I started collecting the individual tapes beginning with The Killings at Badger's Drift in Series 1 to Birds of Prey which is the end of series 6 (and each episode cost me a veritable fortune, so I now buy the box sets). Anybody who has bought the series (plural) will be happy to get the next 7 episodes, anyone who has bought 10 episode collection sets will be confused or angry, because, as it has been said repeatedly, the collection box sets DO NOT contain the series in order of shooting and airing on TV and never will. If you want Midsomer Murders from A to Z (so-to-speak), invest in the Box sets 1-2, 3-4, 5-6,and then individual series box sets 7, 8, 9 to currently 13. And read the comments BEFORE you start buying. As to this series - it's as good as it gets!
