Barnaby and Jones (Neil Dudgeon and Jason Hughes) investigate a series of deaths foreshadowed by the appearance of a headless horseman; the demise of a defense attorney whose client, a convicted murderer, has just returned home from prison; and the murder of a journalist with chilling ties to a 1960s horror film starring a local actress. Guest stars include James Callis, Kerry Fox, Paul Ritter, Sinéad Cusack, and Harriet Walter. 3 cases, 4 ½ hrs, 2 Blu-ray discs, SDH. Mature audiences.
Disc 1
The Dark Rider
As two prominent families plan a reenactment of a Civil War battle between their ancestors, the aristocratic DeQuettevilles are haunted by a headless horseman, rumored to foretell the death of those who see him. Barnaby and Jones delve into historical rivalries and family feuds to expose the phantom rider and end the trail of carnage.

Disc 2
Murder of Innocence
When convicted murderer Grady Felton returns to Midsomer after his incarceration for killing a young boy-Jones's first murder case-the whole town is set on edge. Felton seems to be out for revenge when his lawyer dies suspiciously, but he has a solid alibi. Then Felton himself is targeted. As the death toll mounts, can Barnaby and Jones discover the truth behind the killings?

Disc 3
Death and the Divas
A journalist writing a book about two sisters-one a Hollywood superstar, the other a failed actress-is murdered while watching a cult horror film starring one of them. As Midsomer Langley's film festival kicks off, more deaths follow, each imitating the sisters' horror films. The detectives dig up family secrets and bitter resentments as they race to prevent the killer's encore.

Disc 4
Rare Bird
A row between keen birdwatchers in Midsomer-in-the-Marsh turns nasty when their president is killed. Patrick Morgan met his death while hoping to sight a rare bird, but is his obsession with ornithology to blame - or something more sinister?

Appears to be a change in producers and styles
By Faith from WA on 1/2/2014

We have viewed two of the three in Midsomer 23 BluRay. Each only has about 8-10 characters, is a very tight mystery without the village life we so enjoyed about the previous ones. I think we will view the next series before buying them. I don't think I would watch these two episodes again. Maybe it is a different direction in which this producer is taking viewers. It is much more like other mysteries and seems to have lost that 'time out of time' feeling of the previous series with the deft British humor appearing regularly. It wouldn't matter whether this one was viewed in bluRay or not, for the scenery is not in the forefront as it was previously. We have purchased all the previous series as they came out. BRING back the previous producer!!!

Great Program BUT ONLY 3 episodes?????
By British on 1/23/2014

Loved this show since Set-1. Have ALL the DVD's. Still, I've always been underwhelmed that each 'SET' collection had only 4 episodes ... BUT NOW ... Set 23 contains only 3 episodes, and even more puzzling, the BluRay Set 23 is TWO discs! That's hilarious. I could fit 3 HD episodes on a dinky little thumb drive, yet alone 2 BluRay DVD's! WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?!?!? Poor value for the cost of the purchase ... but I'll continue to enjoy the programs ... even the few that are released on each new 'Set'.

Love the show

We were concerned with the change in stars but they have done a great job of incorporating new characters.

I like the series, each individual is unique and they compliment each other on their skills of acting.

Midsomer Murders Set 23 Disappoints
By Loren from AZ on 1/24/2014

Sadly, we were quite disappointed with set 23. First, instead of the usual 4 episodes, the set only contained 3 a fact that was not made clear in the offering from Acorn. One wonders if this is the end of the series. Second, with the exception of one of the episodes, they seem to have lost some of the charm and character both in terms of the plot and the actors' interpretation of the main characters. Should another season be made available next year, we will likely not purchase it. It's sad. Thank goodness we still have all of the previous seasons to enjoy from time to time.

Midsomer Murders, Set 23
By James from KS on 1/23/2014

This series continually delivers high quality crime mysteries and solid acting. What I appreciate is the actors appearing in these productions look like normal people, not fashion models.

Not much fun. No fun at all, in fact.
By Neil from MN on 9/24/2013

The earlier Midsommers may have been about murder, but they were light in tone and entertaining to watch. With the new Barnaby it's gotten much darker, violent, explicit and the themes are all too serious. I doubt we will even finish Set 22 - we don't want to see real suffering, after all.

Only two discs?
By Larry from TN on 12/31/2013

When each disc has only one episode it is easier to keep track of those viewed.
