Storyline

Deserted for years, an historically significant house is coveted by a number of people: a yuppie couple looking for a country home to restore, a local builder and his estate agent partner looking for development rights, and a conservationist. The owner is anxious to sell, but when a couple of deaths occur in the vicinity (and inside the house), things come to a halt while Inspector Barnaby investigates.

Famous Five for grown-ups.
9 August 2012 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Just watching this episode, but don't know how I missed it before. This must be Jones's promotion from uniform to plain clothes detective. He is such a natural! I adore John Nettles, hate Jane Wymark for being Barnaby's on-screen wife. I rarely miss an episode - or the repeats - and want to go there! Midsomer is my fantasy of Mother England, and no doubt the fantasy of many people who still live there. Midsomer Murders is for all those Australians who have never been to England and the best tourist advertisement for those who want to go there. Sadly, they will be disappointed. Stay home and watch Midsomer Murders on the telly and dream... It's Famous Five for grown-ups! Some of the last vestiges of pommy England. And I love it!
