Midsomer Murders is a long running TV series of contemporary murder mysteries, based on the award winning Inspector Barnaby novels by mystery writer Caroline Graham, who the Sunday Times describes as "the best detective writer since Agatha Christie".
In each episode, the peacefulness of the Midsomer community is shattered by violent crimes, suspects are placed under suspicion, and it is up to DCI Tom Barnaby, (replaced in series 14 by his cousin DCI John Barnaby), to calmly and diligently eliminate the innocent and ruthlessly pursue the guilty.
A Saint’s bones are found at an archaeological dig and is causes a quite stir in the village of Midsomer Cicely. After the leader of the dig is found dead, DCI Barnaby and DS Nelson soon work out that it’s not only skeletons that have been long buried in the hallowed ground.
A new Sculpture Park opens in Angel’s Rise but its launch is marred by a murder. DCI Barnaby and DS Nelson attempt to get creative to crack a case as art imitates death, and everything has a deeper meaning.
