Perfection achieved long ago in Midsomer Murders. Series 19 with 4 episodes Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby being played by John Nettles. He has toughness toward crime, but softness slips out occasionally. The combination makes watching suspenseful murder mysteries a pleasure. It is murder mystery in Midsomer County, the quaintest little village settings you will ever see, on drama shows or travelogues. Multiple murder mayhem has been happening from day one, 1997 (show's trademark). There was one show exception, to my memory, but it had a handful of potential murder investigations. Is anyone left to arrest in Midsomer?

If you are new to Midsomer Murders and CI Barnaby, then hold on to your hat, and I'd strongly recommend buying one of the box sets already available. There is also a set of 10 episodes selected by star Nettles, as his favorite for different reasons and each has an introduction by the star that adds even more interest to the episodes. That's another good way to introduce yourself to this saga of murder.

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. But can the show survive without Barnaby (Nettles)? We'll be finding out soon enough. But not in Set 19. One episode does give viewers a look at Barnaby's cousin, DCI John, who will head the shows in a time of the future, somewhere beyond Set 19.

4 longer-than-feature-length; and all with SUBTITLES included. Same old guaranteed entertainment, proven by this show's record.
Guest stars aplenty.

I was introduced to Midsomer Murders recently. I bought Set 17 and Set 18 at a steal on Amazon. I really enjoyed all the episodes on both sets. I think the show is just simply incredible. It's so slow moving but before you know it the show's over.

I do have a question for all the diehard Midsomer Murders fans out there. Would anybody know if the other sets have subtitles? I would like to buy the other sets but only if there are subtitles. The British English is kind of difficult for me to understand.

Anyway, I'm now a big fan of Midsomer Murders and I highly recommend this show to all Agatha Christie fans. Thank you very much.

The whole series is as comforting as an old sweater on a cold winter evening in front of the fire. Midsomer's population is now one tenth of what is was before this series began...there have been so many murders that I think even Tom Barnaby and all three of his sergeants in the series have counted. This series brings to light the quality of British television and if anyone ever tries to say the US has a Monopoly on good television...take an evening and watch Midsomer Murders The light hearted dry humor, the clues along the way, and the banter between Tom, his wife and daughter (now married and gone away), George the long-time forensics expert (through out the entire series), and some of the usual suspects are bright spots in the story-telling. The beacon and the foundation is Tom Barnaby, a tough-as-nails CI (Chief Investigator), with a soft center like a good chocolate. The gruesome (no splatter) murders, and the way the story unravels the clues in front of your eyes without giving away the, often, surprising ending will constantly entertain you, and keep you wishing that you might consider yourself lucky to have become a fan of this long-standing top shelf drama. It just doesn't get any better than this program for a Who-Done-It. The countryside vistas will remind you of All Creatures Great and Small (with Robert Hardy), and the quaint little English villages make you wish you could buy a ticket to spend your next Bank Holiday traveling to all corners of the County of Midsomer. The churches alone, highlighted in many episodes are simple and magnificent to the eye. This program is candy for the brain, and easy on the eye, and a joy to relax with on any afternoon or evening. Enjoy and behold the Spot-On pleasure of a top-quality program, great acting (you sometimes can't tell if John Nettles is acting at all!), and another body on the moor to keep the team jumping and you guessing.

I have all 18 sets of Midsomer Murders and absolutely love the show! I began collecting years ago and am still greatly involved in the show. Time will tell if the new Barnaby can maintain the interest like Nettles. Great British Mystery series!

Midsomer Murders is a wonderful series. Unfortunately, even the best of series have blips in their road to status as classics.

This group of four episodes is deeply, profoundly, appallingly bad. The Wild West episode, in which the members of the relevant society inexplicably canter around with Confederate flags (wrong time period, wrong geographical area, where are the fact checkers?), may hold pride of place as the worst episode of anything I have ever watched. Of course, most of the time when something is clearly going to be terrible, I don't watch the rest of whatever it is, but in this case, and out of deference to my long acquaintance with this series, I stuck with it. That's ninety minutes I won't get back. It was at least memorable!

It has seemed to me with later sets of this series that the writers have relied to excess on homicidal mania for their plots. This is a mistake. As far as I can tell, the only significant weakness in the later sets is the writing--I still love Tom Barnaby, and I enjoy Joyce, although I would not want her for a friend as her friends seem to have VERY short life expectancies. I would certainly NEVER let her join any organization of which I was a member, and if I saw her at any event I would run, not walk, to the nearest exit.

You get the idea.

With improvement to the plots, this series could easily resume its status as the wonderful vehicle for terrific acting that it already is. In the meantime, I would recommend to the residents of Midsomer that they (1) stay out of graveyards, (2) stay away from churches of any kind, (3) avoid Joyce Barnaby at any cost, and (4) never go out at night, ever, with an emphasis on never going into any wooded area (either night or day). And if you hear an owl, run.
