Starring John Nettles as Detective Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby and Daniel Casey as his sidekick Detective Sergeant Gavin Troy, Midsomer Murders, Set 5 features five episodes from the series. A mysterious death at a New Age retreat puts Barnaby and Troy on the case in "Death in Disguise;" "Written in Blood" finds a local amateur author strangled to death following a visit from a well-known novelist; a woman insists the police look into the unexpected death of her best friend until she is killed as well in "The Killings at Badger's Drift;" "Faithful Unto Death" leads Barnaby and Troy into a strange labyrinth of faked kidnappings and real murder; and the sudden deaths of two cousins remove the cover from a wealth of scandalous behavior in "Death of a Hollow Man."

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Eccentric characters, strange murders, and lush countryside vistas combine to make this British crime drama -- based on the collection of books by Caroline Graham -- a favorite among mystery fans. Four of the episodes included in this five-story set aired on the BBC during the show's first season in 1998, but the first, "The Killings at Badger's Drift," serves as the series pilot and aired in March ’97. This initial mystery deals with an elderly woman who suspiciously dies of a broken neck, although the local doctor believes she committed suicide. Next up for Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby (John Nettles) and his young partner, Sergeant Gavin Troy (Daniel Casey), is "Written in Blood," a whodunit wherein the secretary of a readers' circle is found murdered after the group's meeting with a bestselling novelist. A woman is found dead in the river -- but she didn't drown -- in "Death of a Hollow Man." And there's something peculiar afoot in "Faithful unto Death," an episode involving a lethal road collision, a poisoning, and a missing businessman's wife (played by The Inspector Lynley Mysteries star Lesley Vickerage). Finally, in "Death in Disguise," a man living at a new age commune is found dead at the bottom of a staircase, and Barnaby and Troy must figure out whether it's an accident or a murder.

    This is a great British mystery series

    Midsomer Murder is a wonderful British mystery series. John Nettles is excellent as DCI tom Barnaby as is Daniel Casey as Detective Sergeant Gavin Troy. Also frequently seen are Barnaby's wife and daughter Joyce and Cully played by Laura Wymark and Laura Howard. The juxtaposition of family and solving crime is very cool as is the way Barnaby's family life plays out.
    This set includes the pilot and first four episodes of the series. One of the really good parts of this show is the way the character of Troy matures as the show runs. The character left after several years to become a DCI himself and it is good to see real life type situations in a TV series. I have really enjoyed this whole series and these are very good episodes. If you like British mysteries with a hint of village life you will enjoy Midsomer Murder

    MidSomer Murders Set 5

    As with the other MidSomer Murders sets we've purchased, this set matches them in quality. The series was wonderful when it was broadcast on PBS and we love watching the episodes again now. Good plots; acting and visual settings. Well worth having in our opinon.

    Mystery Buff's Goldmine

    Midsomer Murders is a series of mysteries taking place in England. The draw for most viewers are the predominance of clues and slow precise expert unraveling by Dectective chief Inspector Barnaby and his side kick. It is full of human foilbles and realistic motives. Their is humor, tragedy and the drama of ordinary characters who elicit hate and sympathy as their lives unfold. You literally have to listen to every word and really have no clue as to the murderer(s) are until the very end when all fits into place. Having viewed the whole series I look forward to replaying all a second time. I highly recommend this series.

    Always Delightful

    My husband and I are Midsomer addicts, and have preordered set 12.
    We cannot wait until they come in, and we get through a year's series in a few nights.
