Midsomer Murders spoilers

Nestled in Midsomer, the village of Blacktrees-on-Marsh was rumoured to be a target in Cold War documents—a story likely spun at the local pub, The Huntsman’s Horn, yet believed by many.

Haunted by the ‘Blacktrees Prophecy’, the village saw the creation of Midsomer’s first doomsday prepper group, initiated by Warren Kaine. Warren, haunted by PTSD from a past disaster, built a bombproof bunker, fully stocked for emergencies.

His perceived moment of vindication comes with a false alert of a nuclear attack. Rushing to his bunker, Warren sends for his fellow preppers, but the crisis is a hoax. By morning, instead of chaos, peace prevails. Warren’s wife, Clodagh, finds him suffocated in the bunker, the air supply cut off.


Detectives Barnaby and Winter arrive to investigate. With Warren’s death possibly linked to his bunker, they must uncover the motive behind the murder before the killer strikes again.

Midsomer Murders airs Sunday on ITV1 and ITVX.
