Inspector Barnaby and the Midsomer Murders

Currently I am enjoying the Midsomer Murders.

Do you know them?


Zitat:
Midsomer Murders is a British television detective drama[1] that has aired on ITV since 1997. The show is based on the books by Caroline Graham, as originally adapted by Anthony Horowitz. The current lead character is DCI John Barnaby (Neil Dudgeon), who works for Causton CID. Dudgeon's character is the younger cousin of former lead character DCI Tom Barnaby (John Nettles). Dudgeon first appeared as randy gardener Daniel Bolt in the Series 4 Episode "Garden of Death". Dudgeon permanently joined the show in 2011 following Nettles' departure.

The stories revolve around the Barnabys' efforts to solve numerous murders that take place in the idyllic picturesque but deadly villages of the fictional county of Midsomer. The Barnabys have worked with several different sergeants throughout the run of the show: Sgt Gavin Troy (Daniel Casey), Sgt Dan Scott (John Hopkins), Sgt Ben Jones (Jason Hughes), and currently Sgt Charlie Nelson (Gwilym Lee).

Btw: Inspector Tom Barnaby is not in any way related with Barnaby Thomas Gerard Joyce in Australia. :)

Awful!
9 July 2013 | by celr – See all my reviews

As longtime fans of "Midsomer Murders" my wife and I were horrified by what has been done to this wonderful series. First off, Neil Dudgeon is a wooden actor: he plays John Barnaby with grim determination. He seems angry, angry at the killer (whoever he is), angry at Jones and angry at his wife, who by the way is some sort of career woman with whom John has little chemistry. A cute dog enters the picture, a cheap and obvious trick to lighten the mood at the Barnaby house. John Nettles played Barnaby with irony and humor, there's none of that with Dudgeon. "Midsomer Murders" is supposed to be a send-up of the English mystery, but that atmosphere of dark humor is missing in this episode, not only as the result of the acting but the writing too. John Barnaby delights in insulting Jones gratuitously, for no good reason. This is really ugly.

The writing is thin and the plot unconvincing. The killer's motive is contrived and preposterous, and by the way, insulting to people of faith. The murders are elaborately staged for no other reason to fill in for what is missing in plot and character development. John Barnaby sort of happens on the solution rather than solving it with his supposed detective skills.

There is no excuse for ruining a good detective series. The resources are there and surely a better actor could have been found to play the lead role. Of course with the retirement of Nettles you would suppose that the next 'Barnaby' would be a different sort of character, but why make him so unlikable? Our only consolation is that we have have about a decade's worth of really good "Midsomers" to go back over. No TV series can last forever.

And another review:

Zitat:
Desecration of a wonderful series

21 August 2014
This episode is not only bad in itself but it's worse because it's a part of what was once a wonderful mystery series. It is, in fact, a desecration. I never liked Dudgeon as a replacement for John Nettles. Dudgeon is wooden and humorless. In an older Midsomer he played a surly, shifty gardener. He was perfect for that role. But even he could have made a believable detective if the writing was up to par. Unfortunately it's not, it's banal. The dialog is bland, the motives of the characters are bizarre and unbelievable and the plot is predictable and melodramatic. Midsomer is a darker, more depressing place now.

'Midsomer Murders' worked because of its subtle humor. Odd motives, strange methods of homicide and barely hidden passions among respectable, self-absorbed villagers were just part of the fun because the entire series was based on its dark humor, a beautifully crafted send-up. Without the humor the motives of the killer and other characters seem just convoluted and creepy. The solution looks to be pulled out of a hat since there's insufficient preparation for it in preceding scenes. The final rescue is prolongued, preposterous, and overwrought. And there's a sappy love story tacked on which is too contrived to be heart warming.

Brian True-May is gone, taken down by nasty elements of the PC thought police. His absence is sincerely felt. How much that effects the quality of recent episodes I don't know, but it can't help. This episode is practically unwatchable. Don't bother.
