Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In this two-hour episode of the long-running British mystery series Midsomer Murder, the owner of the rural Easterly Grange Hotel passes away, bequeathing his establishment to four very different people. One of the heirs, a fairground entertainer, disappears shortly afterward -- and within a few days, his severed hand is found. Several more deaths occur before Detective Chief Constable Tom Barnaby (John Nettles) and his assistant, Detective Sergeant Gavin Troy (Daniel Casey) can determine what exactly is going on and who is responsible. First telecast over Britain's ITV on August 26, 2001, Midsomer Murders: Destroying Angel made its American cable-TV bow courtesy of the A&E Network on August 26, 2001.
