About the series
Based on the crime-novel series by author Caroline Graham, “Midsomer Murders” follows the efforts of Detective Chief Inspector John Barnaby and his partner, DS Charlie Nelson, to solve crimes that occur in the wealthy, isolated English county of Midsomer, a picturesque and peaceful place on the outside but one filled with amoral and snobbish eccentrics with all kinds of vices.

This story features the first appearance of DS Charlie Nelson portrayed by Gwilym Lee.
Apr. 1 – “Let Us Prey”
A series of murders in Midsomer St. Claire seem to be inspired by macabre images on a medieval fresco recently discovered in the church crypt.

Apr. 8 – “Wild Harvest”
When wealthy farmer Martin Strickland is covered in truffle oil and mauled to death by a wild boar, the investigation leads to restaurant Wyvern House and its tyrannical celebrity chef Ruth Cameron.
