Britain's best-loved detective series enters a new era as DCI John Barnaby, a cousin of the original detective, moves in to fight crime in the beautiful but deadly villages of Midsomer. New DCI John Barnaby arrives in Midsomer and is bemused by the quaint villages and their quirky residents. But when a local DJ is crushed to death at a traditional girls' boarding school, he soon discovers that murder and deception are never far away. As the death toll rises, could Barnaby's first case also be his last? Neil Dudgeon makes his debut as John Barnaby, alongside established sidekick DI Ben Jones played by Jason Hughes.
