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.

Murder and Masonic Rituals
11 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode had lost of things in it.

It starts off with a group of men meeting in China and Alan King dies in a car accident. They are involved in King's Crystal a business that makes items of glass.

Six months later Hilary King marries her husbands brother Charles King. Ian, Hilary's son does not like his uncle/stepfather Charles. He also believes he had something to do with his father's death.

At the wedding of Hilary and Charles a group of protesters from the factory show up. They are mad because the factory is going to open up in China and have the products made there. The former employees are getting cheated on money they should get and things like pensions. They feel a man named Baxter that is an accountant was embezzling money owed them.

This group of businessmen are Masons. They meet and have rituals. Ian the son is not a Mason but he becomes one in order to get closer to his stepfather. Ian gets initiated and they show the ritual. It is said in this episode the Masons are not a secret society but are full of secrets.

So this in interesting in many aspects. One is murder, then closing a business causing the loss of jobs and routing them to China, Masonic rituals and secrets pledges. Barnaby's daughter Cully is also in a play in Midsomer which helps Barnaby get incites into the case he is investigating.
