Midsomer Murders

Postby Bouncy Castle » Wed Mar 23, 2011 2:24 pm

Don't forget that it's the first of the new series, with Neil Dudgeon in the lead, on ITV1 tonight.

Love me some Midsomer mayhem! :D

Advice for a long life:

Never buy a house in Albert Square.
Never travel on a train with a Belgian detective.
Never make friends with Jessica Fletcher.
And never, ever visit the village of Midsomer - murder capital of the Universe. :shock:

Maybe if there was more cultural diversity, they wouldn't all be so angry?

Actually, I think Midsomer is a county.

He's been reinstated, but is to stand down at the end of the series.

Yeah, it is a county. The villages include Causton, where Barnaby is located, Midsomer Parva, Badger's Drift, and God knows how many more others.

BTW, my mother loves Midsomer Murders, and while I don't watch the whole thing, I sometimes love watching certain guest stars, like Peter Davison, Honor Blackman, Gareth Thomas, and so on.

Oh, and I really love this insult from the episode with Honor Blackman in it, where one of the characters calls either Barnaby or his assistant 'a right constable'. Pronounce it out loud, and you'll see what I mean... :lol:

I always wonder when Midsomer is going to run out of citizens to be murdered.

Also, if you were the murderer, wouldn't you just murder Barnaby? Surely that's the most intelligent thing to do.

Well, in one recent episode, someone tried to drop roofing tiles on his head before they attacked anyone else. He only just dodged out of the way.

I didn't watch all of that episode, but what I did, especially of the ending, made me shudder. Eugenics + incest = major squick... :shock:
