Synopsis by Hal Erickson
First telecast in England on January 29, 2000, Judgement Day was the 12th feature-length entry in the Midsomer Murders mystery series. The citizens of Midsomer Mallow are all atwitter in their efforts to win the Perfect Village competition. Alas, a pall is cast on the festivities when a local thief and philanderer is killed with a pitchfork. Inspector Tom Barnaby (John Nettles) really has his work cut out for him this time, inasmuch as seemingly everybody in town had motive and opportunity. Making matters worse, two of the Perfect Village judges are likewise murdered in the same grisly fashion. Based on a novel by Caroline Graham, Midsomer Murders: Judgement Day made its American cable-TV debut by way of the A&E network on January 13, 2001.
