Blood Will Out is the fourth episode of the second series of the popular ITV crime drama Midsomer Murders and originally aired 19th September 1999.


DCI Barnaby and DS Troy are initially called to the village of Martyr Warren to investigate the theft of a goose, but the situation becomes more serious when its unpopular owner Hector Bridges (Paul Jesson), "the most hated man in the village", is found shot in his home. Suspicion falls on the members of two bands of Travelers whose recent arrival in the village infuriated the dead man. One of the travelers turns out to have served with Bridges in the army. A complicated set of relationships by marriage (where each of a pair of married couples was previously married to their current spouse's ex) makes it more difficult for Barnaby and Troy to unravel the motive behind the killing of an ex-Army man who still thought he was commanding a squadron of fellow villagers. The appearance of a traveling band of nomads for a festival adds to the list of suspects, as well as a possible second victim.
