UK: Inspector Barnarby to leave 'Midsomer Murders' on TV

Causton police HQ is to lose its most famous resident detective. Actor John Nettles, 65, has announced that he will be leaving Midsomer Murders after 2 more series are made - 16 episodes, his final epsiode scheduled to be screened in 2011.However, the series is apparently set to continue after Nettles leaves.

The original novels, by Caroline Graham, are located in the Chilter
ns area north-west of London. In The Killings At Badgers Drift, Barnaby's home village is located 30 miles from Slough, infamous for John Betjemin's poem, Heathrow Airport - and of course, David Brent!

The TV series was shot mainly in the counties of Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire, with many scenes also filmed in Oxfordshire, and as far as Wales and Devon. Here is is great site which gives details and pictures of nearly 200 of the locations used in the shows so far.

That is sad news indeed. Barnaby is one of the series we do get in Denmark, and I enjoy Midsomer so much.

John Nettles is a lovely man - my Mum was a swimming teacher and he used to open their annual fundraising fete - he didn't charge a fee to the club just charged people for a picture with him and the fab vintage car.

A collection of CID 2015 latest films is often witnessed on dailymotion just in case anyone hasn’t received the usage of Sony Leisure channel. CID 2014 regardless of remaining in its 16th calendar year of continuous broadcast continue to manages to keep substantial audience and hence carries on to get cleared for consecutive seasons. The display remains likely powerful which leads me to think that it'll go on in the future also. cid all episodes

Great share. Pay per head service allows the bookmaker to operate all his hard work like handling phone calls, responding texts, keeping records etc. for a little charge to pay.
