MIDSOMER MURDERS

DARK AUTUMN

 


'The Plough' pub, Great Haseley, Oxfordshire - seen in 'Dark Autumn'

A postman has been rather too friendly with a number of women in the village and this results in sinister connotations. Barnaby and Troy play the 'Aunt Sally' game in this episode. Aunt Sally is a game in which wooden batons are thrown at a wooden dolly in an attempt to knock the dolly off of a stand! The game is only played in Oxfordshire. For more information on this game go to http://tradgames.org.uk/games/Aunt-Sally.htm.

The music heard before each death in this episode is called 'The Creep'. See my music page for more details!
