Picture of Innocence is the sixth episode of the tenth series of the popular ITV crime drama Midsomer Murders and first aired 3rd June 2007.


The battle between traditional film and modern digital photographers becomes far too personal for Tom Barnaby when he becomes the prime suspect in a murder. Lionel Bell is a member of the former group that has recently banned digital photographs from the local photography competition. He's had recent run-ins with Steve Bright, a digital photographer who seems to go out of his way to make the traditionalists miserable. When Bell is found strangled however - with a digital memory card in his mouth - Barnaby becomes a suspect when it is revealed that he and Bell's estranged wife once dated. Barnaby's name is also found in the dead man's diary as someone who was to visit him the previous evening. With the case now assigned to DI Martin Spellman, whom Barnaby dislikes, Tom finds himself on the sidelines but not without an interest in clearing his own name. A second murder once again points to Barnaby and it's clear that someone is going to extraordinary steps to frame him. An infatuation is at the root of it all.
