An otherwise ordinary day in the homicide capital of Europe is plunged into chaos when a meteorite kills a local astronomer during a total eclipse of the sun.
As Barnaby and Jones are called in to investigate, they uncover more than they bargained for among Midsomer Stanton's seemingly harmless stargazing community. It transpires that the dead man's mission to preserve a Bronze Age heritage site housing a 1930s observatory was surrounded by a seething hotbed of sexual intrigue and academic rivalry. Patrick Moore would be appalled.
As darkness covers Midsomer Stanton during a total eclipse of the sun, Jeremy Harper is killed by a blow to the head with a meteorite.
