Full of the best elements of the classic British murder mystery, this series is full of fascinating, entertaining cases of intrigue and suspense.

The hit crime series Midsomer Murders has become an international phenomenon, airing in more than 200 countries. Now the series debuts in the U.S. on WXXI-TV on Saturday, July 26, 2014 at 10 p.m. Featuring a lush visual style, quirky and quintessentially English characters and ubiquitous red herrings, this series recalls the classic public television mystery shows from the past.

At the center of the Midsomer Murders is Detective Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby (John Nettles), who investigates the killings with a professional, no-nonsense style, ably assisted by his chief deputy, Detective Sergeant Gavin Troy (Daniel Casey). The cases include the inexplicable murder of an old lady in the acclaimed season premiere, the two-part “The Killings at Badger’s Drift,” the brutal bludgeoning of a best-selling novelist in “Written in Blood,” a drowning of an elderly resident in “Death of a Hollow Man” and the killing of a founder of a new-age commune in front of a roomful of people in “Death in Disguise.”
