1 hour or 2
How does the Saturday Midsomer Murder on ITV3 7pm-9pm fit into 1 hour on ITV+1. I suppose it's the usual lack of consideration for the viewers.

I've said that from the start. Wooden and blank. Sykes has more personality!

Time to stop watching
Will someone tell Neil Dudgeon to try acting please? When faced with a problem he screws up his mouth and that’s it. You’d never be convinced by him that there had been a violent murder. I can’t bear to watch anymore.

Hopeful
Disappointed as thought give it another go. Nettles was the only Barnaby for me. His cousin lacks charisma and tbh rather wooden in his acting. Ever changing sidekicks with little rapport so unlike Troy, Scott and Jones with the boss. Guess this will be deleted but heh ho!

Sedate easy viewing
Didn't bother watching it for years, although Mum enjoyed it & I enjoyed Terry Wogan's jokes about it on R2. Finally starting watching it after they filmed where I worked. Yes, it's sedate, middle of the road drama, but it's decent enough. All the cast are pretty good, although I prefer Nettles & Jones/Troy.

The new Inspector Barnaby
Neil Dudgeon is so much better in the role than John Nettles was. Nettles was like a robot.

Plodding
Neil Dudgeon was a very poor choice to replace john nettles. He is simply not good enough, humourless, plodding, robotic, and that pause each time before he speaks....is he waiting for someone to whisper the limes I his ear?? Can he not be replaced in the near future by another Barnarby relative (please)

Dreadful prolongation of a formula that depended on brilliant acting and top scripts. Unwatchable.

What is the Point?
Of Cully Barnaby and Sarah Barnaby appearing in these shows? In my view, no point at all.

We are the victims. Who is the culprit?
The Neil Dudgeon midsomers are terrible; all of the humor, warmth, camaraderie, smarts of the other series is gone. I've not gotten to where they have replaced Jones, but I hope the actor left the show by choice due to the horrible scripts he's been given. Suddenly he's a dunce and that dull dudgeon is so brilliant? Oh dear, the whole show is now as tasteless and unpalatable as the TV dinners the too young mrs Barnaby leaves in the oven!

Same old
Same old actors doing the rounds. Hamming it up beyond believe. Niamh Cusack and Harriet Walters trying to out ham one another! Neil Dudgeon is its saving grace

Too graphic
Some of the scenes are far too graphic before the watershed. Spoils a good programme. No need for it Very gratuitous

"A Hard Act To Follow"
It was always going to be incredibly hard to follow John Nettles, and Neil Dudgeon doesn't really pull it off, and his wife is FAR too young and pretty for him. Troy and Jones were really as irreplaceable as Nettles, though of course Jones did a good job of replacing the peerless Troy. RIP George, the pathologist - he brought a lot to the show, as did the people who wrote the music. Watch 10 minutes without the music and you realize how brilliant it is.

Disappointed
The new Barnaby lacks the personality and charisma of John Nettles. In fact I find him and his new partner wooden. Jones was the reason I was still watching!

Dull
The show has lost its sparkle. John Nettles Barnaby and now Jones has gone. Sykes is the only worth watching!

The show has lost it humor. The new guy does not fit the role. I think this is the last time I will watch, shame as it was always my favourite detective show.

Death of a Beloved Series
I have adored this show, and cannot believe what has hapenned to it since John Nettles and Brian True-May have left. All the inherent charm and humor are gone, replaced by mediocre plots and distasteful characters.

Classic TV
So not everything scene and action is strictly correct - its fiction!! I for one have really enjoyed these latest two episodes just like the old ones. It is so quintessentially english.

Flawed.
Yet another ludicrous plot, but I like the actors, including Sykes. Badly lit, and far too much reflector use giving everyone flashing teeth. Why is it that even with a lethal injection they always expel the air from the syringe, maybe for the same reason that all divers are deemed to use oxygen. Ignorance.

Confusion!!
Why isn't there more information regarding old and new Barnaby's and consistency of days when the programme is shown. I'm confused and recording out of date programmes rather than the new and more interesting versions?

I have to disagree with that statment...I think Jones(Jason Hughes) is a great actor. I also, however think the dog is pretty funny! I LOVE midsomer murders, and i am devastated they have stoped filming-i hope they re-start, very SOON!

That dog looks fed up, his acting skills are wooden and at the end of this episode he was yanked twice on his lead by Barnaby. Not cricket!
