This was the first episode from series 15 and it kicked off in style with a reinactment of the Civil War, a mysterious headless horse man and of course a murder or two! Barnaby and Jones are called in to find the murder amongst an aristocratic family of Quitewell Hall.
Set in beautiful countryside this stately home certainly set the tone for the episode, some of your may have noticed that this was actually Knebworth House in Hertfordshire. This episode was also produced for the first time by Jo Wright the former drama chief at BBC, LWT and Talkback Thames. Jo is planning to explore the relationship between Barnaby and Jones as she see’s a definite bromance going on!
Watching the final 15 minutes I felt the big reveal was very reminiscent of the classic ‘murder reveal in the library’ from a Miss Marple or a Poirot, brilliant stuff!
Good News, if you did miss the episode on ITV1 or are waiting for the DVD we are going to be releasing this shortly (just awaiting materials) and we have negotiated to get an exclusive Neil Dudgeon commentary as an extra on the DVD. You can pre-order your copy now and we will send out the DVDs as soon as they are ready (weeks ahead of general release).Read More
