Storyline

DCI Tom Barnaby and DS Ben Jones investigate the death of Simon Bright who is found dead inside an old World War II vintage Humber parked at an abandoned airfield. From all appearances, the death appears to be a suicide, but the pathologist determines that the man suffered a severe blow to the dead and may in fact have been unconscious when he died of carbon monoxide poisoning. Simon Bright's girlfriend, Laura Sharp, is nowhere to be found, but the death of the aging village Lothario and the attempted murder of another of her friends narrows the list of possible murderers somewhat. Barnaby is convinced that one of Laura's ex-lovers is responsible but given her rather active life, the question becomes which one? Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Barnaby and Jones drive to the airfield to look at the second body, the car arrives in heavy rain: there are puddles on the ground and distant rumbles of thunder can be heard. But when they get out of the car a few seconds later, the ground is dry and people in the distance are casting shadows, showing that the weather has suddenly become sunny. See more »

A disappointing start of the season
26 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

I found this episode to be incredibly drawn out with largely uninteresting characters as suspects and a most disappointing conclusion. The mystery girl who seems to catch everyone's fancy is never entirely convincing, and the attempts to make her so are strained and rather quite boring. The Dance with the Dead lacks the energy and charisma that make Midsomer Murders so captivating. I found myself wondering midway through if it would EVER pick up the pace and show some promise, but sadly it did not. Tom Barnaby and Ben Jones manage to carry out their investigation but with some fairly gaping deficits in detective work, such as the early-on discovery that a photograph of the mystery girl was framed and placed prominently on her unrelated landlady's bedside table!!
