Neil Dudgeon as Chief Inspector John Barnaby rankles somehow. Bringing in a new, unknown DCI would have been much better than a relative. I like the guy, he has an irony and sense of humor that make me smile. But, he is not the old Barnaby, not quite. Jason Hughes as Detective Ben Jones seems much too old to be playing the bumbling young Detective. Too quick in his assessments and too quick with a wise crack. Someone younger would be more believable. In one case Barnaby calls Jones, who says he is in bed and not alone. Nothing was ever said again about that instance, and I thought how odd. This is a team who by the fourth episode seemed to hit some sort of stride, but I don't know that I will continue with this series.
The series has taken a 90 degree turn. The mysteries seem darker, the killings more violent, I gather that is our wont now, but not in Midsomer, please! There are also seems to be an increase in supercilious characters in these
episodes, some very unlikable people. Reading this over, I see I have been quick in my assessments. When the next series of episodes arrive, I will view again, and see if time changes my attitude.
