As many residents of Haddenham will have spotted, another episode of Midsomer Murders has been filmed in the village over the last few days, with Church End as a primary backdrop.

Occasional vistors to Haddenham may have been confused by some of the local signage during this time, however, as certain names were changed to protect the innocent.

The Green Dragon became The Green Man, while part of David Truesdale's home at Church End assumed the role of a florist called Blossoms on the Green.

Perhaps the most important change was the name of the village itself. How many of those who wandered across Church End Green recently actually spotted that they were now living in the village of Midsomer Oaks?

Ever keen to assist the local constabulary, your website editor did all he could to offer his services as a police photographer. Sadly, this was not greeted with much enthusiasm by those responsible for crafting this particular examination of evil goings on in rural Buckinghamshire.

We understand that DCI John Barnaby, with the able assistance of his sidekick, Sergeant Charlie Nelson, will have solved the 'who dunnit' by about 10.00pm this evening (Monday), after which time our village should return to its former status as a murder-free zone!
