If you are new to Midsomer Murders and CI Barnaby there are years of award winning episodes to view. My favorite is ALWAYS the one I just viewed.
Wife Joyce (Jane Wymark), daughter Cully (Laura Howard) & DC Stephens (Kirsty Dillon) all make this set their exit from this long-running British TV show, as does Nettles. Cast regulars DS Jones (Jason Hughes) and Dr. Bullard (Barry Jackson) will remain for future episodes with DCI John Barnaby (Neil Dudgeon) leading those investigations. John Barnaby is involved in this set's last episode. A smashing series but there will be those upset and downplaying the future once Nettles is gone. He does leave large shoes to fill, as does the departing cast that exits behind him. But that's set 21, not 20, so why worry now, and the shows will yet be based on Caroline Graham novels, and the writing has been a huge factor in the longevity which started in 1997.
SUBTITLES available in all 4 longer-than-feature-length episodes
Guest stars (too numerous to mention them all) are as characteristic of Midsomer Murders as the multiple murders and multiple plots mixing humor, crime, and relationships, and beautiful scenes. I've heard on bonus materials in the past that stars beg to kill or be murdered in Midsomer.

Midsomer County is oddly rife with uncanny mysteries, so it's good that John Barnaby is gifted with the same powers of keen observation and memory as his cousin Tom. A "similar-looking" man was a gifted gardener in an early Midsomer mystery; DCI John Barnaby is likely as good with plants as his look-alike. This is a Midsomer family after all, they often feature peculiar, recurring family resemblances (recall the duo in first Midsomer Mystery, "The Killings of Badger's Drift"). Sharp dialogue makes this collection a real treat. Don't assume this is lace doily stuff, no indeed! We even love the weird and unique music. Note the badger emblem on the police cars. The Brits have knack for mixing classic stories with ghoulish humor and sharp observations of the flawed human character.Read more ›
We love murder mysteries, and the British mysteries are the best! We have all the Morse, Lewis, Frost, Poirot, Dalgliesh, Lynley, Holmes, and Foyle's War series, as well as a few other miscellaneous sets (Lark Rise to Candleford is a favorite!!), and we treasure them all.
Thanks to Amazon for bringing us good entertainment! You're my favorite website!
The picture on the box is also confusing. The figure on the left is John Nettles who has starred in all 13 seasons. He stopped at the end of the season 13 and the actor on the right took over the Barnaby role as his cousin. This actor is shown in this season but it is Ben who remains Barnaby's partner and who should really be shown on the box. The actor on the right has played the lead in the rest of the series which has already aired in the UK as season 14 and two episodes of season 15. These numbers have nothing to do with the sets of dvds numbering as they are being released in the USA.
You may find this useful as it can be very confusing if you are following this show in more than one viewing resource.
This concluding season for John Nettles is every bit as good as the prior seasons. The high camp humor continues throughout. The concluding one is rather poignant as we learn then that John Nettles is retiring as Chief Inspector Barnaby. The show as a whole has cast a satiric gaze on the UK murder mystery which features the grisliest murders in the most bucolic and idyllic village settings. Throughout their polite, purpose filled days in leading proper lives, these people are capable of quite compelling bits of violence and the detectives find them out with their own inventive and amusing ways.Read more ›
