Characters Certainly a Bit Stock, 20 February 2016
Author: Hitchcoc from United States

Considering the plot of this episode, it's my belief that this is just too long. As a result, there are long talky periods where little happens. Once a character has been established, we don't need more exposition. I think first of all of the farmer, the father of the boy who is getting married and the jilted husband. He is full of anger and there are several scenes that don't progress the plot, just reaffirm the same point. The smug father of the bride, an acquaintance of Barnaby's is much the same too. He is full of himself and he resists helping in the case, enjoying casting barbs at Tom. Unlike most of the Midsomer Murder episodes, I was pretty sure who the murderer was and I was proved correct. I could go into more, but others have already presented some of the shortcomings. I agree that a high standard has been set and the last two shows don't stack up.
