Show Summary

Welcome to the Midsomer Murders guide at TV.com.

This English crime drama series, based on books by Caroline Graham, is filmed mostly in the villages and towns of the rural counties of Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. John Nettles played Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby of Causton CID, a laconic, down-to-earth detective who faced many ingenious and remarkable murders — usually several in each episode — amid the eccentric denizens of Middle England. Barnaby's partners in detection were Sergeants Gavin Troy (Daniel Casey), Dan Scott (John Hopkins) and Ben Jones (Jason Hughes). Other regulars included Tom's wife Joyce (Jane Wymark) and his daughter Cully (Laura Howard). In 2011, Nettles left the show, and Tom Barnaby was replaced by his cousin, DCI John Barnaby (Neil Dudgeon).

Midsomer Murders has been sold to more than 200 countries around the world. The show is made by Bentley Productions for ITV.

    • DCI Barnaby, grow a backbone!

      5.0
      I used to love this show but less and less. It's unbelievable that DCI John Barnaby would have no more backbone to stand up to his lazy wife who smilingly orders him around like a child! After solving a Vintage Murder, he comes home to his lazy wife relaxing in a chair who proceeds to tell him to do this and that. Any man who let's himself be treated like this doesn't deserve respect.moreless
    • Utterly Disgusted with a programme that dosent portray real life in the Uk

      7.5
      I am amazed that even though we battled to get this series set in darkest Africa , lots of African people , I find that we need some jihadists and an Islam place of worship , there is no lesbian or homosexual activity and in the next series we need the lead detective to have a homosexual relationship with his subordinate and also a few of the resident need to be alcoholics and a lot of animal activists to be more involved , green peace , the SAS and there is no mention of immigrants or corrupt politicians ,It is racist and has no place on television , I am disgusted that drug addiction of white people is not mentioned in the scrip'smoreless
    • I can't be the only one who has noticed this!

      8.0
      Has anyone else noticed that the actor playing DCI JOHN Barnaby in the later episodes, is the same guy who plays Daniel (the lecherous gardener) in Garden of Death in the earlier episodes with Tom? Not that I mind, I like the actor in question, it was just jarring to see him as a moon-shining perv :P
    • I love this show!

      Midsomer Murders does cozy mysteries right. Mystery, humour, characters that you love. I hope it goes on forever. But, I'm glad I don't live in Midsomer. :)
    • Best Show Ever!!
