Storyline

DCI Barnaby and Sgt. Troy investigate the murder of Gregory Chambers who was killed when out in the woods mushrooming. He was one of four people who had recently inherited a portion of his employer's estate, principally a local hotel. With his death, his one-quarter share now passes to his wife, Suzanna, who has been having an affair with Tristan Goodfellow. It would also appear that Gregory was having an affair with Annie Salter, who is four months pregnant. When Tristan is poisoned with a type of mushroom known as Destroying Angel and the other inheritors of the estate are put at risk, Barnaby looks to find a common connection. Written by garykmcd

Too keen on pleasing and titillating
13 April 2019 | by martin-interculturalSee all my reviews

This could have been a defining Midsomer episode. But the "giving the people what they want" gets so thick, it drags pieces of the story down to a daytime soap opera aesthetic. In general, the country set's illicit rumpy-pumpy which peppers the Midsomer franchise can be highly entertaining. In this particular case, though, it is served up with all the "innuendo" of a punch in the face. Coupled with copious melodrama surrounding a local Punch a Judy puppet show (sorry, I'm not four years old), I found myself annoyed and fast-forwarding through many scenes.
