Episode 5: Till Death Do Us Part

Summary

When Barnaby is dragged along to the wedding of the son of Sarah's friend Hazel, the last thing he expects to find himself doing is investigating a murder. But when his wife discovers the body of the bride, Laurel, who has been squeezed to death by her own wedding dress corset, the detective must look more closely at his fellow guests. The victim's husband Gavin is convinced that his wife's death had everything to do with her outspoken nature on her radio show, so Winter's attention soon turns to her unique community of nocturnal listeners. Gavin's scorned ex-fiancee and local wedding dress designer Serena also comes under suspicion, and Barnaby and Winter's enquiries lead them to a local wedding fayre. Neil Dudgeon stars, with Kelly Brook, Nick Hancock and Liz Fraser.

Review

In an episode that’s been gathering dust on a shelf somewhere at ITV since 2017, Kelly Brook plays a new bride who’s found dead on her wedding day, squeezed to suffocation by
her bridal dress corset.

Of course, no one bats an eyelid any more at such outre methods of murder, but it’s a bit tame, even for Midsomer Murders. The killer has tied a ribbon round her tongue possibly as some kind of hint that he or she is displeased at the victim’s role as some kind of shock jock on a witless local radio station, Midsomer FM.

DCI Barnaby’s wife finds the body as she and her husband are wedding guests. Of course.
