In the villages of Midsomer there are fresh murders to solve... new clues to examine... and scores of suspects to suspect as D.C.I. John Barnaby (Neil Dudgeon) and D.S. Ben Jones (Jason Hughes) investigate the first three cases from Season 15. Their deductive skills are put to the test when the appearance of a headless horseman foreshadows a number of gruesome deaths; suspicion falls on a convicted murderer when a barrister is killed; and the murder of a journalist has chilling echoes of a 1960s horror film when death imitates art. Murder and deception are never far away as mayhem shatters the peaceful and picturesque villages of Midsomer in this two disc set, also including a new Audio Commentary with series star Neil Dudgeon. Includes 3 cases from Series 15 1. THE DARK RIDER Bentham DeQuetteville falls to his death from the roof of Quitewell Hall after seeing a headless horseman, but his aristocratic family seem more concerned about their forthcoming Civil War reenactment than the tragedy. Upon investigating the fall, Barnaby finds a priest hole containing a 17th century portrait of headless Cavalier officer Geoffrey DeQuetteville on a grey horse and learns about a family legend GÇô if the ghost of Geoffrey points at you it means you will die. There may be several more apparitions before the case is solved. 2. MURDER OF INNOCENCE When a barrister is killed in Midsomer, suspicion falls on convicted murderer Grady Felton. Grady has just returned to the village where he committed the murder years ago amid much anger from locals. But Grady has a solid alibi. Barnaby suspects he is working with an accomplice - that is until Grady himself is targeted. 3. DEATH AND THE DIVAS The murder of a journalist has chilling echoes of a 1960s horror film starring MidsomerGÇÖs own Stella Harris. When StellaGÇÖs more famous sister returns after a 40-year family rift, the killings escalate, each of them reminiscent of a movie plot. Is life and death imitating art? This special homage to the legendary Hammer Films includes cameo appearances by former Hammer stars John Carson and Caroline Munro.
