Nothing is as it seems behind the well-trimmed hedges of the picturesque cottages in the idyllic English county of Midsomer. Beneath the tranquil surface of sleepy village life exist dark secrets, scandals and downright evil. John Nettles stars as the humorous, thoughtful and methodical Detective Chief Inspector Barnaby. This Christmas Collection includes four fantastic episodes!

Ghosts Of Christmas Past: It is Christmas in Midsomer. A shot rings out from Draycott House. Nine years later the whole Villiers family come together again. At the police station DCI Barnaby heads home and asks Sgt Scott to contact him if anything happens, warning him that: 'Things have a habit of happening around Christmas time.'

Death Of A Stranger: Detective Chief Inspector Barnaby and Sergeant Troy investigate a murder. DCI Barnaby returns from a winter holiday to discover an unidentified tramp has been beaten to death in the woods near the village of Marshwood. While he was away, Supt Ronald Pringle, just before his retirement, quickly arrested a local young man. But Barnaby suspects that he is innocent, which is only reinforced when there is an apparent suicide at the same spot.

A Talent For Life: In Malham Bridge, former socialite and feisty pensioner Isobel Hewitt is accused of assault by fellow fly fisher Margaret Seagrove. When Barnaby and Troy investigate the allegations they discover that all is not well on the Midsomer riverbanks. The investigation takes a more serious turn when two bodies are discovered in the river. Are they the victims of an uncalculated attack by poachers or was there a more sinister motive?

Shot At Dawn: The Court Marshall and execution of Tommy Hicks for desertion during World War I, ignites a feud between the Hammonds and the Hicks, which lasts for 90 years. Duggie Hammond always felt guilty about his forced involvement in Tommy's unjust death. During a ceremony at the village war memorial Tommy's son, Lionel, unveils a plaque for his father. Colonel Henry Hammond, who supported the execution, finds the ceremony farcical and lets his feelings be known. When Henry is later executed Barnaby and Jones investigate.

In spite of the title and the snowy covershot of John Nettles, only one of the Midsomer episodes included on this disc has any connection with Christmas; 'Ghosts of Christmas Past' is not only a true Christmas story, but also one of the best-ever episodes in this long-running series. However, it and the other episodes on this disc are available elsewhere and those other three episodes are far more summery than wintery. Of those other three, 'Death of a Stranger' and 'A Talent for Life' are at least both good episodes (the latter featuring a perfectly-cast Honor Blackman) but 'Shot at Dawn', in spite of entertaining performances from Donald Sinden and George Cole, is, like many of the episodes first shown over the last couple of years, a very 'ho hum' affair. The 'extras' are, as with most other Midsomer DVDs, negligible.
