  • I have been trying to find the last episode of Tom Barnaby for months, and it just is NOT in the US or at least not on the Amazon Prime, Brit box of US episodes. They are 90 min. long, just like the others and ends BEFORE the birthday party, so we don't know what is happening and all of a sudden, there is his cousin taking over his job.  I saw this show years ago with all episodes and it was on there and also quite a few of the first shows with Neil Dudgeon are missing as well.  What is going on with this show? I would like to see the beginning at least of the new shows, as it is it opens with no explanation or beginning, you open the first episode and he is there and working - ridiculous!!!!

    • There is an explanation...  The producer Brian True-May, has said that two different endings for Fit for Murder were filmed.  One showed the ending as Tom's birthday party and the other had a retirement party.  The retirement party version was to be shown when the episode first aired, and all subseqent airings would be with the birthday party.  We look back on that decision now and think that was crazy.  Here is an article with excerpts of an interview that True-May gave in March of 2011.

      Both the PBS version I have and the Britbox version show the birthday party ending.  Someone posted the retirement party version on Youtube a while back but I can't find it now.  I suppose I should get the DVD or Blu-ray and see what's on there.

  • I have a question. I'm not so sure which murders should be considered to have been comitted prior to the episode. Because of this I don't know exactly which murders should be added to the Murdered Prior to the Episode category in Midsomer Body Count page. What is your opinion? I consider that it should be those murders that Barnaby doesn't know about them until later in the episode or aren't the first murder that Barnaby investigates. I could be wrong though.

    • I think they should be listed, I don't see a problem in that because they were mentioned. And Gaius Quintus was even shown in that video that I posted in the Body Count. What we could do is finish with adding the other deaths that are not in the Body Count yet. And when we calculate the totals at the top of the page, we can say near them how many deaths were shown on-screen or something like that.

    • I think you have some good ideas.  I'm not so heavily invested in the actual murder/death totals as they are really just fun trivia, but as with any trivia, there's lots of minutia that will pile on to the task of presenting the information.  Don't get me wrong - I love the minutia and do think that everything should be presented.  

      I had originally thought that the facts regarding the murders could be placed on the episode page in order to give more space for the narrative.  This would give the opportunity to explain everything we have been discussing.  We can still do that for the episodes that have these prior murders or deaths that are mentioned.

      And also, give some thought to what the "Body Count" should be with the understanding that the Series is really about Murders that take place in Midsomer County.

      Either way you go, I won't get in your way.

  • Stephen, why do you delete my minor character pages Freddie Raitt?

      Loading editor
    • You created a page for a character named "Freddy Raitt" played by Josephine Butler.  The actress Josephine Butler appeared as Freddie Raft in the episode The Oblong Murders.  If there really is a minor character named Freddie Raitt, I apologize and will restore the page, however, I believe that you simply had the character's name wrong and created a page for a character that already existed.

  • To  Dr._Dementor and IonutC

    Series 21 is going to be released on Britbox and Acorn TV to the U.S. on 1 Dec 2019. It may be a good idea to give the Main Page a fresh look.

    Wondering if you have any suggestions for an updated page.

    I can have screenshots of the new Episodes pretty quickly and then I'll change the Carousel Gallery to include them, but there are other things that you may want to see.

    Let me know your thoughts. And thanks for everything!

    • And what should a caracter do to be considered a Suspect?

        Loading editor
    • Suspect is a little bit loosely defined.  I would consider it to be anyone that had been considered a suspect for the murder (or murders) that are a part of the episode. Doesn't have to be an official suspect, but could be someone who Barnaby and/or his detectives are suspicious of.

  • I need help about the vidoe I linked on the page 'The Killings at Badger's Drift". Any suggestion, code lines, please.

  • Looks like I inadvertently began a dupe entry under 'Midsomer County' reiterating 'Midsomer' if you'd like to delete.

  • Midsomer Murders: Wikia Change. I was wondering if both of us could help add Writer and Director profiles to the WIKIA?

    • Hi TarrantMaster2,

      First, could you create your profile page as it makes it easier to communicate? - thanks.

      Thanks for your recent edits.  Please make sure when creating new pages that you add a category (i.e. "Towns and villages" or "Director") .  Also, it's easiest to structure your pages in the same manner as existing, similar pages.  For example, when creating pages for Writers or Directors, take a look at how existing pages look and structure the new pages the same way.

      Please take some time to go back and edit the pages you just created and change them so that they are similar in style and content to existing pages.

      In answer to your question, we would love to have good, high quality content for Writers, Directors and Villages (well, everything actually...), but it comes down to how much time I'm able to spend maintaining this Wikia.  Currently, my time is very limited, but that may not always be the case.  I may be able to jump in to help your efforts from time to time, but I can't promise.  

      One thing I am sure of is that neither myself nor Dr. Dementor want to spend any time fixing edits made by other users. Since you've just started editing here, we're hopeful that you'll catch on quickly.

      Thanks again for your contributions! if you need any assistance, feel free to ask.

  • Thanks, Steve.  That's smart - I didn't think to use Shazam (even though Jamie did), now I feel really old!
