5.0 out of 5 stars Here comes the bride... 9 Jun 2011
Format:DVD
A young woman is strangled, made to look like a bride and laid in a bath; a chilling message written in lipstick on the bathroom mirror. As more grisly deaths follow, all wedding themed, it becomes clear a serial killer is at large in Great Worthy...

This was Midsomer back on form. I thought the first two episodes with Neil Dudgeon were a bit tame and forgettable, but this one really packs a punch. A brilliant script, fine acting and amazing direction from Nick Laughland. Although the identity of the maniac, who is truly repulsive, wont come as a surprise, I guarantee the climax will linger in your mind for a long time after the end credits.

Watch out for a particularly eerie rendition of "Here comes the bride"...

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 4 July 2011
Format:DVD
You'd think after the amount of episodes I've seen, I would have worked out the format of the episode and more clued up earlier on in the episode as to who the murderer is...but no! This episode has some great casting with Pam Ferris getting involved plus little Mo from Eastenders. Everybody seems to be in Midsomer recently!

All I'd like now if for the dog to be on one of the DVD covers and that would be marvellous!

I like Neil Dudgeon, I think he's a fine actor and enjoyed him in his earlier portrayal as "DCI John Barnably of Brighton" co-starring with John Nettles. I've watched several of the newer Midsomer series with Neil Dudgeon and I've tried to identify why I'm not as "satisfied" with the more recent releases featuring him in his new role.

I've come to the conclusion that Nettles played the DCI with a certain amount of pent up energy, a bit of a "wound spring" in his character....I perceived him as "impatient" with just about everything in any given case. I found this character trait appealing.

Dudgeon seems to be the opposite...he seems to play the "all things come to those who wait" character. Patient, cerebral but without a sense of urgency. I think this affects the almost imperceptible but necessary "chemistry" that takes place between the actors (as previously, their characters seemed to "play off" the Tom Barnaby urgency) and provide a "believable ensemble" in telling the story.

A "let's wait and see what develops" character portrayed by Dudgeon is not, to me, as appealing as the "let's get on with it" character portrayed by Nettles.

We can regard any given episode a "well written" or not, but the essential "traits" depicted by the actors help to determine whether you'll feel a "connection" to the characters and a believability in who they portray. I believe my 'less satisfied" feeling comes from this lack of "connection" and believability.

This has been such an enjoyable program in the past that I find myself genuinely sorry to feel the way I do about the new episodes.

Had to purchase this after reading the book Pollyann, about the donkey's who feature in this episode. It was nice to see the donkey's after having read about them.

5.0 out of 5 stars history repeating 25 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
The tension is certainly tangible in this episode with some of the most unpleasant murders to come the way of Midsomer. Thank goodness for the light relief of Barnaby's little dog. We have the lovely Pam Ferris doing her bit for donkeys and a very strange couple running the local pub who enjoy getting up to all sorts in the boudoir. Plus a rather oddball character running the petrol station with his parents who sit watching the telly with the volume turned up to the max all the day long. Throw in some magnificent steam trains and really very good photography and you have one of the most scary stories in this series for a long time.
