Storyline

At a Wild West show in Ford Florey, Faye Lennox is murdered. She was the estate manager and lover of unpopular farmer Jack Fincher, who is engaged in a long-standing dispute with neighbour Silas Burbage over a piece of waste-land. Soon afterwards Fincher is lassoed and dragged to his death. There is no shortage of suspects - the Burbage family, long-suffering wife Susan who is seemingly very close to stepson Leo, Dan Malko, who wants the waste-land as a permanent travellers' site and Mary Morgan, whose dog Fincher shot. Jude Langham, a local craftsman who blames Fincher for his father's death, claims to have the document which will settle ownership and he is attacked by an intruder out to steal it. He had made phone calls to the three parties interested in the land just before his attack. But one is also murdered and another person will die before Barnaby works out who is responsible for blood on the saddle. Written by don @ minifie-1

Goofs

In the final 'shootout' Jones finds a Colt SAA 'Peacemaker' loaded with a 9mm/ .38 blank. He takes out the blank and replaces it with a 44-40 WCF LIVE round. You can't put a 44-40 live round into a gun chambered for 9mm. Also inn the UK the guns used in Old West re-enactment are blank firers chambered for 9mm/ .38 and cannot five a live round due to the barrel being fully or partially blocked See more »

Agree With Appraisal of Worst
21 September 2013 | by (Orange County, CA.) – See all my reviews

Totally agree with poster, pjhawken, in that this is the very worst of the Midsomer Murders series. Although I usually soak up episodes time after time after time, it took me four different attempts to get more than 30 minutes through this one.

It starts out with a 'Wild West Show', but one of the immediate problems was the cinematography - they shot on cloudy days and the scenery was garish and unsettling. Also, right from the off it's difficult to discern the "importance" of the plot, and just who, exactly, everyone is. The characters are very difficult to associate with and utterly unappealing.

If you're a hard-core Midsomer fan, this one will leave a bad taste in your mouth.
