Series 18 Episode 4 “A Dying Art”
Originally broadcast 3 February 2016
Art comes to the picturesque Midsomer village of Angel’s Rise with the opening of a new Sculpture Park. But when its launch is marred by murder, DCI Barnaby and DS Nelson have to get creative to crack a case where art imitates death, and everything has a deeper meaning.
Things really get silly here. Apparently a few sculptures in a field is enough to sustain the man. The characters are cardboard cutout caricatures of the British class system. And it all comes down in the end to a woman with a grudge. Rather forgettable.
