Small Mercies

Tonight’s murder is set in a pretty village whose economy has long depended on the tourist trade, in particular on the attractions of its model village and the annual raft race on the river.

The Glitch

A maverick scientist has discovered a fatal flaw in prevailing electromagnetic theory and hence in the binary system. His theories are denounced by his peers in Christchurch College, Oxford, and by the businessman who has funded research and development of a new system for controlling air traffic over the world. Like the Pythagoreans who drowned the student who discovered the irreconcilability of 22/7, it seems that the academy and business are willing to collude in murder in order to sustain their reputations and profit.

Fit For Murder

After a staggering 14 years on the Midsomer Murders set playing DCI Barnaby, actor John Nettles is now saying a fond farewell to his character and cast mates and laying his detective hat to rest for good…but before he does sign off there is one last murder case to solve. Keep your eyes peeled for his younger cousin John Barnaby (played by Neil Dudgeon, who we met earlier in the series). John will take the lead role and position at Causton Police Station.

In tonight’s series final, Barnaby reluctantly accompanies Joyce on a spa weekend to Swavely Manor. But as he attempts to de-stress, a woman is found dead in the floatation chamber. Abandoning the treatments to investigate, Barnaby uncovers a feud between neighbours, money wrangles and the mystery of a half-written novel. Then there’s another death. But his personal worries are never far from the surface and he looks at taking his life into a new direction.
