Why have there only been two episodes of Midsomer Murders on ITV this year?
The first four episodes of Midsomer Murders series 19 aired in December 2016 and January 2017, but while the final two episodes of the six-part series aired on TV elsewhere in the world, they took some time to arrive on ITV.
The show returned onSunday 13th May at 8pm on ITV, with the final episode in the series airing on Sunday 20th May at 8pm on ITV.
Episode five, titled Death by Persuasion, takes us back in time. After a young woman slips away from a camp site where a Jane Austen fan event is taking place (dressed in Georgian attire, of course), she is found stabbed in the woods. DCI Barnaby and DS Winter discover there is more to the story: the victim was a journalist, interested in the village’s healthcare drone delivery programme.
Episode six, titled The Curse of the Ninth, includes the final appearance of pathologist Dr Kam Karimore (Manjinder Virk), who is moving to Canada. When a prize-winning musician is strangled with a violin string, DCI Barnaby uncovers multiple motives and multiple suspects.
