In July last year a film crew installed themselves for several days at Church End, to create an episode of Midsomer Murders.

For several days Haddenham became 'Midsomer Oaks' and St Mary's Church featured prominently as a backcloth. The Green Dragon pub was re-named 'The Green Man' and a property facing Church End Green became a flower shop called 'Blossoms on the Green'.

If you'd like to see the episode, we understand that it will be broadcast on ITV this Wednesday evening, 4th February, from 8.00pm-10.00pm

The programme will doubtless offer some light relief from the hassles we've experienced with AVDC in recent days. At least when we watch Midsomer Murders, our incredulity is only pushed to a modest degree!

Here's a taster of the plot:

"When a pub landlady is crushed to death during a magic show in Midsomer Oaks, Barnaby and Nelson uncover conflict between the village church and ancient pagan traditions. Is famous magician Gideon Latimer to blame or is he the target?"

Technical Issue:

We understand that the 'location' of the ITV has changed in the last few days in terms of its broadcast frequency. This means that you may have to re-programme your TV's digital tuner, set-top box or Sky box if you have pre-programmed your TV system to record Midsomer Murders on Wednesday evening. Apparently, you may need to re-set this operation.
