Episode Summary

EDIT
The Midsomer viallage of March Magna has a plethora of old ghost stories to keep the locals and the tourists happy but it's not such a happy place for Joyce and Cully when they are driving home from a musical recital and have a car accident after Joyce swerves to miss a dark figure on the road. Joyce is convinced that she hit somebody but Tom thinks she was imagining things until a body is found at the local cemetery, the scene of many a "ghostly" sighting over the years. The question is, is this dead body the person whom Joyce thinks she hit on the road or someone else entirely? In fact, did Joyce hit anyone at all or was she really seeing things? Barnaby and Jones have their work cut out trying to unravel the mystery when they find that the dead person was not well liked and the people from the village do not seem keen to help the police with their enquiries.moreless

    It's a while since Cully has been home for a visit and Joyce is delighted to see her. The two attend a musical recital which bores Cully to death but which Joyce enjoys greatly. On the way home along a dark country road, Cully is sleeping until Joyce swerves to miss a figure she sees on the road and ends up running her car into a type of ditch.



    Later, Tom is frustrated as Joyce tries to explain that she saw someone and believes she may have hit them. It is clear that Tom doesn't believe her as nobody has been reported injured or killed. That is until a body is discovered in an old cemetery which was used for the patients of a sanitariummany years previously.



    Perhaps Joyce DID hit and kill someone with her car, but, if that is the case, who put the body in the old graveyard? It is up to Tom and Ben to investigate further and find out if they are dealing with a corpse which died as the result of being hit by a car or whether they have a murderer on their hands.



    A pretty good episode which will keep you guessing throughout and great to see Laura Howard back again in her role as Cully. Well worth a look.moreless
