Thursday, October 25 starting at 9:00 p.m.

Former secret agent Geoffrey Larkin arrives in Midsomer Parva and stays at Allenby House, a country mansion run by former spies Sir Malcolm Frazer (Benjamin Whitrow), his son Nicky (Peter Davison) and Nicky’s wife Jenny (Alice Krige) as a safe house. Geoffrey is soon gashed to death after a cricket match in Midsomer Parva, and the locals blame the ‘beast of Midsomer’. However, Barnaby – a former spy himself – soon realises that the killing has links to Allenby House and Cold War Berlin, but is initially thrown off the case by MI6. But when a further murder occurs he is put back on the case.
