Where do I begin? I've enjoyed so many hours of "Midsomer Murders," from the very first season and much of the very latest season, and cannot recommend it too highly. The series is beautifully photographed in rural England, exploring picturesque villages, churches, and graveyards, in episodes filled with magnificent greenery and beautiful flowers, crisp and brilliant British actors and actresses, and truly suspenseful stories that do keep you guessing until the last "reveal." John Nettles is superb as DCI Barnaby, Jane Wymark is lovely as his wife Joyce, and Laura Howard is delightful as their daughter Cully. Barnaby's sergeants over the years are always brilliantly cast, providing some time comic relief and romantic interest. ---- The whole series has the highest production values, and a reliable comfortable feeling that makes one feel a part of Midsomer County with its quirky and often murderous inhabitants and the gentlemen police who solve the bizarre and intricate crimes they commit. --- In later seasons, when a new Barnaby replaces Nettles, it is Neil Dudgeon who fills the bill ably with his own distinct personality and charm. Indeed, charm is a word one could overuse in a review of "Midsomer Murders" because charm the series has in abundance, and consistency. I rank it right up there with Miss Fisher, Morse, Lewis, Marple, Poirot, and Endeavor --- the finest entertainment -- sophisticated, intelligent, insightful and yet keeping the harsh real world at a great remove. You feel sort of safe watching "Midsomer Murders." It makes you want to move to the UK, or to live there forever in Midsomer country, in one's dreams.
