Storyline

Cully is finally getting married and Tom Barnaby is anxious to keep costs down as Joyce brings in a camp wedding planner. More dramatic is the union between aristocrat Ned Fitzroy and Beth Porteous when maid of honour Marina is found skewered to a wardrobe in one of the bedrooms. The Fitzroy family's lordly attitude does not help the investigation and then estate manager Robin Lawson and old family servant Peggy are both murdered. Barnaby discovers that both were aware of a sinister Fitzroy family secret, culminating in the events of the blood wedding. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quality humour on the back of the class system
10 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Saw what must have been a repeat of this episode a short while back. Wife is very keen on this series and I have to admit being progressively drawn into watching too. What is so good about this particular episode is the humour generated by the English class system coming to life on the back of the longbow and the battle of Crecy and all that.

This sort of knock about stuff really makes me laugh. I can watch those haughty faces (that takes some quality acting) brushing off the police again and again with their laconic, sarcastic, pithy comments.

Perhaps the Fitzroys date back to the Norman era - who knows - their attitude seems to point to that. References to fighting the Welsh. I live on the English Welsh border and we tease each other. Jones' pronunciation of Colquhoun and the reaction to it are typical.

Against this background we have two weddings. The much lower key (lets say Anglo Saxon) wedding and the 'landed gentry' wedding. I don't actually care who the murderer is when the basic plot, production (bring back Brian True-May) and the acting are so great.
