Judgement Day is the third episode of the third series of the popular ITV crime drama Midsomer Murders and was originally aired on 29th January 2000.


Midsomer Mallow hopes to win the Perfect Village competition on what is ominously called Judgement Day, but the village representatives are worried about their chances when a local young burglar and gigolo is found stabbed to death with a pitchfork. DCI Barnaby and DS Troy are on the case. Meanwhile, Joyce ends up in Mallow, too, when she wins a contest to be one of the judges for the competition. Cully also has business there: interviewing a famous retired actor for her book about the theater.
