Season 19 Midsomer Murders on AcornTV

I've just watched Season 19 of Midsomer Murders, one of my favorite long-running series. Loved all four episodes. Only wish there were more.

Midsomer Murders returns to AcornTV on March 6 with four new feature-length episodes set in England’s most murderous county.  Let's face it, you don't want to live there! People are always dying, and in unique ways.

The capable Detective Chief Inspector John Barnaby (Neil Dudgeon) and new assistant DS Jamie Winter (Nick Hendrix) investigate the cozy villages of Midsomer’s most sinister secrets, including a murder in a ghost village and a body found covered in rabbits at a local pet show.

DS Ben Jones (Jason Hughes) returns in a guest appearance in Episode 3 as Barnaby and Winter investigate the death of a star cricketer. Also guest starring Neil Morrissey (Men Behaving Badly), Susan Hampshire (The First Churchills, Monarch of the Glen), Natasha Little (The Night Manager), and more.

Series 1-18 of Midsomer Murders now streaming on Acorn TV. Catch up before Series 19, Part 1 premieres.
