with a new main character, MidSomer
Murders has changed it's plot in that there is no one single murder or
murderer, nor are the suspects completely innocent. All the suspects are guilty of something to
some degree and hiding something they don't want the public to know, it only a
question of who truly committed murder, who had the motive and the means. This tactic usually confuses the audience to
mislead them to prevent them from discovering the real murderer too early. The HD (and HD shot) picture look as good as
the show has in recent years and lossless Stereo sound has some Pro Logic
surrounds and is well recorded. Extras
include bonus conversations and trailers.
