It’s always great when you turn on the TV and there’s an episode of Midsomer Murders being screened. Especially when you didn’t know it was going to happen or it wasn’t listed. Thanks largely to the fact that Midsomer is one of the most exported British TV programmes in history, this can even happen when you are in a foreign country on holiday.
What with so many episodes on TV at all times, in all places, and the availability of box sets too, you might think that you had all the avenues covered for watching Midsomer. But there is one new way of watching that is proving very popular too. Namely downloading from iTunes.

This is especially the case as it has just been announced that some of your favourite Midsomer Murders episodes will be free to download over the next two weeks on iTunes. You can start downloading today. That’s right, it’s not a misprint, you can get free Midsomer Murders episodes online for a whole two weeks.

For those of you that are technically minded and like to spend time online, you might also like to know that the Midsomer Facebook page is hosting a special live event on 24 June, and all Midsomer fans are encouraged to join in. Look on their page for more details to follow.

Midsomer and its locations in Southern Oxfordshire may have a certain ageless charm that appeals but its fans are very much in the modern era. And if you haven’t ventured into the world of downloading yet, what better reason to start than free classic Midsomer episodes? It really couldn’t be easier. The only problem is that once you start, you won’t want to stop, and the episodes are only up there for two weeks.
