At this rate, the citizenry of England will soon be decimated, leaving only Barnaby and Sgt Troy!
For those new to the series, I would recommend viewing the series in the order in which it was aired, not by the consecutive order of the Set numbers. For instance, "Set 5" is actually Season 1 which aired in 1998. "Set 4" is mostly Season 5 which aired in 2002. Below, is an overview for your viewing convenience.

Whilst this isn't a saga, I do think a production of this quality deserves to be viewed in the correct order. Happy sleuthing!
As for the Electric Vendetta, I was disappointed. Not a very good explanation why such a vendetta went on 40 years. Another problem: If you compare the actors portraying the same characters -- as elderly people and as young kids -- there's way more than 40 years between the two. The older characters look like they're in their late 70s while the younger characters look like they're in their late teens or 20 years old. Cause Midsomer Murders are around 1998-2000, that means 40 years earlier would have been late 1950s-early 1960s, yet the clothing and hairstyles look like the 1940s. Based upon the age difference between the older vs. younger actors and the clothing and hairstyles on the younger characters, it looks more like 55 to 60 years difference, not 40 years difference.
Overall, I love this series and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys British TV, crime dramas and such.
