Barnaby and Scott investigate a death in Midsomer Mere, where villagers seem to have the ability to predict future events. John Ransom's head was covered in scorch marks, the result of his brother Max's research into second sight. Is his death due to a pub brawl with his brother-in-law Ben Kirby over plans for a baptism, or is he a casualty of the bizarre experiments? In the battle between faith and science, even Barnaby thinks he has seen a man somewhere before. It's time to delve into the village's history for clues.moreless

  • When John Ransom is found murdered in the village of Midsomer Mere, Barnaby and Scott not only have to investigate the crime but also a belief that many in the village have the gift of second sight.moreless

    There are a lot of complicated relationships in this episode and a fair amount of trouble between relatives but once you sort that out, it's an excellent episode to watch and even though the ending is fairly predictable, there is a lot of entertainment value too.



    John Ransom is found murdered and it is immediately noted that there are strange looking scorch marks on his head. Barnaby and Scott learn that Ransom was a test subject for his brother, Max, who was conducting experiments into second sight, a gift supposedly shared by several in the village, including, obviously, possibly the dead man himself.



    More enquiries reveal that John Ransom was also having problems with his brother-in-law, Ben Kirby over an upcoming Baptism which was causing major rifts within the family. The question is, were the experiments or the family squabbles connected to the death and who, if anyone actually has the gift of second sight? Watch and see!moreless

    Preaching Pete kills the Ransomes because of their connection/research into \'Second Sight\' (the ability to predict the future). Being a man of God meant that if it could be proven that a supernatural presence was at work then he as a preacher would have no flock at all and religion would be cast aside, so he committed one of the Commandments: thou shall not kill. He uses a candlestick, his hands and a tree branch to commit the murders.moreless
