I always enjoy a good murder mystery and one of my favourite shows is Midsomer Murders”. One of my work colleagues jokes that there must be hardly anybody left in that village, so many people have come to a grisley end since the series started! The fictional village of Midsomer must be one of the most dangerous counties in the land! Don’t think I’d like to live there! However now Midsomer (or rather one of the real life villages in Buckinghamshire used to film several episodes of the show) has become the scene of a real life murder investigation after a pensioner’s body was found in a field. Police are now conducting a murder investigation and have stepped up patrols in the area, after reassuring locals that (unlike fictional Midsomer!) incidents of this kind are very rare in the village. Anybody who saw anything suspicious in connection with the death is urged to get in touch with Det Chief Insp Pete Vigurs at Aylesbury police station on 0845 8 505505. Sounds like they need to get Inspector Barnaby on the job!

Sounds like a good one. I would love to be able to watch.

There was a popular show in America a few years back, "Murder, She Wrote." The main character, a mystery writer, would invariably wind up in the middle of a murder every week and have to solve it for the police. I joked with my wife that if that author ever showed up in my circle of friends, I was leaving town, because somebody was about to die.

It's a great show Sandy. I'm sure you would enjoy it.

We used to get "Murder She Wrote" over here Granimore. I think everybody Jessica knew ended up as either a suspect or murder victim!
