When Gregory Chambers, the manager of the Easterly Grange Hotel, fails to turn up to the owner's funeral the local villagers are concerned. When Gregory fails to turn to to perform the rather unconventional Punch and Judy show, the villagers know that something is seriously wrong. A search of the local woods, where Gregory spent much of his time collecting mushrooms, finds a severad hand belonging to the missing man and it is not long before Barnaby and Troy are investigating a whole series of killings and attempted murders.
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 violent 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.
