First telecast in England on March 29, 1998, Death of a Hollow Man was the third feature-length entry in the Midsomer Murders mystery series. The plot is set in motion when the wife of Chief Inspector John Barnaby (John Nettles) joins a local amateur theatrical troupe. As the unpaid thespians mount a production of Amadeus at the Corn Exchange in Causton, the body of an elderly villager is found floating in a stream near Ferne Bassett. No sooner has Barnaby been told that the dead man was attacked and beaten before drowning, another floating body is discovered -- that of Agnes Gray (Denyse Alexander), one of Mrs. Barnaby's fellow actors. Adapted by Caroline Graham from her own novel, Midsomer Murders: Death of a Hollow Man was first shown in America via the A&E cable network on April 14, 2001.
