MIDSOMER MURDERS: Season 24 premieres December 4

I love Midsomer Murders, and I confess that I've seen the entire series at least twice, and probably more. Midsomer Murders is a quirky series with  imaginative murder scenes and weapons. If that sounds dark, I will tell you it isn't. I think of this series as one of the best mystery series on TV..not gritty, not scary.. just great acting, lovely scenery, and plots. Of. course, I wouldn't want to live in the county of Midsomer. Way too many murders for my taste. It's  Cabot Cove on steroids. 

Midsomer Murders, Season 24, will premiere on AcornTV on December 4. No news on when it will air in the U.K. (All series are still available in the U.S. on AcornTV).  Update: Season 24 has only 4 episodes.

Midsomer Murders is one of the longest-running mysteries currently still airing. It first aired in 1997 (first with John Nettles as DCI Tom Barnaby, then with Neil Dudgeon as DCI John Barnaby). The series is based on Caroline Graham's Chief Inspector Barnaby novels. The series is set in the fictional Midsomer County, and follows two different DCI Barnabys as they solve quirky murders occurring in lovely small villages. It's mystery 'lite',  and the murders often require some suspension of disbelief. I'm o.k. with that. 

So be sure and tune in to AcornTV on December 4 for Midsomer Murders. I know I will!

Why are there fewer and fewer episodes filmed in this series?
