| An excellent mystery.
This is a very good episode of Midsomer, from one of the classic years.

Who on Earth would want to bump off a budding young actor?

The beginning is quite literally explosive, and probably one of the most memorable scenes from Midsomer. It's a battle of the classes, two villages set against each other, Upper and Lower Warden, each with a charismatic figurehead at the helm.

Great story, great characters, it moves along at a great pace, and ends very well.

Upper Warden is spectacular, lower is pretty grim, I am surprised that Anne Reid's character isn't living in a mud hut in and old crone's outfit, they perhaps make Lower Warden a little overly ... decayed.

The true crime is the interior of the Barnaby household here, the sofa, curtains and walls are pretty grotesque, it's amusing.

Barnaby and Troy, Reid and Pickup, never in any doubts, it's very good, 8/10.
