Filming has begun on the 20th anniversary series of Midsomer Murders, in which Neil Dudgeon returns to play DCI John Barnaby for his seventh year and Nick Hendrix is back as DS Jamie Winter. New to the team is pathologist, Dr Fleur Perkins, played by Annette Badland (Outlander).

Executive producer, Jonathan Fisher, says. “It is a real privilege to be leading this iconic British detective series into its landmark twentieth year. As part of our celebrations, we will be treating our very loyal audience with nods back to some of the most memorable moments of the show’s history,”

“Meanwhile we are thrilled to welcome the wonderfully talented Annette Badland to the cast as our formidable new pathologist Fleur Perkins. We’re sure Fleur will prove to be a vibrant and much-loved Midsomer character.”

Annette Badland says: “I have always enjoyed living dangerously so arriving at Midsomer is thrilling! In truth I’m delighted to be involved in the twentieth series of Midsomer Murders and to work alongside and be part of this creative team. I hope Fleur can assist Barnaby in maintaining his high success rate of crime detection. She is very good at her job.”
