WHAT EVIL LURKS BEYOND THE WELL-TRIMMED HEDGES OF MIDSOMER…
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 Tom Barnaby, with Jason Hughes (This Life) as his earnest, efficient protégé, Detective Sergeant Ben Jones. Guest stars include Stephanie Cole, Gareth Thomas, Christopher Fairbank, Richard Hope, Peter Eyre, Chris Barrie, Matthew Marsh, and Clare Higgins.
Death and Dust--The impending marriage of a widowed doctor and a well-to-do divorcée motivates a murder of mistaken identity.
Picture of Innocence--In the midst of a “shooting war” between rival camera clubs, someone tries to frame Barnaby--and definitely not for a portrait.
They Seek Him Here--Heads roll, quite literally, when a movie crew begins filming an adventure classic set during the French Revolution.
Death in a Chocolate Box--A long-buried scandal reemerges to haunt two of Barnaby’s former colleagues, now the managers of a halfway house.

This is such a LOOOOOONG wait, but...I thought I would share a few thoughts on the upcoming episodes: Death and Dust, A Picture of Innocence, They Seek Him Here, and Death in a Chocolate Box (eps 56 thru 59). All four were originally aired on British TV from May 2007 to May 2008. The US Feb 2010 DVD release date means we are more then two years behind. Ghrrrrr.... Still, I believe these episodes are well worth the wait: Barnaby himself becomes a murder suspect (!), MM's trademark inventive murder tools make an appearance (including a guillotine!), and we see the return of Simon, Cully's (Barnaby's daughter's) intended. Alas, Cully's wedding (episode 60) is still a long time coming (according to Acorn, set 15 has a tentative release date of June 2010, and set 16 of Oct 2010; we will have THREE sets, rather then the usual two in 2010!!!).
As excited as I am for season 14, according to Brian Tru-May, the show's executive producer, there are many well known actors interested in guest starring in future episodes, including Michael Caine, Roger Moore, and Johnny Depp (!!!). I hope this great show goes on forever! ;o) Still, no word on who is taking over for John Nettles when he retires...
UPDATE (Feb 10, 2010): Nettles' replacement has been revelaed. I have included the details in Set 16 review.
PS: For those new to this British masterpiece, Midsomer Murders is a long running "who done it", based on the novels of Caroline Graham, starring John Nettles (of the Bergerac fame) as the unflappable Detective Chief Inspector Barnaby.Read more ›
Order it now with your set 14--you WILL want them both.
Midsomer is the heart of murder. And the "MIDSOMER MURDERS" series is the heart of British Mystery Drama, and continues to be after a dozen years. It's longevity is it's greatest review recommendation. If you are new to Midsomer Murders, be made aware that Midsomer is the county of multiple murders. Almost never just one at a time. Barnaby (John Nettles) would not know what happened if he was left with only one body per case.
This 4 DVD set 14 contains 4 feature-length stand alone stories, but the same excellent regular cast. Besides DCI Barnaby, is wife Joyce (Jane Wymark) and daughter Cully (Laura Howard). They add a family home-life plot to every episode, always interrupted by the murder investigation underway. The ladies also add a delicate touch of romance to the show. Jason Hughes plays DS Jones, Barnaby's right hand man.Read more ›

I would like to know the answer to the Closed Caption question. As far as I know they do not come with CC. Why this is I don't understand. Since this show is not available to watch in the USA I would like to buy the sets. I have hearing problems and need the CC. Why is this not available?
