Midsomer Murders, Set 21

 (TV) (2011)

Midsomer Murders, Set 21 Blu-ray delivers stunning video and solid audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Homicide, blackmail, greed, and betrayal: just a taste of what goes on behind the well-trimmed hedges of Midsomer County. Inspired by the novels of Caroline Graham, "the best detective writer since Agatha Christie" (Sunday Times, UK), this British series is deliciously sinister and darkly humorous.

For more about Midsomer Murders, Set 21 and the Midsomer Murders, Set 21 Blu-ray release, see Midsomer Murders, Set 21 Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Midsomer Murders, Set 21 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Further research into the shooting format of Midsomer Murders indicates that its early years (1997-2004) were filmed in 1.33:1 format. These episodes were probably shot on film, as were the transitional years (2004-2009), when the show adopted an aspect ratio of 1.78:1. Since 2009 (or series 12), it appears that Midsomer Murders has been shot on hi-def video. Its presentation at 1080i on the previous two sets from Acorn Media would be consistent with HD origination, given the practice to date with British TV.

However, as with the BBC's recent release of The Hour Season 2 on Blu-ray, Acorn Media seems to be coming around to the understanding that HD-originated material deserves the same quality of treatment as film. The four episodes in Set 21 arrive on two 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray discs, and the result is the best-looking set of Midsomer Murders to date. Clarity, detail, depth of field, color and black levels remain superb, and the image has gained an additional smoothness and sheen from the 1080p encoding, with no noticeable video noise remaining and no more signs of aliasing or artifacts (with the sole exception of the end credits, which look like they've been poorly upconverted from an interlaced source). Let us hope that this move to all-1080p remains permanent, because the source materials are clearly worth showing off at their best.


Midsomer Murders, Set 21 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The third time was the charm! The jacket copy now accurately states that the sound format for Midsomer Murders on Blu-ray is DTS-HD MA 2.0, as it has been on the previous sets. The sound design continues to be basic and functional, with emphasis on dialogue and sparing use of music. The DTS lossless track conveys the dialogue clearly, and Jim Parker's signature theme continues to provide the appropriately macabre note of fascination, especially in the signature theremin version that opens and closes every episode.
