Plot is great but...
3 March 2013 | by (Florida, United States) – See all my reviews

The "American" accents in the episode are positively cringe-worthy if you are an American. They use all the correct verbiage, sort of, but the accents sound like the actors learned them while watching Madonna perform Shakespeare. For me at least, it took me completely out of the drama and I could not enjoy this particular episode. In general, I enjoy every thing about Midsomer murders. The characters of Barnaby and Jones (as well as Barnaby's family and the medical examiner)are stellar as always and even though they've been on the air for so long, they still manage to come up with new motivations and means for each murder. Normally the guest cast is amazing and recognizable from the pool of British actors that you have seen hundreds of times on both the big and small screen. This episode just fell a bit short but if you are from anywhere but America, you probably won't even notice the accents. But if you are, it's like nails on a chalkboard.
