My fix of multiple murders, people creeping about in the bushes, the cries of peacocks in the night continue through 18 seasons. The joy of British crime, with a little tinge of human interest from babies, wives, dogs, and competitive coworkers. No doubt all these Midsomer villages have the highest murder rates in the entire U.K., and more illicit love affairs around. Of course, they are less gore-filled than the U.S. shows. Only a few spatters of blood, people buried alive, injected with poison, and victims of a few cunning wacky women who kill for love and greed. Love it all, including Sykes, the baby, and all the characters! It's interesting to note that some of these actors have been in many of the seasons of the past.
