Greatly enjoyed watching the new episode of Midsomer Murders this evening. A delight to see David Warner and Samantha Bond.

Silly plot. The new Barnaby will do.

Controversy in the news today about the lack of racial diversity in Midsomer Murders. The programme’s producer, Brian True-May, was quoted in an interview in the Radio Times saying that they don’t have ethnic minorities involved, because “it wouldn’t be the English village with them.”

There is a parallel between the fantasy world of Midsomer and that of Middle-earth; a hairy-toed Barnaby interacts with the very-white inhabitants of the Shire.

Currently watching this week’s afternoon repeat; a 2005 episode called Sauce for the Goose. Annette Crosbie thinks she is going dotty, and someone has just died under a palette-load of chutney, only then to be steam cleaned. Pink peeling skin!

After fourteen years and eighty-one films, John Nettles’ final Midsomer Murders is over. We may never again hear “Hello Cully, what are you doing here?”

Midsomer Murders was proper Sunday evening entertainment, even though ITV have been showing it on Wednesdays recently. And I don’t shout at it, unlike with Marple and occasionally Poirot.

I still think of him as Bergerac, mind.

Today I made three loaves of bread using wholegrain spelt flour. The bread turned out quite well, with the look of regular wholemeal, and a good smell while it was baking. This is the first time I’ve baked with spelt flour. I would love to comment on how the taste of the bread varied from my usual bread, but the two slices I ate tasted mostly of butter, ketchup, and fried eggs. Maybe I’ll have another slice for tasting purposes later this evening.

Midsomer Murders! One of the few things worth watching on ITV. Doesn’t feel right having new episodes on a Wednesday evening, though: Sundays are more fitting for pretty villages, country houses, Joyce Barnaby, and shocking murders.
