Could a ballad made famous by late, lamented folk sing Johnny Carver be an inspiration for hug?
Did someone want to hug Toby Winning for threatening to take the Little Crosby Folk Festival away from Midsomer - Or is the true motive something hidden for 20 years?
Nothing is what it seems behind the well-trimmed hedges of the picturesque cottages in the idyllic English countryside of Midsomer. Beneath the tranquil surface of sleepy village life, there exist dark secrets, scandals and downright evil. Murder, kidnap and blackmail are commonplace among the eccentric inhabitants of Midsomer.
In each episode, the peacefulness of the Midsomer community is shattered by unhappy crimes, suspects are placed under suspicion, and it is up to Detective Chief Inspector Barnaby to calmly and diligently eliminate the innocent and ruthlessly pursue the guilty.
