Midsomer Murders, an English crime drama series based on books by Caroline Graham, is filmed mostly in the villages and towns of the rural counties of Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. John Nettles plays Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby of the Causton C.I.D., a laconic, down-to-earth detective who faces many ingenious and remarkable murders (usually several in each episode) amid the eccentric denizens of Middle England. For the first twenty-nine episodes Barnaby's partner in detection was Sergeant Gavin Troy, played by Daniel Casey. Troy was then replaced by Sergeant Dan Scott (John Hopkins), who again has been replaced by yet another Sergeant (we first meet him as a DC, Jones, played by Jason Hughes. Other regulars include Tom's wife Joyce (Jane Wymark) and his daughter Cully (Laura Howard) , who sometimes get mixed up in the plot

Midsomer Murders follows the efforts of Detective Chief Inspector John Barnaby to solve crimes that occur in the wealthy, isolated English county of Midsomer, a picturesque and peaceful place on the outside but one filled with amoral and snobbish eccentrics with all kinds of vices.

Humor is a main feature of the series, with many of the actors playing up their high-camp characters. There is often black comedy, such as a woman being murdered with a wheel of cheese, and many scenes are examples of "dramedy". Sometimes they go a bit too far, and of course those are my favorites!

Having read some of the books, I find this show to be excellent with some witty lines thrown in to keep the viewer enthralled.

It is not bad, quite obvious show. But entertaining when you have nothing else to watch. I heard that the Queen Elizabeth is watching this... so, you can guess it is an old fashion detective show :) that doesn't mean it is bad...

This is a good show, although I liked it better with the original DCI Barnaby.

A great mystery series that has certainly stood the test of time. Most episodes are set in fictitious rural English villages where the lives of everyone in the town are intertwined and secrets are divulged over the course of multiple murders. The main character, DCI Barnaby, and his sidekick solve crimes to the backdrop of quaint British culture.
