Storyline

King's Crystal, a glassware factory in Midsomer Magna, faces ruin following the death of its co-owner Alan King. His widow, Hilary, angers her son Ian by marrying Alan's brother Charles, and rumours circulate that Charles and accountant Peter Baxter embezzled funds. When Peter is stabbed to death with a Masonic dagger and Ian starts behaving strangely after finding his father's sketchbook, Barnaby is called. But the answer lies in Cully's new production.

Quotes

DS Ben Jones: I find Shakespeare a bit hard going, to be honest with you, sir. Bit of a snore.
DCI Tom Barnaby: Yeah, well, four hours on a stone seat in the open air, that'll be hard going all right.
DS Ben Jones: Four hours!
DCI Tom Barnaby: Yes, well, unfortunately, Jones, brevity was never the soul of Shakespeare's wit.
DS Ben Jones: Yeah. Sentences longer than Judge Lloyd's.

The Shakespearian element was just a plot device
20 January 2008 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The murder part of the programme was not a "second theme that is inartfully folded in" but an intrinsic part of the whole programme.

The Shakespearian element was just a plot device which helped the detective figure out how the murders took place.

It seems that you watched a show called Midsomer Murders thinking the murder part of it was somehow coincidental.

The show held my interest and whilst not a classic was certainly well crafted and acted.

Perhaps if you had read your TV guide a bit more carefully you would have been able to find viewing more to your liking.
