Classy guest stars in this two-part 2003 story. Honor Blackman sets the tale in motion as Isobel Hewitt, a well-to-do former socialite who’s new in the area and accused by the Midsomer Fly Fisher Club of assault. Philip Franks plays Quentin Roka, the antiques dealer who’s a confidant of Isobel but still doesn’t know her secret.
Meanwhile, Leo Bantock (James Hazeldine), businessman and old flame of restaurateur’s wife Ruth Scholey (Amanda Root), returns and causes trouble by revealing her fling with randy doctor Duncan Goff (Richard Durden).
Two of the above people are bludgeoned to death with a fence post.
Part one of two. Troy and Barnaby investigate foul play in the village of Malham Bridge, where the bodies of two people bludgeoned to death with a fence post have been found near a river. Although suspicion for the murders initially falls on poachers, the detectives look into the possibility the killing was a crime of passion. Guest starring Honor Blackman. Concludes tomorrow.
