Midsomer Murders Again Wiki

1860 Ring Out Your Dead is the 1st episode of series five and the 20th episode overall.


A cute new member distracts some of the bell ringers of Midsomer Wellow from concentrating on the upcoming striking competition, but they still manage to place a group bet on a horse called Ring-A-Ding, which wins them £30,000. This combination of gambling and church bell ringing enrages some residents of the village. When one of the ringers is found in the tower, shot through the heart and clutching the ironic words "Ding Dong Bell", Barnaby is not amused.
