Imagine Saint Mary Mead. Squared. Then add some extra blood and mayhem.

That about describes the setting of "Midsomer Murders," a morbidly witty British mystery series based on Caroline Graham's novels. And "Midsomer Murders: Barnaby's Casebook" brings together the the next round of seventeen cases in this cozy, dark little county, drawing from the fourth, sixth, seventh and eighth seasons of the series. It's a great half'n'half combo of police procedural and cozy mystery.

Snotty society beauty Melissa Townsend is receiving some threatening letters, apparently because of the death of a tenant that stemmed from her neglect. Then she's found stabbed with a syringe filled with animal tranquilizers. Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby (John Nettles) starts investigating the murder, especially the possible involvement of Melissa's best friend (and a bit more), a drunk driving case, and secret blackmail. And more murders, of course.

From there on, Barnaby and his assistant, Detective Sergeant Gavin Troy (Daniel Casey), are forced to investigate all sorts of crimes -- a group of bell-ringers that are being bumped off, a prestigious boarding school with a deadly secret, a farmer's wife's apparent suicide, a vibrant but obnoxious widow's murder, a bizarrely complex murder tied to a mental hospital, a dead body found during an art class, an investor found dead in a river, and an old-as-dirt feud between two halves of a Midsomer town, which may hold the key to a series of deaths on the set of new movie "The House Of Satan."

Then Troy receives a promotion, and does one last case with Barnaby: a gentle recluse in the woods is implicated in the murder of his late tormentor.

Midsomer Murders - Set Six Market for Murder was one of my favorite of the Midsomer Murders Set 6. I have all 13 sets of the series and am waitng for 14 and 15. As a Yank across the ocean I first saw this series on A&E years ago and never dreamed of owning any sets. I love the cast and characters they portray. The best part about the series is the characters come as they are; bad hair, bad teeth, bad cloths etc, no makeup, shoot outs, wild car chases, or mayhem. So classy and oh so British and I especially thank you for the respect that characters show in the series. I am dazzled by the English countryside and the old estates. Market for Murder was more up to date in its story especially the reading/investment club but wow, who would have thought it would lead to so many murders. And how about the sexy pool guy who was more than a pool guy. It is always exciting to see how all the characters will interact and what secrets they are hiding. Every actor and part they played fit together so well and I didn't want the story to end. My husband and I have watched all 13 sets at least 5 times and have converted a good friend into a fanatical fan of DCI Barnaby.

Kudo's to the producers, directors and music director. What a fabulous job they do in creating all the stories and putting them together. I love the Midsomer theme song.

Murder is rampant, and as mystifyingly delicious making it comparable to Poirot and Foyle's War. DCI Barnaby (John Nettles) has taken on the fictional Midsomer County murder abundance, some call it massacre, since 1997 and this set offers 17 feature-length murder stories. Multiple killing chaos is the norm in Midsomer. But you'll be booking a flight to London (filming done in rural hamlets just outside London) to have tea with scones in the green of some village, excitedly waiting for the next bludgeoning murder (always solved).

Regulars, like loving wife Joyce (Jane Wymark), great cook, companion, and in charge of lightening the story with homespun gentleness, is offset with another, Barnaby's dialogue/murder solving companion, Troy (Daniel Casey), who adds comedy--YES I said comedy--to each episode with his expressions, statements, and unusual additions to crime scene clues. He is eventually replaced during this box set's episodes by Sgt. Scott (John Hopkins) without detriment.

Show guest stars make this a fresh dynamic series each time. One of my favorite was Gemma Jones whom I come to love as "The Duchess of Duke Street" (highly recommended sets) who was cast in "Ring Out Your Dead", a bell tower murder, well actually 5 murders and one additional attempt, high volume even for Midsomer County. With every episode, predicting Who Dun It? is impossible. Just try!

Multiple murders in every episode are a trademark, intended from the very beginning, by the writers/producers to make Midsomer Murders unique. That it is! And no swearing, but plenty of good family murder mystery--the murder almost never seen, just the moments up to the kill, and then of course the body. How many ways can a person be murdered? Midsomer keeps finding new ones.

Midsomer Murders is so much better than other cop shows which go out of their way to be as gory or porn like as possible. While there is some nudity and some foul language it does not go overboard with either. Even though I've seen all these shows - at least through season 16 - I enjoy watching them again & again.
