Ironically, the formidable acting skills of Neil Dudgeon as Chief Inspector John Barnaby and Jason Hughes as Detective Ben Jones are apparent, but the characters they play are not the Jones of yore or the new Barnaby introduced before the departure of John Nettles. They are strangers. They are not the Midsomer inhabitants we have come to know. The medical examiner, Dr. George Bullard, played by Barry Jackson also suffers character misalignment. In Series 21 he seems be less inquisitive and now ready to accept any answer. His rhetorical bantering formerly appreciated by viewers is lost. The close family unit of Joyce (Jane Wymark), Cully (Laura Howard) and Tom Barnaby (John Nettles) that gave warmth and gentleness in the world of law enforcement and crimes has disappeared.Read more ›
The stories were dull and uninteresting.
As an unwelcome parting shot; George the medical examiner anounced that he was retiring and that would be his last show. I used to purchase these sets on Amazon. I have them all. Sadly Set 20 was and will be my last purchase.
We miss our old friend John Nettles.

Clarify further: Amazon is absolutely the best deal. If you can wait 3 months longer for a Midsomer set to be released rather than purchase from AcornOnline, which I did and paid $60, then wait. I have previously waited and purchased from Amazon. Read the AcornOnline reviews (and Amazon reviews). Over 100 viewers loved this new series/set 21 with Neil Dudgeon, who is a fine actor. But we were disappointed. Maybe our expectations were too high!

One of the very best British imports. If you like Foyle's War, you'll love Midsomer Murders. British detectives are quite different from their American counterparts. Read morePublished 24 days ago by D. Gelman
