Storyline

During a local eclipse of the sun, Jeremy Harper, one of a group of amateur astronomers, is killed on Moonstone Ridge by a blow to the head with a meteorite. Jeremy had rowed with Laurence Janson, head of the university observatory over plans to extend the observatory onto the ridge but was unaware of his wife Catrina's affair with Janson. Local clairvoyant Mags Dormer had warned Jeremy of impending disaster and tells Barnaby that Moonstone Ridge is cursed, since Catrina's sister Mary, wife of pharmacist Harry Dutta, also died there some years earlier. Then other murders occur, of members of the group who were opposed to Janson's plans but had also made a discovery of their own, leading to a resolution of the case written in the stars.

I'm a huge fan of Midsomer Murders, but there was no one to root for this time...
10 October 2014 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of Midsomer Murders, but there was no one to root for this time. I wouldn't have cared if almost all of them had been victims. (Sadly, the one character I did kind of like was one of the ones that biffed it.)

I watch and re-watch MM, but I doubt I'll choose this episode again. As usual, the cinematography is fantastic and the main characters are fantastic, but the personalities given to most of the other characters made them and their relationships too unbelievable and unlikeable to care about. I got bored.

Also, I could have done w/o the vocab descending into the sewer. The high-road vocab has always been one of the awesome aspects of MM.

Anyway, if you're a real fan, this is worth watching. If you're a new-comer to the series, hopefully you don't start here. Most of the episodes are entertaining, intelligent, educational, and fun and worth your time. You should watch from the beginning of the series. Hopefully they'll keep making more.
