Garden of Death is the first episode of the fourth series of the popular ITV crime drama Midsomer Murders and was first aired 10th September 2000.


Barnaby and Troy investigate the murder of Fliss Inkpen-Thomas in the village of Midsomer Deverell. Her mother Elspeth owns the local manor house and is very much disliked in the village for her plans to close a memorial garden on the Manor grounds and open a tea room. There is a neighbour who already dislikes the trouble tourists cause; the daughter of the architect who designed the garden some years previously; the manor's gardener with whom both mother and daughter had been having an affair; and a second daughter, Hilary, whom Fliss tormented at every opportunity. When a second member of the Inkpen family is murdered, Barnaby believes the murders have a far different motive.
