Agatha Christie, the world's most successful mystery writer, considered plot to be of utmost importance when crafting her stories. Graham, on the other hand, has said that she prefers to start out with interesting characters and allow the plot to form around them. And it is certainly the characters that are the centerpiece of Midsomer Murders. Unusual, odd and memorable are all words that could be used to describe the show's colorful collection of villagers - including the murderers, the victims and the bystanders, very few of whom could be described as "innocent".
Part police procedural, part quirky cozy, part traditional whodunit, Midsomer Murders should appeal to a variety of murder mystery fans. Even after seeing nearly 70 episodes, I find the show remains dependably entertaining with strong writing, intricate plots and uniformly first-rate acting. Episodes exist more or less independent of one another and need not be viewed in broadcast order. However, because of Barnaby's changing Detective Sergeants over the years, viewers might wish to do so.Read more ›
No foul language issues, but plenty of good family murder mystery--the murder is almost never seen, just the moments up to the kill, and then of course the body. How many ways can a person be murdered? The shows seem to be released to DVD faster than ever, considering showing schedules in multiple countries. A tip of the had to Acorn Media. Also SUBTITLES. Not rated by good for teens and older.
The episodes each about 100 min.: Inspired by Caroline Graham novels.
The Dogleg Murders, aired March 2009
Whiteoak golf course in Worthy is found Crisp's Folly, hole 13 and a blind dogleg. While searching for a ball, a rude golfer is ironed to death, his own club. Suspicious death! As in the Barnaby and Midsomer tradition, the murders accumulate faster than pars. And a club member tells Barnaby about gambling on the greens. Duh, it's golf for Pete's sake. What a delicious golf course to see, outstanding scenic tour, as is all of Midsomer Murder episodes.Read more ›
