Sign up to track down the show's status and its release date. Abuse of power is rife amongst them. A fingerprint points to Henry Marsh. Back in Bleakridge, Azeem is working late in his hardware shop when someone enters and selects a hammer from the display…. Meanwhile, Lena heads off to yet another hairdressing appointment and Mitch is suspicious: what is she up to? A sleepy Mitch tries to stop them but is hit over the head as the intruder escapes into the night… Barnaby and Winter track down the culprit - disgruntled ex-employee Adrian Peck - but Ingrid gives him an alibi and the police leave frustrated.
Next day Barnaby and Winter find poor Azeem bludgeoned to death and are perplexed to spot similar restraining marks. Barnaby and Winter come on the scene when a butcher, Angus, is murdered while investigating some burglaries. Whatever the reason, there seems to be no end of cars parked incorrectly, generating a great deal of work handing out parking tickets for the Bleakridge Watch. Next port of call is Ingrid Lockston, the Watch leader. Dusk falls in Bleakridge, the most remote village in Midsomer, and a group of villagers walk the streets, reporting anyone who falls foul of the law. Uniform enter to find Lena dressed in full dominatrix gear with a blushing Duncan shackled to the bed.
Believing Lena is connected to the murders, Barnaby traces her to a hotel. I'm intrigued by a possible relationship between the new coroner Manjinder Virk and Winter Neil Hendrix.

Plot The Bleakridge village watch are a Draconian bunch, penalizing the pettiest of offences. Barnaby and Winter find out that Frank was abusive to Maxine and the final piece of the puzzle falls into place….
Not everybody supports the watch, notably landlord Mitch McAllister, who is attacked and his pub vandalized and who is prime suspect when another member of the group is killed. Depending on who you ask he was a saintly brother, a perfect father… or a bullying, abusive, drunk of a husband. Midsomer is the sort of county where a person can live in a castle without anybody batting an eyelid. Winter discovers a stash of stolen goods hidden in the shop: Azeem was the village burglar. When one of their members dies, and new partner uncover just how far some people will go for power. It turns out to be a complicated matter when an old, burnt car is found that has been missing for two years, there's another murder, and the burglar and his stash are discovered when someone sought to exact revenge.
They're a tough bunch and hold a hard line and a lot of people don't care for them. Amongst the debris, he spies a burnt-out car… but whose is it? I know someone said it was a recycled plot, but still, I enjoyed it. Like the shows with John Nettles, we're getting back to a nice blend of mystery and personal lives on the show. Barnaby and Winter investigate when one of their number, butcher Angus Colton, is murdered whilst looking into a spate of burglaries and his sister-in-law, the fearsome Ingrid Loxton explains that the group was established after her brother was killed in an unsolved hit and run. When Ingrid relents by asking Barnaby to help catch the murderer he discovers not only a burned out car stolen two years earlier from café owners and for the hit and run but the identities of the burglar, putting Ingrid in a bad light, and the driver - who has cause to silence those watch members likely to expose their own form of crime and punishment. Based originally on the books by Caroline Graham, each self-contained episode of two hours is a classic whodunit revolving around Detective Chief Inspector Barnaby and his partner, and their efforts to solve the numerous gruesome murders which take place in the picturesque countryside of Midsomer County.
Later that night, someone breaks into The Gallows and causes a flood. At The Gallows, Barnaby and Winter learn from a beleaguered Mitch and his partner Lena, a mobile hairdresser, that the Watch are a total nuisance. This is a more-regimented, apparently full-time version of the normal Neighbourhood Watch scheme, boasting among its numbers Richard from Keeping Up Appearances and Nigel from Broadchurch Clive Swift and Joe Sims and commanded by a tweed-wearing Frances Barber as martinet Ingrid who, for no particular reason, lives in a castle. His killer was never found. When Ingrid relents by asking Barnaby to help catch the murderer he discovers not only a burned out car stolen two years earlier from café owners Barbara and Duncan Walton for the hit and run but the identities of the burglar, putting Ingrid in a bad light, and the driver - who has cause to silence those watch members likely to expose their own form of crime and punishment. Barnaby and Winter arrive to find Maxine informing best friend Barbara that she plans to move to Wales with Henry.
Barnaby and Winter investigate when one of their number, butcher , is murdered whilst looking into a spate of burglaries and his sister-in-law, the fearsome explains that the group was established after her brother was killed in an unsolved hit and run. Welcome to Bleakridge Watch country. Both agree to be professional. The show is currently in its 20th season. Maxine is distracted as she is secretly seeing Henry Marsh, local builder and bad boy turned good. Winter asks an awkward Kam out for dinner to talk about their drunken night in Dorset.
