DVD 7 - Strangler's Wood
Barnaby is hoping for some father-daughter bonding with Cully while Joyce is away nursing her sick mother. However his hopes soon fade when a naked woman is discovered strangled by a tie round her neck in woodland, where three women were murdered in the same fashion nine years before. Barnaby, with the help of Sergeant Troy, has to decide whether it's the same murderer back with a vengeance or if someone else is pulling their own evil strings.
DVD 8 - Dead man's Eleven
DCI Barnaby and DS Troy investigate the murder of Tara Cavendish, who is beaten to death with a cricket mallet near a quarry on her husband's estate. She is the young wife of Robert Cavendish, a local landowner who is also captain of the Fletcher's Cross cricket team. He is disliked by many: his son, Stephen, who resents his father and is having an affair with a local barmaid, Trish; Charles Jennings, whom Cavendish recently dismissed from the cricket team; and a group of locals who resent that Cavendish has closed a public footpath that ran across his estate. The mystery deepens when it turns out Cavendish's previous housekeeper, Emily Beavis, died in a fall at the quarry site some 18 months previously. With that information, Barnaby is convinced that the two deaths are connected.
Includes DVD and Companion guide for both episodes.
