  • An episode that's hard to forget.

    And the episode is hard to forget mainly because of the Rainbirds - weren't they creepy?? This was the first episode I ever saw of Midsomer and I found it very intriguing and what a twist at the end - where did that come from?

    A well written episode which shows each actor firmly cementing who their character is which is why I think the series is now so popular.

    I like how they give the clues throughout the episode - but who actually recognises them before the ending? No, this episode is hard to beat purely because of the characters that were created, a brilliant start to a brilliant series.
