Faithful unto Death is the third episode of the first series of the popular British crime drama Midsomer Murders and first aired on 22nd April 1998.


Anger is mounting in Midsomer as villagers in Morton Fendle have invested money into the local craft centre which is in financial turmoil. The owner Alan Hollingsworth hasn't got the money to return to the investors but the villagers plan to get their money back, in any way possible. However, when DCI Barnaby arrives in the village he is not only investigating dodgy deals as Alan's wife Simone is missing and their neighbour is found murdered.
