From season 10 of Midsomer Murders, "The Animal Within," starring John Nettles and Jason Hughes.
Lisa Eichorn plays Faith Alexander, an American who comes to England to meet her Uncle Rex. As it turns out, Uncle Rex is missing and when he's found, he's dead. And the place is loaded with suspects - Uncle Rex told practically everybody he knew (especially if they needed to be paid for something) that he or she was his heir. After the eighth will turns up, well, there's a problem. Then a couple of other corpses turn up, a massive con is uncovered, as well as some sexy photos, and DCI Barnaby's head is swimming. It falls to him to figure out the whole thing.
This is a really excellent entry into the series, with some strong suspects and good performances.
Very intriguing, and kept me interested straight through.
