I love the tranquil beauty of an English village, quiet and serene with the tradition of afternoon tea and cakes, reserved manners and occasionally, a spot of Murder.
In the seemingly quiet village of Midsomer County there are all too often secrets at the base of murder and mayhem. It is the odd case that plagues the minds of the constabulary, until Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby (John Nettles) is on the task.
In Midsomer Murders - Set 18, Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby uses his razor sharp senses and gut intuition to solve the crimes without the aid of high tech equipment and teams of “super geeks”. In the English tradition of honest investigation and leaving no stone unturned, we learn that not all is as it seems, the obvious villain is often just a pawn in the game, and the innocent may have a darker side.
Chief Inspector Barnaby has, in these three chilling tales of crime, many suspects, and almost no clues. I have been a longtime fan of murder mysteries, and I appreciate stories that have many facets, twists and plot changes, which this series has plenty of. I also like the fact that the grisliness of the crime is left to imagination; you never see too much blood or carnage, which if you watch alot of American TV, that’s all there seems to be. I watched this series with my wife and kids, and they were just as riveted to their seats as I was. Midsomer Murders - Set 18 is the most recent addition to the U.S. release of the series.
Acorn media brings us this wonderful DVD set, which includes three murder mysteries sure to entertain the sleuth in all in a three-disc collection: "Small Mercies", "The Creeper", and "The Great and The Good".
