I can hear it now. “Series 8? Midsomer Murders is well past that now.” Well, yes, but only online in the US. So, for those who have been waiting for new episodes of the hit Brit mystery to arrive on local public television stations, your wait is nearly over.
Beautiful gardens and verdant fields make the (fictional) county of Midsomer quite picturesque and quaint, but the murder rate also makes it the “deadliest county” in England. What’s a local copper to do?
For Causton CID’s DCI Tom Barnaby (John Nettles) and his sidekick DS Daniel Scott (John Hopkins), it means digging for clues to catch the culprits. And there are plenty of do-no-gooders when the eighth series of Midsomer Murders comes to public television.
There are victims aplenty, too, with Midsomer residents ranging from an undertaker and a scholar, to a horse trainer and a music teacher, being killed over the course of the series’ eight two-part stories, including “Things That Go Bump in the Night,” “Dead in the Water,” “Orchis Fatalis” “Bantling Boy,” “Second Sight,” “Hidden Depths,” “Sauce For The Goose,” and Midsomer Rhapsody.”
Series 8 of Midsomer Murders begins screening on local public television stations starting the 1st of April (no fooling). Check your local listings or contact the station serving your area for air dates.
UPDATE: Stations in Florida (Miami), Minnesota, Oregon, and Vermont have picked up the program.
