My sister and I love the Midsomer Murder Series. We have seen most of them and are looking forward to the new episodes. What we love most is that Cully and Joyce have been played by the same actresses. The scenery is a close second. We imagine the beautiful, picturesque countryside in Midsomer is what England looks like--not the barren, dirty streets of London seen in other series such as Murder City or Wire in the Blood. We do have a minor complaint--Barnaby never seems to wear gloves when inspecting a crime scene. He handles all the evidence without compromising the crime scene--Gil Grissom is green with envy!
