More murder in the sticks

Midsomer Murders

UTV, 8pm

A missing tax inspector is found dead in a vat of cider and suddenly, Barnaby and Jones (Neil Dudgeon, left and Jason Hughes) find themselves entwined in a bizarre murder hunt.

However, residents in a local village, for all sorts of strange reasons, are determined to frustrate their investigation.

There's a whiff of black magic and the occult in the air and the opening scene, complete with howling ghoulish dogs, really sets the tone.
