2x1 - Ombra della morte

Barnaby and Troy are in Badger's Drift again, this time to investigate the murder of an unpopular property developer called Richard Bayly who had been suffering from a brain tumour.

The members of the syndicate come under suspicion, and the killing continues when Dr John Osgood, the lover of Bruce's wife Marianna, is also found dead - and even the Gold Cup-winning horse Bantling Boy falls sick.

But later that day, Leo is found dead in the practice area, pummelled by cricket balls… At the cricket ground, Barnaby is surprised when he encounters his old DS Ben Jones. Jones introduces himself as Leo's teammate ‘Jack Morris' and warns an intrigued Barnaby not to blow his cover. In the dark about Jones' real identity, Winter's hackles are raised. Barnaby learns from Leo's friends, Serena and Elliot Luthando, that fast-paced C10 is not everyone's cup of tea. Council members St John Beachwood and Germaine Troughton, a famous ex-cricketer, hate its vulgarity and plan a village vote to decide whether it stays. Later that night, Jones consoles Leo's widow Melody. An intruder breaks in but Jones fails to catch him. Once Melody goes to bed, Jones finds a bag of cash hidden in Leo's study. Meanwhile, venerable St John makes a phone call asking someone to come home… but who is he speaking to? Best friends Melody and Serena discuss a special anniversary and later Serena ceremonially places a flower by a tree, marking the trunk with a knife.

After Lower Pampling's win, Jones is approached by captain Fitz Theara who bribes him to fix the final. Serena returns home to find an anxious Elliot glued to his computer.

Fate deals him a cruel blow when he is stabbed through the heart with a cricket stump… At the crime scene, Barnaby spots twenty notches on the tree and tasks Winter to find out what happened in the village twenty years ago. Jones comes clean to Barnaby and Winter about his undercover investigation into match-fixing, revealing both Leo and Fitz's involvement.

Meanwhile Winter unearths an article about Cilla Troughton, Germaine's daughter, who went missing twenty years ago. Nothing has been seen or heard from her since. But after receiving a strange summons, a terrified Serena and Melody meet at the tree to find Cilla herself there. St John asked her to come home once Leo was dead.

19x4 - Rossa di sangue e d'artiglio

When DCI Barnaby and DS Winter discover a dead body covered in live rabbits it reveals a sinister side to the local pet show. Is this a rivalry taken too far or is the killer driven by something darker? Under cover of darkness, local Estate Agent Seb Huntington releases animals from their cages at the Belville Small Pet Show. Someone confronts Seb and the following morning Ailsa Benson arrives to set up her pet food stall to find Seb dead, surrounded by escaped bunnies... At the crime scene Barnaby and Winter meet Locum Pathologist Dr Oliver Marcet. While Winter hides his disappointment that Kam is on a course, Barnaby learns the victim died from a stab wound to the neck. Hearing Ailsa Benson’s alibi, Barnaby and Winter next interview Seb’s distraught girlfriend Tegan Langton and her boss, Hall owner and Pet Show patron the stately Delphi Hartley. Finding no reason anyone would want to harm Seb or sabotage the show, they leave Tegan to be comforted by best friend Shray Varma - watched from afar by the mysterious Errol Judd. Barnaby and Winter go to see Cleo Langton, Tegan’s mum and Seb’s boss at the Estate Agents, and discover Seb was trying to get Delphi to sell the hall, but Delphi wasn’t interested. Theorising the murderer might be a competitor sabotaging the show, Barnaby and Winter next visit Best In Show defending champion Timothy Benson, whose alibi unwittingly throws suspicion back onto his estranged wife Ailsa. Timothy is distraught to discover Hercules has been kidnapped. Meanwhile in a secret room an unknown figure strokes the sleeve of a luxury fur coat. When Winter gleans from Seb’s computer that he was sabotaging the show, Barnaby posits that someone murdered Seb to stop him. Winter reveals that local hotelier Perry Tressel has form for animal rights campaigning and fits the bill. Winter follows up on Ailsa’s dodgy alibi at the pet shop, learning of her affair with charming builder Jayesh Varma and sensing Ailsa is hiding something. At the pet friendly hotel he runs with wife Belinda, Perry dismisses his activism as ancient history. Upset at having uncovered wife Ailsa’s affair with charming builder Jayesh Varma, Barnaby witnesses Timothy accuse fellow competitor Cleo of stealing Hercules so she will win Best In Show. Cleo drives off, passing Errol Judd. She immediately turns round and attempts to run him over. Back at the show Barnaby witnesses workmen taking the sponsorship boards down and tasks Winter to looking into Delphi’s finances, finding she’s broke. Confronting her, Barnaby discovers Seb sabotaged the show to try to force Delphi to sell the hall earning him a big commission. When Errol reveals to Tegan he is her long lost father, Tegan reacts angrily towards Cleo – she lied saying he was dead. However, driving home it is Cleo who struggles for breath and ends up dead... When Oliver reveals Cleo died from respiratory distress, Barnaby cleverly identifies it was murder. Digging into ex-husband Errol, Winter uncovers a colourful past that puts him in the frame – along with the angry Tegan, vengeful Timothy and the Varma’s, who Barnaby discovers were suing Cleo for negligence. Facing financial ruin, Delphi reveals to Tegan she owns the luxury fur coats and plans to sell them to save the Hall and show – but they’ve been stolen. Tracing Cleo’s movements helps Winter to find the scissors used to kill Seb. Discovering they belong to Timothy Benson leads Timothy to confess - not to killing Seb or Cleo, but to the fact the real Hercules had died and he’d replaced him with a look-a-like. Fearing he’d be caught led to the kidnapping. When Winter catches Ailsa and Jayesh with Delphi’s missing fur coats, their revenge plot is foiled. Back at the show, Errol is knocked unconscious by an unknown assailant. Learning Errol plans to take Tegan away with him, Barnaby deduces the murders are all linked to Tegan, and Errol is in mortal danger. Racing back to the show, Barnaby & Winter arrive just in time to catch the killer...
