Midsomer Murders continues with the first part of "Written in Blood".

The hit crime series Midsomer Murders has become an international phenomenon, airing in more than 200 countries. WXXI is pleased to bring this suspenseful series to its viewers Saturday nights at 10 p.m. Part one of the second episode, Written in Blood airs Saturday, August 9 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

In this episode, Gerald Hadleigh, the secretary of the writers circle in the quiet village of Midsomer Worthy, was never in favor of inviting the best-selling novelist Max Jennings to attend one of their meetings. When Hadleigh is found brutally battered to death, the other members of the circle wish they had heeded his reluctance. Barnaby and Troy discover that Hadleigh was a man of mystery, with no National Insurance number, no relatives and no marriage certificate to match the wedding photo on display in his house. When another body is found, they have a double murder on their hands. Please note, part two of this episode will air Saturday, August 16, 2014 at 10 p.m.

More about the series:
Featuring a lush visual style, quirky and quintessentially English characters and ubiquitous red herrings, this series recalls the classic public television mystery shows from the past. At the center of the Midsomer Murders is Detective Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby (John Nettles), who investigates the killings with a professional, no-nonsense style, ably assisted by his chief deputy, Detective Sergeant Gavin Troy (Daniel Casey). The cases include the inexplicable murder of an old lady in the acclaimed season premiere, the two-part “The Killings at Badger’s Drift,” the brutal bludgeoning of a best-selling novelist in “Written in Blood,” a drowning of an elderly resident in “Death of a Hollow Man” and the killing of a founder of a new-age commune in front of a roomful of people in “Death in Disguise.”
