Storyline

A stabbing in a nearby village brings Barnaby into contact with people fighting for and against the building of a supermarket on the site of an abandoned mill. The victim was known to many people in the village, but under at least four different names. Barnaby isn't sure the victim's death is directly related to the controversial development or to the reason behind the man's many different names, which isn't all that savory.

Tittilatingly funny
13 December 2009 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Country Matters was slightly out of the ordinary for MM. Obiously the team were a bit bored and made this episode with tongue in cheek! Drily funny, it deals with those grave matter of sex and murder with a bit of frivolity which might be unbecoming the Middle cLasses of Midsomer but makes everything a great send up and a real hoot. One of the best episodes. There is also the use of actors and actresses already known to friends of PBS English series such as Inspector Morse. Because IMDb has never liked a pithy comment where several hundred words will do I have to continue with this just to meet the minimum amount of lines. IMDb would never have allowed Pauline Kael in her more pithily scathing moments to submit her comments!
