This is the series of episodes where Tom Barnaby has retired and his cousin John takes over. This not news to those who have kept up but apparently I'm just now to the 2013 episodes :) I was prepared to quit watching given the change in lead character, but instead I'm intrigued and re-engaged. Enjoyable for its dark humor and quirky locals, and for the always inventive if not necessarily strictly believable plot situations.

Like all the rest in the series, dependably entertaining! And interestingly, this is when one of the original characters is replaced by his 'cousin'. Usually tv shows really suffer when main beloved characters leave, but the writers figured out ways to make this new main figure just as interesting, in different ways, and just as appealing as well.

Midsomer England must be one of the most dangerous places on the entire earth. There's a murderous villain around every corner it seems. That is, if the stories are to believed. And you must, if you want to enjoy this British series to the max. So prepare to suspend disbelief a bit. Long time Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby has retired, and his cousin John Barnaby has arrived from the big city to save the day. The new Chief Inspector has some rather unusual traits, like he talks to his dog about the cases. And he's obsessed with historical murder trivia. The opening story makes clear that if John Barnaby was single, he'd live out of cardboard boxes and eat nothing but microwaved frozen dinners, so to leave time and shelf space for his books and magazines about sensational crimes of yesteryear. This DVD set about the continued adventured of murderous Midsomer -- part police detective, part dark comedy -- with the new Inspector John Barnaby and his assistant Ben Jones is good. Very good. Recommended.
