Storyline

DCI Barnaby finds himself in charge of investigating The Creeper, a man who has been entering peoples homes in the dead of night, after the Chief Constable becomes the latest victim. It all becomes more serious when after one of the burglaries, a man is found dead in his bed. The dead man is David roper, a ghostwriter by profession who was staying with the Chettam family. They had spent the previous evening at the home of Jack Filby who now owned the Chettham estate forcing the family to live in the dower house. Filby and roper had a very loud argument after dinner with Roper, a reformed alcoholic, storming out of the house with a bottle of brandy in hand. He made it back to the dower house and was put to bed. The mystery grows when a second attendee at the same dinner is murdered and the Creeper visits the Barnabys in the dead of night, not to steal anything but to leave behind two clues. The discovery of a Chettham family secret, the second death and a bit of DNA testing not only ... Written by garykmcd

Two plots that collide into one: in "The Creeper," someone is going into the homes of the wealthy during the night and robbing them. One of the people robbed is the Chief Constable. He assigns DCI Barnaby to the case.

After one particular burglary, a man is found dead -- David Roper, a ghostwriter who was visiting the Chettam family. Everyone had spent an evening at the home of Jack Filby, the now-owner of the Chettam estate, with the family having had a reversal of fortunes and living in another house on the estate.

Roper is a recovering alcoholic, but after a huge fight with Filby, he grabs a bottle of brandy and runs out of the house. A second murder, from the same group that attended the dinner, is murdered. The Creeper then breaks into the Barnaby home and leaves two clues.

What follows is the discovery of a family secret people are eager to cover up. Did The Creeper commit the second murder? Barnaby has to sort it all out.

This is a somewhat ordinary Midsomer Mystery, but it sports a good cast: Jenny Agutter, Amanda Ryan, and Barbara Jefford. I figure in 12 seasons they can't all be winners, and Nettles and Jane Wymark as Joyce Barnaby always are fun.
