Editorial Reviews

"The British rural version of Law & Order" --San Francisco Chronicle

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 Margaret Tyzack, Jenny Agutter, Nickolas Grace, Caroline Blakiston, Paul Shelley, and Paul Chapman.

THE MYSTERIES

Small Mercies--Little Worthing’s model village is the highlight of its tourism trade--until a dead body disfigures it.
The Creeper--A cat burglar’s robberies expose the dark secrets of a prominent family.
The Great and the Good--A village school’s possible closing leads to murder, mayhem, and a sleepwalking schoolteacher.

Customer Reviews

Well written, well acted, just plain good entertainment.
Anne Craven
I continue to collect the episodes of the great BBC mystery series and hope to complete the set very soon.
WUFFMAN
As always, Midsomer Murders is a mix of humor, crime, and relationships.

Based on a set of only seven novels by Caroline Graham (beginning with The Killings at Badger's Drift), Midsomer Murders is a long-running and very popular series that debuted in the U.K. in 1997. The series features the likable Detective Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby (John Nettles) and is set in the fictional English county of Midsomer which consists of several villages each of which seems to rival Cabot Cove, Maine for their improbably high murder rates.

Graham had a penchant for "interesting" characters and over the years, the show's writers have stayed true to the author's taste. Often quirky, sometimes downright odd, the characters and their many idiosyncrasies are central to each episode. Along with the uniformly first-rate acting, the quality writing and the intricate plots, they have helped to keep the show dependably entertaining. It is the only television show on my auto-buy list.

With elements of the traditional whodunit, non-graphic police procedural and old-fashioned British cozy, Midsomer Murders should appeal to a variety of murder mystery fans. Barnaby is an approachable type and episodes nicely mix his work and home lives. His wife Joyce and daughter Cully appear often and occasionally find themselves involved in his investigations. The series has very little overall story arc and episodes exist more or less independent of one another. IMHO, they need not be viewed in broadcast order. Barnaby's Detective Sergeants do change a number of times over the run of the series, though, so viewers who might be annoyed by viewing episodes out of order for that reason should start at the beginning.

This series reached continuing perfection long ago. Series 18 contains yet 3 additional episodes which have Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby being played by
John Nettles. He has toughness toward crime, but softness toward his daughter Culley who doesn't appear in this set. This cop character makes watching suspenseful murder mysteries a pleasure. It's primarily murder mystery in a quaint little rural village in Midsomer County. (The MM series is known for it's picturesque footage.) Multiple murders have been happening for so long (a trademark of this show) it's a wonder there is anyone left to arrest. Fear not, this series is as good as any you have seen. If you are new to Midsomer Murders and CI Barnaby, then hold on to your hat. I'd strongly recommend buying one of the box sets already available.
IN SET #18, wife Joyce is still in the picture, making moments of each episode a homey experience, but not for long. Every phone call seems to be a new murder, and a call away from the delightful cooking that Joyce provides for her love. Barnaby keeps his helper, DS Jones (Jason Hughes), very busy. Smashing series, Spot ON since the very first episodes, many years ago. But can the show survive without Barnaby (Nettles)? We'll be finding out soon enough. But not in Set 18.

3 longer-than-feature-length episodes makes the per episode price a bargain compared to new feature-length theater movies.
Price was reduced from other sets like #17 reflecting 3, not 4, episodes.
SUBTITLES included. Entertainment guaranteed.
Watching old and new guest stars are as fun as the plots themselves.

Small Mercies
Gulliver (corpse) comes to a small English village, tied to the earth, but stabbed to death. Since one murder is never enough in Midsomer, his girlfriend is also killed.

THE MYSTERIES
Small Mercies--Little Worthy's model village is the highlight of its tourist trade--until a dead body disfigures it.
The Creeper--A cat burglar's robberies expose the dark secrets of a prominent family.
The Great and the Good--A village school's possible closing leads to murder, mayhem, and a sleepwalking schoolteacher.

John Nettles is still in top form, making it sad that he will be leaving after set 20. But at least I will be able to enjoy a few more of his quirky investigations here.
Series 12 was one episode short in production, making this the shortest Acorn DVD release of the series. John's last series (13) returns to its full 8 episode run which will mean that Acorn's sets 19 & 20 will return to 4 episodes each next year.

DVD FEATURES INCLUDE an interview with star Jason Hughes (23 min.).

Three mysteries of approx. 100 min. each, plus bonus; color; stereo; 16:9 widescreen; British mystery; not rated; SDH subtitles

Since I wanted to be the first kid on the block to view Midsomer Murders, set 18, I ordered it directly from Acorn Media, and just watched the three episodes.
The series' quality remains very high, and I join all MM fans in lamenting the imminent departure of John Nettles, however I trust that the creative team has chosen well in casting Neil Dudgeon as his replacement, though I am totally unfamiliar with his work.
Incidentally, the first episode of this set, ''Small Mercies,'' has, in a small part, one Abigail Thaw, daughter of our beloved Morse, John Thaw.
