excellent episode
7 September 2016 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

I found this a particularly good episode, with lots of surprises along the way.

A teen named Grady Felton went to prison for killing Daniel Denning in 1994. Felton was from the wrong side of the tracks; the Dennings were landowners. Daniel apparently caught Grady poaching and Grady killed him.

Well, Grady is out of prison now and back in Binwell -- with a hit list, which includes Jones as well as the barristers who prosecuted him. And the people on the list start dying.

Then the pathologist discovers something interesting, and finally, Barnaby is able to solve the murders.

The script attempted, I think successfully, to humanize the new Barnaby more, as he prepares for a fitness test. Jones has a girlfriend who's a fireperson.

A lot was packed into this episode but it was a good story. I haven't watched Midsomer Murders in a while, but I'm back to it now. I'm looking forward to more like this.
