So it’s likely that everyone else already knows about Midsomer Murders. Having no tv, and depending upon Netflix and Amazon Prime, I’m often behind the curve on tv shows. But now that it’s cold outside and dark early, I’ve moved inside and have been looking for something to watch while I knit. And I’ve discovered Midsomer Murders — an intelligently plotted and well acted British mystery series set in a group of fictional British villages, all with lovely gardens and cottages. I especially like that the head detective is so compassionate; often, even while he’s charging someone with a crime, he’s trying to help them. There are quite a few episodes with Pagan themes, Greenman and Straw Woman (with one of the best closing lines in all of tv), among them.
Let me know what you think.
