Strangler's Woods is the second episode of the second series of the popular British crime drama Midsomer Murders and was originally aired 3rd February 1999.

Synopsis

Carla Constanza, a very attractive Brazilian actress and model for the advertising face of Monarch Tobacco, is found strangled with a necktie in Ravens Wood. The case is reminiscent of three similar murders that occurred nine years before. A German backpacker, an au pair and a hotel maid were raped and strangled in the wood, which was subsequently referred to by the locals as Strangler's Wood. The only difference with this case is that Carla was not raped. The evidence points to John Merrill, the Marketing Director for Monarch Tobacco. His expensive watch is found at the scene and there is physical evidence his car was there as well. For Barnaby however, it all seems all too easy, particularly since the original murders were never solved and the now retired policeman in that case, George Meakham, still seems obsessed at finding a result, but does not encourage Tom. When a second person is murdered, Barnaby finally starts to make sense of it all.

In English: Your cigarettes are killing me. I have a disease. Moron. You will pay. (brakes the ashtray full of cigarette) Shit.
