Caroline Graham biography

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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a long wait! But the show is well worth it! September 14, 2009
By Shopper
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
(if you are shopping for season 14, then I assume you know the basics already; still I am including the show outline in the PS paragraph; hope this helps)

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'M ONE OF THE OLDER PEOPLE January 4, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In response to "Older People", thank God for an intelligent, thought provoking, character building show! I am so sick and tired of shootouts, car chases, extreme violence, gratuitous sex and stories with no substance. Midsomer Murders does not have all these things, just good story lines, excellent character development and real actors. And as far as being "Cute", what planet do you come from? I am a huge mystery buff and own all the Frost, Morse, Inspector Lindley, Miss Marple, Piroit, Rough Diamond (another gem) and Sherlock Holmes DVD's and Midsomer Murders is right up there with these oustanding, well developed shows. I'm an American and let me tell you, I would rather watch all of the above shows than all the crap (with the exception of NCIS)that is on American TV. Thank God for British mysteries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Character Development January 9, 2010
I read with amusement the unfavorable review; the one suggesting this show puts the "old folks" to sleep. I submit that if you have ADHD and need a new stabbing or shooting every 30 seconds then this is not the show for you. If you're hooked on graphic violence or gratuitous violence to keep your interest...then keep that remote in your hand and keep changing channels. On the other hand, if you're looking for a show where there's a little more character development, where you feel like you're getting to know the personalities of the key players then keep watching. If you're just as happy to have the violent beating, stabbing, strangling, and shooting take place "off camera" then you'll enjoy Midsomer Murders. If you enjoy trying to "figure out" the motive and identity of the culprit, this is a very good show. I enjoy "A Touch of Frost," "Inspector Morse," "Prime Suspect," and "Foyle's War" as well. Tom

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Only the Mystery September 21, 2009
By Lindewy
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a long time fan of the Midsomer Murder series, I obviously enjoy the great mysteries. You just can't figure out "who done it". But there is an added plus to these stories, and that is the beautiful sets. Whether the action takes place in mid-summer or fall or winter or spring, the sets are absolutely beautiful - especially if you are a student or fan of architecture and/or gardening. The sets, both indoor and out, are gorgeous. Where else do you get a story that would qualify for an Edgar, as well as an award from "House and Garden"? What a wonderful couple of hours to give yourself!

UPDATE: The next Midsomer DVD set (15) not only has the 3 episode presentations, very well done, as always, but it has a bonus disc "Super Sleuths," a documentary about the show's first decade which is quite interesting and welcome to even the most avid of fans. The bonus disc is a duplicate for anyone who has purchased the 17 mystery super box of "MIDSOMER MURDERS: BARNABY'S CASEBOOK". That set had two bonus discs and this is one of those. For those buying this series one set at a time, the bonus disc will be a delightful added feature to your Midsomer Murders entertainment. So...Set 15 is a 4-disc pack, not 3. A value, and the episodes are suspensefully death-defying.
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.

english subtitles for hearing impaired
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?
