Whovian Murders

Mark Gatiss co-starred in The Sword of Guillaume in Midsomer Murders, 2010Long running detective drama Midsummer Murders this week featured guest appearances from the gorgeous Lucy Cohu (Alice in Torchwood: Children of Earth), Tim McInnerny (Planet of the Ood‘s Klineman Halpen) and Doctor Who writer and actor Mark Gatiss.

The Sword of Guillaume saw an ancient Norman sword being used to slay the conspirators in a plot to have a disabled, mute man with no heir sire a child with Jenny Russell (Cohu). In the event, thanks to the investigation of the soon to be retiring Inspector Tom Barnaby (the wonderfully understated John Nettles) both Cohu and McInnerny’s characters were found beheaded, with Mark Gatiss – writer of 2005’s The Unquiet Dead and 2006’s The Idiot’s Lantern who also played title role in 2007’s The Lazarus Experiment – severely wounded.

All three actors were evidently enjoying themselves tremendously, but Gatiss probably just edged it with a great turn as a country reverend losing his faith and somehow managing to be the most obvious suspect for most of the episode…
