When I am feeling down, I visit Midsumer. DCI Tom Barnaby and his sidekicks investigate crimes in that most criminal of counties. After Tom retired, his cousin John took over the job. But that was ok, because, really, the star of the show is Midsomer itself.
I like that they were happily married and the show was about the case at the moment with helpful moments from Joyce- and they adore their daughter and raised her well- no relationship/bad kid drama....It was John Nettles idea to be a happily married cop.
