Storyline

While taking a week off to move into their new home, Barnaby takes time to visit his aunt, Alice Bly, who is staying at a local convalescent home for a few weeks. She tells him that a resident died there the previous evening and at least one other resident believes it was murder. When the home's administrator tells Barnaby that residents' personal effects are going missing, he gets Troy to look into the goings on at the manor. When a second resident is found dead soon after, Barnaby begins to suspect that something is amiss. Written by garykmcd

you become invisible
11 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favourite episodes of Midsummer Murders, I think that as the series has run the episodes are stretched a bit thin over 2 hours but this one that keeps your interest, It is memorable for a great line of dialogue when Nigel Davenport, as a resident of the retirement home, says the main thing to know is that as you get older, or to a certain age, you become invisible. This, in the UK, is very true and a sad reflection of how older people are perceived in society to-day, the concept that that a whole generation of citizens just disappear as regards to the younger members of society and the older you get the more invisible you become.
