Summary

Johnny Vegas and Sian Gibson return to Gold's whodunit comedy caper with some big crimes, big laughs and a woefully inadequate investigative ability.

Review

Spoofing Midsomer Murders is a difficult task as, these days, it’s more than happy to take the mickey out of itself. Only the other week, we had Barnaby investigating a killer who wore a wolf costume, so the sight of Gemma (Sian Gibson) and Terry (Johnny Vegas) now tracking a murderer who’s donned an oversized rabbit’s head does kind of feel tame by comparison.

But this whodunnit caper still has its moments, the bulk of which feature Miranda’s Sarah Hadland, who’s been brought on board to play Gemma’s point-scoring sibling Monica. She doesn’t think her sis can make a success of being a full-time PI and, to be fair, Gemma is more a soft-centred than hard-boiled detective. Yet she and Terry do have a habit of stumbling onto the truth. Eventually. And only after most of their suspect list has ended up getting slaughtered.
