MidSomer Murders – Set 15 (Acorn Media DVD)

Picture: B-     Sound: B-     Extras: B     Episodes: A-



Detective Chief Inspector Barnaby is back and out to catch those who would disturb the peaceful (or unpeaceful) county of MidSomer.  In the beautiful county of MidSomer things aren't always what they seem, and hardly a day goes by without the detectives not finding a dead body the next morning.  Along with Detective Sergeant Jones, Barnaby race to find the clues, to find out what really happened, before another murder occurs.  Welcome back to the very long running series MidSomer Murders now on Set 15 (!) from Acorn Media on DVD.
Planning for weddings can be a killer... but in this set, there IS a killer in the wedding!  As couples set up for holy matrimony, a killer is among one of the guests... but who can do such a thing and why?  Truths and hidden pasts are revealed and soon uncovered.  As Barnaby and Jones crash the wedding, age old family feuds occur (adding to the confusion) Barnaby must determined which is a row and who has a good enough reason to have committed murder.
If you like murder and mystery with a British charm, then this series is for you, inspired by the books of Caroline Graham of murder and mystery in the quiet English county.  MidSomer has spawned a whole series beyond the original books.  Lurking underneath the quiet, peaceful villages of MidSomer there lurks someone one with an appetite for a bloody murder.  With a calm demeanor (unless it involves his wife or daughter) the character Detective Chief Barnaby with his skills of deduction and reason, uses his wits and charm to solve the case and catch his killer.  With all suspects, all of them have some reason to want the victim dead, but who was it that really that did it?  Extras include photo gallery, behind the scenes documentary with cast, crew and author, explaining how MidSomer became a hit series.
