    Anyone here share my interest in English detective story, movie and mystery. I cant seem to get enough of it. From Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie to the modern day Midsummer Murder. The plot are usually predictable but the set of old mansion, Tudor house, long families secret and adulterous affair is just my kind of stuff.

    For those who into this stuff, let share our little secret.

    ME!
    I'm an addict.
    Many people simply don't understand how we can feel all warm and cozy reading about gruesome murders and decapitations in quaint English-country-side hamlets.

    My father gifted me with a complete collection of every Sherlock Holmes story when I was 13. They became my regular bedtime reading, and I still enjoy them, even if I know how every one will turn out. Never got into any other detective stories, though.

    How about Morse and n ow his successor, Lewis? They are set in the dreaming spires of Oxford. Lewis's assistant, Hathaway is well - you decide!

    The Midsomer Murders series have been running for more than 10 years, it must be the unluckiest village in the world.

    I also like Morse and some episodes of A Touch of Frost are also good. They tend to show England in a more realistic light than Midsomer.

    Midsomer Murders, Agatha Christie, Sherlock Holmes, Rosemary & Thyme, and also Murder Rooms: Mysteries of the Real Sherlock Holmes. I am happy to see so many others share my delight in these television shows and books.

    Red,

    I dont know Midsomer Murder have been around that long. Over here in Malaysia and neighbouring Thailand, you can only see it via satelite TV on Hallmark channel. John Nettles (that a hot older men) is just so perfect .

    There something about this English mystery that are warm and wonderful.
    It just the setting are so English , damp foggy weather, those Tudor house, Brit accent, English garden couple that with who do it mystery, hidden family secret, decaying manor.

    My ex American bf, once bought me a set of black and white Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes VCD when he visit me in 1992. However they cannot be use anymore now that we are using DVD. It probably hidden somewhere in my dusty attic or some old suitcase. Now that one mystery I need to solve. "The case of missing Sherlock Holmes VCD"
