WHAT EVIL LURKS BEYOND THE WELL-TRIMMED HEDGES OF MIDSOMER…

Guest stars include Martine McCutcheon, Cheryl Campbell, Maggie Steed, Kate Ashfield, and Julie Graham.

However, I must admit, the murders, twists and turns, and suspense of the Midsomer Murders, since John Nettles moved on, has kept its integrity intact. As long as the basic plots remain true to Midsomer Murders' standards, I can adapt to ALMOST any changes of lead characters.
Bottom line: When Set 25 is listed for reserve/purchase, I will be there with the first customers (on the web) buying my copy.
This recent installment showed slight improvement over the last two but this is more than the changing cast. The writing has become substantially weaker, as if a new team were attempting to "get to know" the characters. Ben Jones is the best example of this, with the loss of Tom Barnaby he had been reduced to buffoon status, a comic sidekick. Now he is an often wrong sounding board.
The plot develop and resolution on each of the new three are at best predictable and at worst cliche.
I would strongly recommend, if you have Netflix, to wait until they become available and then make a purchasing decision. This is our plan of action as we're no longer confident in the quality that has been the staple of "Midsomer Murders".
