The English village mystery gets a contemporary spin in this hit British television series. Bucolic settings harbor macabre crimes and eccentric characters that are no match for nice-guy detective Tom Barnaby (John Nettles, Bergerac) and his eager assistant, Sergeant Troy (Daniel Casey, The Wingless Bird). Charming locations, dry humor, and an outstanding ensemble cast have earned the series a worldwide following. Guest stars include Amanda Root, Perdita Weeks, John Sessions, Kate Buffery, and Ronald Pickup. 5 cases, 8½ hrs, 3 DVDs, SDH.

Death and Dreams
In Midsomer Worthy, debt-ridden Martin Wroath is found shot to death, having apparently rigged up a way to trigger a shotgun with his toe. When rope mysteriously goes missing and two more victims are hanged, Barnaby follows the string of suspects to a horrifying conclusion.
Painted in Blood
Joyce Barnaby is enjoying an outdoor watercolor class in Midsomer Florey until she discovers the body of a fellow student, who has been stabbed to death. Two National Intelligence Squad agents quickly step in to take over the case, which strangely intersects with Barnaby's purse-snatching investigation.
A Tale of Two Hamlets
Wealthy young Larry Smith of the Smythe-Webster family is killed in an explosion, leading Barnaby and Troy into a centuries-old feud between the villages of Upper and Lower Warden Manor. The detectives begin to wonder-just how far will this family go to protect its money and power?
Birds of Prey
Investment in a secret invention leads to an apparent suicide in Midsomer Magna. Then a villager who has been stealing peregrine falcon eggs from the inventor's wife is also found dead. Barnaby and Troy investigate a possible link between the two strange cases.
