Midsomer Murders spoilers
Beautiful manor house, Apley Court, on the edge of the village of Granville Norton is home to historic hives that produce ‘Apley Gold’ honey; a valuable top of the range honey. Bee obsessive Lord of the manor Ambrose Deddington (Griff Rhys Jones), the eighth generation of honey producers at Apley Court, is a survivor of a life-threatening cancer, for which he cites a combination of Apley Gold and bee venom from his famous bees as his saviour. And with the unyielding support of his sister Tamara (Imogen Stubbs), his faith in its extraordinary healing power has brought Ambrose success, wealth and a dedicated following of Apitherapy devotees.
For years now Ambrose has maintained his status as top dog of the village, with his wealth and aristocratic title ensuring his position. But that position comes under threat when he and his precious hives are attacked by a masked assailant.
Barnaby (Neil Dudgeon) and Winter (Nick Hendrix) are called in to investigate, with Ambrose convinced that the only person of interest should be his nephew Jude (Jack Fox), who was outlawed from the family pile years ago with his mother Melissa (Jacquetta May).
