Storyline

DCI John Barnaby arrives in Causton on his cousin Tom's retirement. Jones misses his old boss and the two men do not gel, especially as Barnaby seems dismissive of Jones' efforts to restore a vintage car once driven by local racer Duncan Palmer for a classic car competition hosted at her school by frosty headmistress Harriet Wingate. Palmer faked his death in the 1960s but was actually found dead in Midsomer some years later. His old team-mate Peter Fossett is judging the contest and the entrants include Peter's brisk, bossy daughter Kate Cameron and her ex-husband Jamie, now in love with Harriet's shy daughter Jessica. Kate will do anything to win, enlisting the help of the other judge, radio D.J. Dave 'Doggy' Day, who is found murdered. Soon after another young man is killed, who turns out to be involved with Kate's precocious schoolgirl daughter Charlotte in drug dealing.

Without Nettles - the whole thing can be put to rest!
9 July 2012 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Midsomer Murders is John Nettles. Or at least 50 % of it. Replacing Nettles is like replacing Bergerac with...some other guy. It makes no sense. This changing is obviously just to milk the cow dry. "There still is some more milk and we need to get it out". Well. Don't. Put Midsomer to sleep! It's been around for 15 years. I can see why Nettles give it up. I just can't see why the producers don't see it. I hope we will see Nettles again, after a long and deserved vacation. He's been an attraction on TV all the way back from "A family at war". Now, that said, I still vote a "4". Almost all the things that we know from the "old" series is still there. but I cannot put the finger on exact what is missing, except from Nettles. It's more boring. Maybe it have been boring all the way back, that Nettles have been carrying the show on his own shoulders?
