Trivia

The actors' and actresses' credits at the beginning of each show are rigorously egalitarian. After John Nettles or Neil Dudgeon and the actor playing the current Detective Sergeant, the actors and actresses playing the major supporting roles are listed alphabetically, no exceptions. As a result, well-known guest stars like Edward Fox, Honor Blackman, Hayley Mills, Claire Bloom, Peter Capaldi, Henry Cavill, Jenny Agutter, Orlando Bloom, Mark Gatiss, and Sir John Standing, amongst others, get no special billing. They're simply mixed in with the regular supporting cast and others. See more »

Midsomer Murders - An Interesting one to Watch !!
17 April 2006 | by shadhana_manoSee all my reviews

Hi Everyone,

I have watched some four to five episodes of Midsomer Murders recently and I am looking forward to watch more of those.I really enjoyed the way the story was moving.The Characters of Tom Barnaby and Seargent Troy were amazing.Midsomer takes the viewers to the old England.Those village sceneries were really splendid.I really wonder whether those villages still exist in England as most parts of England had been urbanized.John Nettles has done his part well according to the character.And so is Daniel Casey.I am very much eager to watch the other stories of Midsomer Murders as well.One Important thing which i really liked the most and because of which i was able to sit and watch the whole movie without changing the movie channel is that there were only few scenes that depicts vulgarity in the movie.I really Appreciate the person who has taken it in this manner and has given life to the Midsomer series. And last but not the least One cannot forget the tile Music.It is an everlasting one.

Finally My Heartiest Compliments for all those actors who have made this really an interesting one to watch.

Regards M.Sadana
