I got the first 4 episodes of Series 19 from the library and YouTube provided the other two episodes in the series. The first four, packed into the Series 19 Part 1 DVD set, aired in December 2016 and January 2017. The other two episodes aired in August 2017 and probably will hit DVD in a few months.The show has been signed to do a 20th series next year.
There's a new sidekick for Neil Dudgeon. Neil plays DCI John Barnaby and Nick Hendrix plays DS Jamie Winter. Fiona Dolman plays John's wife Sarah. They have a little girl. The dog actor playing Sykes the dog retired and the Barnaby's have a new dog named Paddy.
The Village That Rose from the Dead is about a village that's been in the hands of the Army since WW2. It's finally being turned over to the local citizens and there are several redevelopment plans vying for the land. A guy is found crushed by a tank the day the village is being handed over. Comedian Hugh Dennis, as seen regularly on Mock The Week, plays a local who gets done in. It was a good episode and I like the new sidekick.
Crime and Punishment has a butcher turn up dead in his meat freezer. Barnaby and Jamie visit the isolated town of Bleakridge where the neighborhood watch patrol group is a problem.
Last Man Out sees the return of DI Ben Jones, he's undercover and out of the loop Jamie thinks he's a suspect in a murder.
Just a fun picture of the rozzers.
Red in Tooth & Claw brings murder to the summer pet show at Beauville Hall. Steve Pemberton guests as a bunny breeder who's rabbit vanishes.
Death by Persuasion brings murder to a Jane Austin dress up event but the reason has to do with something much more high tech.
The Curse of the Ninth is about a stolen Stradivarius violin. Plenty of high strung musicians means plenty of suspects.
Another good bunch of episodes. I've liked the series enough to keep on buying the sets as they get cheaper.
