  • I found this episode dull and boring in the extreme with a predictable plot and even more predictable outcome but fans who enjoy magicians and such will probably enjoy it much more.

    It's almost Halloween and Barnaby and Jones are called upon to investigate the murder of Jean Wildacre, a magician's on-stage assistant who is also a member of the dubious Midsomer Magic Circle. Turns out the Jean, who died in the standard magic cabinet, met her end when the supposedly retractable spikes were deliberately jammed and coated with poison from the Poison Dart Frog. When two other murders occur and it is found that the same type of poison has been used, the villagers are scared that the Midsomer Magic Circle is somehow involved and become superstitious and scared while Tom has to deal with this at the same time as hunting for a murderer who doesn't seem as though he is going to stop anytime soon.

    Mediocre in my opinion. This wonderful show is capable of so much better than this.
