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 Neil Dudgeon (Life of Riley) as the capable Detective Chief Inspector John Barnaby, with Jason Hughes (This Life) as his earnest, efficient partner, Detective Sergeant Ben Jones. Guest stars include Warren Clarke, Joanna David, Genevieve O’Reilly, and James Dreyfus.

THE MYSTERIES
The Sleeper under the Hill—Barnaby and Jones investigate a group of Druids in Midsomer Mow.
The Night of the Stag—Local bootleggers come under suspicion after the disappearance of a government inspector.
A Sacred Trust—Vandalism and violence send shock waves through Midsomer’s cloistered nunnery.
A Rare Bird—The detectives investigate whether competition between ornithology enthusiasts led to murder.

In the U.K., these four mysteries were originally part of a season with four previous episodes, released here as "Set 21." Thankfully, these four stories return to the offbeat, humorous alternative universe that Midsomer fans crave. What could be more enticing than pints of bubbly cider with DCI John Barnaby (Neil Dudgeon) and DI Ben Jones (Jason Hughes)? But beware, in Midomer County, even Beltane celebrations are treacherous. Children dance around a Maypole, whilst fat sausages roast under the refreshments tent, and the cider is not all it seems. Midsomer is a remarkably deadly place, a deceptively delicious chocolate box filled poisoned confections. Generations of loyal inhabitants risk life and limb to live in Midsomer's bucolic hills and dales. Thankfully, DCI John Barnaby is as gifted at detection as his cousin Tom. The Barnaby line is rooted in Midsomer's earth, they are dependable in never being surprised by bizarre occurrences. Nothing flummoxes or gobsmacks a true Barnaby. The excellent actor Neil Dudgeon enriches Midsomer with his wry nuance. And Jason Hughes is intrepid as Detective Inspector Ben Jones, his humor adds another level of complexity to the series. Coziness in the U.K. has a macabre stain; like a lace doily blotched with tea, darkness lurks at the edges. In Midsomer County's dangerous environs, denizens inflict and suffer numerous creative malaises.

The U.K. boasts numerous fine (and often underrated) actors. While you impatiently wait for more "Midsomer," you may want to catch Neil Dudgeon in an unforgettable performance in a superb story in episode 3 of the first season of the BAFTA Award winning series The Street Complete Collection.

I was afraid I wouldn't like the series any longer with the departure of John Nettles. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I enjoyed his replacement very much....and will continue to purchase each set as they come out. Midsomer will continue to be well protected by a Barnaby.

I have been an avid and devout fan of Midsomer Murders from its first airing. I have re-watched every episode. Suffice it to say, I was heartbroken when John Nettles as DCI Tom Barnaby left the show. I was doubtful that the series could carry on without him. Still, trying to be optimistic; I held out hope that I could learn to enjoy the series with Neil Dudgeon as DCI John Barnaby. I like Neil Dudgeon. I saw him in The Mrs. Bradley Mysteries and thought he was charming.

My opinion and this review is definitely slanted by my love and enjoyment of the original. I have tried to judge the "new" show on its own merits and it does have one, which I'll mention when I've finished ranting. I can't do an unbiased review. I can't help but compare. I am in mourning for the original.

My grief is fresh as I just barely finished this latest installment. The first four episodes without John Nettles were an incredible disappointment but I wanted to be fair; giving new DCI John Barnaby and DS Ben Jones some time to gel. Sadly, in my opinion, these four episodes show no improvement over the previous four. In fact, I found them to be worse. As of this writing, I am not looking forward to the next set and don't think I'll watch it.

My biggest complaint has to be the appearance of contempt for the existing department, lead by Tom Barnaby, specifically his long-time sergeant, Ben Jones, and pathologist, Dr. George Bullard (who left the show in the first installment of the "new" MSM,) displayed by DCI John Barnaby. This was confusing to me because John and Tom are cousins and Tom was no slouch! Why the contempt? In addition, Jones and Bullard were also exceptional at their respective jobs. Why did the writers do this?

Great plots and twists. I am enjoying the new DCI very much. More beautiful English countryside and tea services as well!

While I don't dislike Neil Dudgeon, his character of John Barnaby just doesn't mesh well with Ben Jones which is probably why Jason Hughes is leaving the show. There are just too many old faces missing that makes this show changed to the worse not better. I do prefer John's wife and dog to Joyce and Cully, however that will not keep me buying these sets and when Jason departs so will I as they have already started filming without him and have cast a new face.

The mysteries were inferior to previous Midsomer's and The Night of the Stag was one of the worst episodes ever. I will never re-watch this episode as the ending was over the top - where were the police? With that amount of time death would have been imminent for DCI Barnaby. It didn't matter who was guilty or innocent in this episode as I had lost interest some time before the ending occurred.

Sacred Trust was one of the better episodes and I did enjoy it as it was more of the old Midsomer even though it was a bit sad.

One has to wonder if Midsomer has "jumped the shark"?

I have enjoyed this series so much that I decided to give it a chance even after the departure of the main character, Inspector Tom Barnaby, played by John Nettles. Unfortunately, It was the chemistry of those specific actors, as much as the story lines, that made this show so wonderful. For the time that an episode lasted you could almost feel that you were part of Midsomer itself. The new Inspector, John Barnaby, played by Neil Dudgeon just doesn't have the same charm. His character comes across as more supercilious than likable. I also very much miss Barry Jackson who played George Bullard, the pathologist. His interactions with the Inspector were always a treat to watch. I would have enjoyed seeing him do more rather than have him eliminated from the production. ( For the sake of political correctness he was eliminated and replaced by a young woman to add "diversity".)
If you were a fan of the series starring John Nettles, you may settle for this newer version. But for me, the new incarnation doesn't cut it. Sadly, I will no longer look forward to ordering the newest release.
