The bell ringers of the picturesque village of Midsomer Wellow are gearing up for a major bell ringing competition, which they intend to win. They practice and practice and practice until they are exhausted but that isn't the worst thing that happens as, one by one, the ringers are being knocked off. Barnaby and Troy have several theories. Are they being murdered because of the upcoming bell ringing competition (hardly likely) or is there a deeper and darker reason behind the deaths? Investigations reveal that the vicar of the village was murdered and shoved down the well in the year 1840 and Barnaby wonders whether there is some connection as local bell ringers were implicated in that crime.
This one will keep you on the edge of your seats as you never know who is going to die next and trying to figure out who the killer or killers are is quite a chore in itself! A very entertaining episode.
