Midsomer Murders returns to ITV tonight - but who's on the cast of The Curse of the Ninth episode?
Here's a spoiler-filled look at the latest show this evening at 8PM on ITV.
In the The Curse of the Ninth, shock waves rocket through Thassingham Festival when Jacob Wheeler is awarded the Falconer Bursary instead of the supremely talented Zac Sowande – but shock soon turns to horror when Jacob is found murdered, strangled by violin string.
Barnaby’s initial investigation begins by focussing on Jacob’s fellow musicians and their charismatic maestro Michael Falconer, who is using the festival to debut his Ninth Symphony while simultaneously belittling his own musician son, Dan.
Barnaby discovers that musicians tend to think of a ninth symphony as being cursed which is being linked to Jacob’s death as he would have been the lead violinist on Michael’s composition. Michael pretends he’s not concerned with the Curse and secretly demands the return of the loan he gave to his sister Janey to start the Rafferty Distillery in order to ensure the Festival and his symphony go ahead as planned.
As Barnaby and Winter dig deeper into the mystery they discover a vital piece of information from a mysterious teenager’s skeleton that turns the case on its head. From those lonely bones and with the help of a necklace, Barnaby discovers that Jacob was definitely not what he seemed and leads to the true but surprising killer.
Meanwhile, Kam finally follows through with her plan to leave Midsomer despite her emotional connection with Winter but Sarah is sure that it’s for the best.
