For those new to the series, I would recommend viewing the series in the order in which it was aired, not by the consecutive order of the Set numbers. For instance, "Set 5" is actually Season 1 which aired in 1998. "Set 4" is mostly Season 5 which aired in 2002. Below, is an overview for your viewing convenience.

Whilst this isn't a saga, I do think a production of this quality deserves to be viewed in the correct order. Happy sleuthing!
They have a formula that works and they are sticking to it. This show is thoroughly enjoyable and quite addictive.
GREAT twists, my other half is a retired detective and he LOVES trying to figure out 'who done it'
This set of episodes is both witty and entertaining, as it is intelligent. I fell in love with this show by accident and have enjoyed each episode I have watched thereafter. Each episode stands out on its own.
Death's Shadow takes place in the town of Badger's Drift and an unsolved death from 30 years before.
Strangler's Wood involves the strangling of a spokeswoman and Brazillian cigarettes, which brings up unsolved strangulations of years before.
Blood Will Out- involves rival clans and long time secrets.
BeYond the Grave- Formers Fawlty Towers actress Prunella Scales stands out in this episode involving ghosts and shadows of the past and present.
The characters are all well drawn, and the chemistry between Barnaby and Troy is a father/son, mentor/prodigy one.
All are well done. If you are into British Mysteries, like me, you'll find yourself trying to figure out the identity of the killer.
In these episodes, long-buried secrets are at the heart of more than one murder, so investigative police work means hours spent reviewing archival material while sifting through ancient artifacts - activities sure to stir the hearts of history buffs and Anglophiles alike. This series is well crafted - with great showmanship, fine actors including the many familiar faces of character actors, beautiful bucolic settings in southern England, plenty of interesting artifacts and fine architecture - welcome to fantasy-land my friends.

But it is good entertainment if not good value. Good acting, good mysteries, and a bit of humour stirred in.
