In this 17th feature-length episode of the British detective series Midsomer Murders, provincial DCI Tom Barnaby (John Nettles) is summoned when local doctor Oliver Burgess (Ian McNeice) believes he has struck a pedestrian while driving home from his favorite pub -- only to discover that the "victim" is nowhere to be found. This curious incident coincides with the disappearance of an Irishman who has recently and mysteriously popped up in the village. Adding to the intrigue is the upcoming wedding of the daughter of Melvyn Stockard (Larry Lamb), a former criminal with whom Barnaby has tilted in the past. The nuptials are put on hold when the Best Man is murdered; could this tragedy possibly be related to the aforementioned disappearances? First telecast in the U.K. on September 9, 2001, "Who Killed Cock Robin" aired in the U.S. via the A&E cable network on October 5, 2002.
