When a man who's been missing for two weeks is found dead in the woods near Midsomer, Barnaby finds connections between him and a magazine editor known for his killing reviews of local hotels and restaurants.
Christina Finleyson's ex-husband, who left Midsomer for London years earlier, is found dead in his car in woods at the back of Christina's house. Enquiries lead to the hotel where Christina's brother Martin is head barman and where a mystery man booked in with an appointment to see Guy Sandys, editor of the glossy 'Midsomer Life' magazine. Sandys is found stabbed to death after expecting to receive an envelope and when alcoholic hotel housekeeper Eleanor Crouch voices her suspicions about the mystery guest she ends up dead in a tumble dryer. Barnaby discovers that years earlier a miscarriage of justice had been perpetrated which only now certain people are aiming to rectify and which the original criminal is anxious to keep secret, striking at the heart of Midsomer life.

Jones tells Barnaby that Tomlin's car is found at Waterloo Station & they think he's taken the Eurostar to Paris. This episode aired in May 2008 and at that time, the Eurostar was no longer leaving from Waterloo - it was leaving from St. Pancras. See more »

This episode begins with an elderly man seeing something through some binoculars and then running for his life. He is later found dead in his car by some young people who apparently do off-road racing in their town. Apparently, these guys bring lots of money to the economy, although I don't know how. The true turmoil, however, involves a critic and a run down hotel. The people present in this hotel are barely hanging on. As is usually the case, there is history here. People are not what they seem. An interesting character is a middle aged woman who spends more time drinking wine that doing anything to help around the inn. She sees things but has little credibility. Two men are killed and she is somehow privy to who did it, but no-one cares what she has to say. Anyway, the conclusion sees to fall from the sky, contrived and over the top.
