Storyline

Barnaby and Troy investigate an apparent suicide that is just a tad too elaborate for them to accept at face value. The man had been under treatment for depression, his wife had recently divorced him and he owed money to a good many people. Barnaby's doubts are confirmed when the autopsy reveals the man was drugged. There are no end of suspects: the ex-wife, her soon to be new husband who also happens to be a dispensing chemist and the doctor and counselor who treated him at a nearby clinic. When other residents of Misomer Worthy are killed, the detectives must try to determine the common link among all of the victims. Written by garykmcd

the solution is ludicrous and completely preposterous
7 June 2013 | by (Silicon Valley, California) – See all my reviews

My wife and I have watched dozens of episodes of Midsomer Murders, and we have enjoyed all of them until this episode. While I agree with the statements made by the two previous reviewers that Midsomer Murders "looks as good as any made-for-TV drama you'll ever see" and that "the series has very high production values & top notch acting." And I also with the statement that it was "especially brilliantly acted by those playing the murderer or murderers." Yes, these statements are true, but the previous two reviewers also say that "some elements defy credibility" and are "a bit far-fetched" and "absurdly incredible." They also say that the first murder had "only the flimsiest of motives." These statements are also true, and in fact these are very charitable statements. My wife and I both think that it would be far more accurate to say that the solution to this particular murder mystery is ludicrous and completely preposterous. It is completely beyond belief, and it is an insult to the other episodes of Midsomer Murders that we have seen. It is, in fact, completely ridiculous.
