There's a forum! I searched just on the offchance. After ignoring this show whenever I came across it on PBS, I've become addicted through watching it on Acorn. I don't know whether to hurry up and binge it before it leaves every platform, or try to stretch it out. It's the perfect cozy police show. I love the settings, the houses, the woods, the denizens of all the towns and villages, the village events. I love Tom Barnaby and Troy. It's a show where I can be watch/listening while I do handwork or fold laundry or work on a jigsaw puzzle on my tablet. It's just creepy enough, i.e., there are often rather twisted motivations and sometimes a nod to superstition. It's like they made a Merrie England travelogue with crime added, for the benefit of Anglophiles everywhere.
Sad to say, I just finished Troy's last episode, The Green Man. It was just the type of episode I like, with the woodland scenes, the campfire, the night sounds of the forest, a pub named The Green Man. The mystery was nothing great (as so often), but having the side plot about past times helped to make up for that.
I will hate to see Tom Barnaby exit, but I have a few good seasons before that happens. Can any UK posters confirm that the seasons were only 5 episodes each?
I read through the whole forum when i found it, and already want to rewatch some episodes based on comments. One ep that has bothered me is the one with the psychiatrist who helps Tom and who has three kids.
Anybody else think this? Did I miss something?
