Midsomer Murders season 1 episodes list:
The secretary of the Midsomer Worthy's writers' circle is found brutally murdered after objecting to a visit from a best-selling novelist.
In the quiet rural village of Ferne Basset, an elderly resident is inexplicably found drowned after a violet attack and Barnaby and Troy are sent to investigate. Meanwhile, a local amateur dramatic production of Amadeus reveals a hitherto hidden backstage world of intrigue, passion and gossip, and a whole new meaning to corpsing.
Community spirit is running high in the village of Morton Fendle as many villagers have invested in the local craft centre, Morton Mill, owned by Alan Hollingsworth. However, the project is in financial ruin and DCI Barnaby is brought in to investigate, in what turns out to be a much more sinister case; Hollingsworth's wife has disappeared, a neighbour is murdered, and the vigilantes in the village want their money back.
When May Cuttle, from the Lodge of the Golden Windhorse interrupts DCI Barnaby during preparations for Sunday lunch, little does he realise the intrigue that is to follow. The home for 'travellers' at the Lodge becomes the scene of Barney and Troy's investigations when the founder of the new-age commune, accidentally falls down the stairs to his death. But when the other founder is murdered in front of a roomful of people, the first death starts to look as if it may have not been an accident at all.
At a local New Age commune (fancifully called the Lodge of the Golden Windhorse) William Carter is found dead with a broken neck, lying at the bottom of a staircase. Barnaby and Troy have to decide whether the death was an accident or murder.
