Midsomer Murders

A Talent for Life

Series 6 - Episode 1 A Talent for Life



The bodies of a glamorous senior citizen and a distinguished doctor are found beside a river - and although suspicion for their murders initially falls on poachers, Barnaby suspects a more monetary motive for the attack. However, the case becomes complicated with the discovery that a local restaurateur, who had recently learnt his wife had been having an affair with the male victim, has also met an untimely end. With Honor Blackman, Philip Franks, James Hazeldine and Jeff Rawle.
