Underated Murder Mysteries Come To DVD,
By A Customer
This review is from: Midsomer Murders - Death Of A Hollow Man  [DVD] (DVD)
It's good to see the adventures of John Nettles' Inspector Barnaby finally come to DVD. Taken from the first series 'Death of a hollow man' is one of the strongest episodes in the series history.
Full of memorable characters played by some of this countrys finest actors and with one memorable murder inflicted by the victim as he performs on stage.
The story is set around a amateur production of 'Amadeus' at the Causton Playhouse. But the cast, who includes the Inspector's wife Joyce, soon discover that someone is more interested in murder than showbusiness.
John Nettles returned to television after concentrating on his stage career and fits the part of Barnaby perfectly. He is paired with the accomplished young actor Daniel Casey who makes an admirable foil to his bosses ideas.
Well worth buying if you're a fan of the classic English murder mystery.
