Trivia

The village of Dunstan, where this episode takes place, seems to be the village where Detective Sergeant Jones grew up, as he attended the same primary school and is acquainted with several of the protagonists from childhood. The Sergeant's Welsh accent is true to character though, since his family moved from Wales to this village when the Sergeant was a child. See more »

Creepiest Midsomer I've Seen
9 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We've been watching "Midsomer Murders" in reruns on various PBS stations, so it's a random selection, mainly from the earlier seasons. We've come to really enjoy the humanity and good humor of the lead characters, and usually the stories are both intriguing and fun.

"Left for Dead" was well done as usual, but easily the creepiest and most unsettling of those we've seen. As others have pointed out, it ends up going in a kind of cheap "horror film" direction at the end, but at the same time was both harrowing and rather sad. Suspenseful, yes, but not much fun. Guess I prefer the ones where people just act like idiots and get caught!
