What's the title? Maybe I can get it on DVD later.

The dogleg murders but alas he is only in two short scenes. He does a good job, and his character imparts some useful info, and is seen playing Badminton, but it might not be worth buying if Midsomer's not your usual cup of tea. I'm only watching because I'm feeling a bit rubbish this week.

Incidentally - noticeable how tall Michael K is, compared to Vila. I know everyone says that, but, boy.

Ah, pity for him he didn't get a bigger part.

I've heard Midsomer Murders are good, but I've never seen them, and there seems a lot to catch up on. Perhaps I should see if I can rent them.

He's almost 6 feet, I think, but decided to play Vila as a small man. You can see how he does it if you look: he hunches and bends his knees.

I've seen a few Midsomer Murders (I have a soft spot for John Nettles since Bergerac) but not many. They seem reasonably stand-alone murder-mysteries, though.

That's encouraging! I might give them a go, but I know there are a lot and I was worried there might be character arcs.

Oh, there could well be character arcs, but just because I didn't know what they were didn't prevent my enjoyment.

I think they are OK: very undemanding. I think they work as standalones, because I've no idea about the characters at all.

I didn't for a few moments, and I've got two icons of him. He radiated that flawed niceness though. Perhaps whenever they want 'pleasant gent with addiction problems' vibe they'll go for Michael K. Hope so.

My Eastenders watching friend tells me that MK regularly appears on it as a priest, whatever ceremony they're doing, and wherever in the city it is. Hence his nickname for him: the Vicar of London.

That's so funny. I hope he plays all the Rabbis and Imams too.
