Midsomer Murders: The Complete Series Eight [6 Discs] [DVD]

Cardmember Offers



Provincial police inspector Tom Barnaby (John Nettles) is busier than ever in Series Eight of the popular British mystery program Midsomer Murders. Instead of the usual four feature-length episodes, this year's schedule yields no fewer than eight challenge mysteries for Barnaby and his new assistant, Sgt. Dan Scott (John Hopkins). In the opener "Things that Go Bump in the Night", Barnaby tries to determine if a killer is lurking amidst a spiritualist group. In "Dead in the Water", a corpse puts a crimp in the annual Midsomer rowing regatta. "Ghosts of Christmas Past" proves to be something of a relief for Barnaby, inasmuch as his investigation of strange events at an ancient historical landmark enables him to escape his irksome Christmas house guests. In "Orchis Fatalis", the murder of a supposedly respectable schoolteacher is at the center of a mystery involving an unusually valuable orchid. "Bantling Boy" is the story of a race horse, a groom with an unsavory past, and sudden death. In "Second Sight", Barnaby comes upon a village populated by psychics--at least one of whom is a murderer. In "Hidden Depths", a brace of suspicious deaths is somehow linked with a cache of counterfeit wine labels. Finally, "Sauce for the Goose" serves up the unappetizing spectacle of man crushed to death in a vat of relish! ~ Hal Erickson
