Herrings" dealing with suspicious deaths in a home for the elderly; and "Judgement Day" dealing with a "perfect" village trying to win an award as the bodies pile up.
In this latest set, "Garden of Death" involves local outrage at the commercialization of a local treasure; "Destroying Angel" is about murders concerning a hotel; "The Electric Vendetta" centers around those who do and do not believe in UFOs; "Who Killed Cock Robin" is about a love affair, while "Dark Autumn" is about multiple love affairs.
In a former review, I said that I found the first two series just a little less striking, a little more low-key, than those I have raved about in the Wimsey, Poirot and Miss Marple series. I added that "Midsomer Murders" seems a recycling of the Inspector Morse series but without that character's idiosyncrasies.

The Midsomer Murders series is the best contemporary British mystery series available on DVD for Anglophiles who want to believe England has not changed for the worse. I am a big fan of the older Mystery series as seen on PBS, and have purchased most of the DVDs available for `Morse', `Poirot', `Marple" as well as others that reflect `crime' in earlier imaginary ages. Most of us who travel to the UK from time to time are painfully aware that England as a Never-Never land disappeared long ago, if indeed it ever existed, but the Midsomer series allows us to play "adult pretend" as it portrays England as it might have been and might still be if you know where to look in Kent and the Cotswolds.

While other excellent mystery series depict the UK (especially London) as it really is -- gritty and not terribly different from many major cities in the US (BBC-America `Mystery Monday' lineup, i.e., `Murder in Suburbia' and `Wire in the Blood.'), the `Midsomer Murders' series fits the definition of "cozy" as given by PBS Mystery host Diana Rigg (I think these shows are A&E products that have never been shown on PBS, however). Although the series is set in modern times with cell phones and computers, the producers know where to take the crew on location (as they describe in the extra features on the DVDs), as well as the fact that many Americans want England served up as a kind of fantasy-land where a finite line-up of suspects falls into place and social order is maintained (One wag described England as the American Anglophile's Disney Land). And, just like the old mysteries by Christie and March, motive and timing become the means of entrapment-not forensics, while sleuths not terribly unlike Dectective Allyn solve the crime.
