Midsomer Murders, season 18

Thursdays at 8 p.m.

From vicious rivalries within the competitive cycling world to unexpected flying objects, the otherwise peaceful paradise of Midsomer can prove a surprisingly lethal place to call home.

DCI John Barnaby (Neil Dudgeon) and DS Charlie Nelson (Gwilym Lee) investigate grizzly goings-on in all-new episodes of “Midsomer Murders.” In six new cases, Barnaby and Nelson get involved with the deadly worlds of body-snatching, UFO spotting and international cycling, aided by a new member on the team: forensic pathologist Dr. Kam Karimore (Manjinder Virk). Other investigations this season involve: unraveling a complex feud from the past, cracking a case where art imitates death and diving into a murder with secrets long buried in the hallowed ground.

This week, an international cycling competition comes to the Midsomer village of Burwood Mantle. When the race leader is murdered, DCI Barnaby and DS Nelson find themselves drawn into a ruthlessly competitive world of blackmail, bribery and bloodshed where winning comes at any cost.
