Judgement Day | 2000
Amidst the excitement of preparing for a village competition in Midsomer Mallow, the body of Peter Drinkwater is found with a pitchfork protruding from his chest. The villagers are determined to keep it quiet -- so as not to jeopardize their chances in the competition. Detective Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby discovers that the victim was not popular in the village. The Deveres knew that their daughter was in love with the handsome rogue and had proclaimed that she would marry him over their dead bodies. Then there was the jealous husband of another of Peter's lovers, as well as the man whose home Peter was suspected of burglarizing. Just as the competition gets underway, another killing is witnessed by the entire village. Barnaby and Troy find that the connection between the two killings concerns an event that ocurred 50 years earlier.
