Midsomer Murders: A Worm in the Bud

During his investigations into the apparent suicide of a childless farmer's wife, Barnaby uncovers an ancient land feud over the nearby Setwale Wood. When his inquiries expose the possibility of witchcraft, some marital infidelity and a determined campaign to save the wood, it convinces him that there is more going on than a simple suicide.
