Ai sai, auld fellew ...

We like quite a bit of BBC America programming. Periodically PBS runs a series of Agatha Christie or Arthur Conan Doyle, which makes us happy. But, for us, the quintessential modern Brit mystery appeared on the Biography Channel: Midsomer Murders.

Chief Inspector Barnaby,
Detective Sergeant Troy, and company pursued criminals regularly in Midsomer. We took it for granted, settled in, and suspended disbelief until Barnaby left, only to return the following week. Then (how dare they) the programming changed. We have been without a Midsomer fix for months, it seems.

Until in moderate desperation, I requested that the library purchase a Midsomer DVD, available from Acorn Media. I asked for just one DVD. The library purchased four. Three have arrived today. The campers don't care if they have seen them or not.

They're happy ...

It is a shame that Midsomer Murders is not being played anymore. We'll miss the new ones; hopefully we haven’t seen the three that came in.

Aw, I love this show. Luckily, they are still showining it here in Italy.
