Midsomer Murders: Series 1
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 Emily Mortimer, Jonathan Firth, Elizabeth Spriggs, Anna Massey, Joanna David, Bernard Hepton, and Nicholas Le Prevost. 5 cases, 8½ hrs, 3 DVDs, SDH.
