Series 18 Episode 1 “Habeas Corpus”
Originally broadcast 6 January 2016
When wealthy landowner Gregory Lancaster’s body goes missing on the night of his death, a sinister web of secrets and lies is exposed in the village of Little Malton. DCI Barnaby, DS Nelson and new Forensic Pathologist Kam Karimore are drawn into a macabre world of body-snatching as they seek to identify the villain.
First appearance of Dr. Kam Karimore.
Missing bodies and murder. This suffers from the inactivity of the main police protagonists. Most of the story happens not because of Barnaby and Nelson’s sleuthing, but through the interactions of the characters.
