Continuity: Mildred Danvers was found dead with barbiturates in her system, according to Dr. Bullard. DC Ben Jones presents a bottle of Valium (in an evidence bag) to DCI Tom Barnaby, and they discuss the possibility of the Valium being used to kill Mildred Danvers. The problem is that Valium is not a barbiturate; it's in a class of drugs known as benzodiazepines.See more »

Skimmington has its problems, 7 June 2015
Author: blanche-2 from United States

In "Four Funerals and a Wedding," the Barnaby family attends the annual Skimmington Fair, with Joyce's mother in tow. The Skimmington Fair is a men against woman thing, coming out of some old treatment of women in the town.

Joyce always says that murder follows her husband, not the other way around, and today is no exception. The first murder is that of Mildred Danvers, from an overdose of barbiturates slipped into her brandy.

There is one other death that leads Barnaby and Jones closer to a solution, part of which is the result of a long-ago event. Four deaths in all.

Lots of adultery in Skimmington, a doctor who falls under suspicion, and the sharp eye of Mrs. Danvers all figure into the mystery.

There were holes in the plot but the photography and atmosphere were great. Still worth seeing.
