Midsomer Murders 16, ITV1. Arri Alexa

VMI have supplied equipment to the 16th series of Midsomer Murders for Bentley Productions which was the first series since it was first aired in 1997 to be shot on ARRI Alexa and Zeiss UltraPrime lenses. The double Alexa camera kit includes a Canon C300 PL camera as a supplementary 3rd camera for convenience when working in confined situations.

DCI John Barnaby, a cousin of the original detective moves in to fight crime in the beautiful but deadly villages of Midsomer. Based on the novels by Caroline Graham.

The current lead character is DCI John Barnaby (Neil Dudgeon) who works for Causton CID. Dudgeon's character is the younger cousin of former lead character Tom Barnaby (John Nettles). Dudgeon joined the show in 2011 following Nettles's departure. The stories revolve around the Barnabys' efforts to solve the numerous murders that take place in the fictional English county of Midsomer. The Barnabys have had a few sergeants throughout the run of the show: DS Gavin Troy (Daniel Casey), DS Dan Scott (John Hopkins) and DS Ben Jones (Jason Hughes).

The 16th series of Midsomer Murders was aired on ITV1 from late 2013 to mid 2014.
