Description
In this "British rural version of Law & Order" (San Francisco Chronicle), Detective Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby of the Causton Criminal Investigation Department (John Nettles) is aided in his investigations by Sergeant Ben Jones (Jason Hughes). Set in the picture-perfect yet perilous County of Midsomer, these four feature-length, stand-alone mysteries begin with "The Made-to-Measure Murders," in which a widow is stabbed on her way to confession. Soon another villager is killed—and the coroner makes a startling discovery about the murder weapon. In "The Sword of Guillaume," Barnaby works with his cousin, Brighton's DCI John Barnaby, to understand a series of threatening letters to a wealthy landowner that escalates to murder. In "Blood on the Saddle," a dispute over property lines turns a Wild West show into a crime scene, while in "The Silent Land," a librarian obsessed with the town of March Magna's cemetery is found dead on top of a grave, and the detectives encounter the town's ghastly history of murder, haunted inns, and cursed sanatoriums.

"Filled with odd and likeable characters, some crackin' mysteries, and a nice dollop of humor. Mystery fans will have a great time watching this wonderful series…. As always, Acorn's transfers for Midsomer Murders never miss: they're superlative."—DVD Talk

"Superbly acted and filmed, and a great joy to watch."—British Heritage
