This is a note for the Midsomer fans who already own Midsomer Murders Collection The First -Sixth Collection.

This is not the next part of that series, you already have these episodes.

As a long time Midsomer Murders fan, I had been looking for a good British series. The entireity of the series is exceptionally good and entertaining. New characters are introduced, and it did not take long to welcome them. In fact, Every well known English actor has appeared at least once in this series. It made the last of the series a little more exciting. I was given this series from a pal in the UK

John Nettles is Barnaby and Daniel Casey is his DS. Barnaby is thinking of retiring. He is young with city experience and wonders if country life will suit him. However, he is more than willing to give it a try. Badgers Drift is the scene, and there seem to be more murders than necessary. The mysteries and murders continue. We meet some of the families of all involved. All of the episodes are well done and entertaining. And the last episode, well..wait and see.

Midsomer Murders are really good movies. Pure cosy pleasure, with a touch a violence, and a good dose of humor. Just pour yourself a cup of tea, and... enjoy! Wonderful actors BTW.

Why people are giving this seies low scoring is beyond me. It is their fault they can't read properly and don't research what is on the set before buying!!!. Anyway if you are buying the series of series :) ten go ahead and buy it. ciao.

Also not sure why some people score this low, nor why they found it hard to work out which episodes would be on this DVD. If you've bought Troy's casebook which is GREAT value then want the next lot, the first one on here (The Green Man) will be duplicated, but the other six will be new. I think that's decent value for this price given the length of each episode and the quality of the guest actors (Haydn Gwynne, John Standing, Linda Bellingham, Malcom Tierney, Donald Sumpter, Keith Barron to name but a few).

John Nettles was the best Barnaby and these box sets are reasonably-priced. Later dvds went to single episodes (a rip-off) and grossly overpriced box sets. The later Barnaby is dreadfully miscast for the role, in my view. It would have been far better to promote the sargeant to Inspector and bring in a new (funny?) character as his subordinate. A great opportunity missed.

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!

It seems a shame that people might be put off buying this set by a number of negative reviews from people who made a mistake about what they were ordering. This box-set is correctly described as 'Series 7' of Midsomer Murders and that's exactly what it is - perhaps it's helpful to list the episodes - The Green Man, Bad Tidings, The Fisher King, Sins of Commission, The Maid in Splendour, The Straw Woman and Ghosts of Christmas Past. Very enjoyable series, particularly 'Bad Tidings', 'The Straw Woman' and 'Ghosts of Christmas Past', but all the storylines are of a high standard. 'The Fisher King' contains a particularly classic exchange between Barnaby and his Sergeant which nicely sums up the gently self-aware humour of Midsomer:

Sergeant Scott: Is the murder rate always this high around here, Sir?
Barnaby: It has been remarked upon.

What this *isn't* is 'Midsomer Murders: A Seventh Collection' (that is a different set containing episodes from series 11 and 12; personally, I think 'Midsomer Murders' had gone very much downhill by the time you reach series 11 and 12 but if you want episodes from those series you need to look elsewhere).

I didn't like Sgt Scott at first due to being a big fan of Troy but as this 7th series goes on he does begin to grow on you and becomes a fully rounded character not just a lecherous pervert from the big city who thinks he's to good for the job. As usual John Nettles and his supporting cast are fantastic and the writing is on top form.

Midsomer Murders just gets better and better

More of the same well written recipe of stories from this well loved series. A good stock item to have in your DVD library to watch on a day when the telly does not live up to expectations. I just love this programme.
