The English village mystery gets a contemporary spin in this hit British television series. Bucolic settings harbor macabre crimes and eccentric characters that are no match for nice-guy detective Tom Barnaby (John Nettles, Bergerac) and his eager assistant, Sergeant Troy (Daniel Casey, The Wingless Bird). Charming locations, dry humor, and an outstanding ensemble cast have earned the series a worldwide following. Guest stars include Samantha Bond, Anthony Bate, Sarah Alexander, Victoria Hamilton, Kenneth Colley, Gillian Kearney, and Celia Imrie. 5 cases, 8 1/2 hrs, 3 DVDs, SDH.
