Jones draws the short straw once again as he is assigned to an unofficial and undercover investigation as “Cosmo”. Fending off romantic advances and forced to wear a colourful scarf, Sergeant Jones pursues the trail of a missing woman who was once a member of a secretive cult.

The strange rules and regulations of the commune make it difficult to liaise with DCI Barnaby, who seems more preoccupied with securing a dog sitter. Meanwhile, locals postulate on the disappearance of Lucy Oliver and the untimely death of the Lamberts, who used to own the hall occupied by the Oblong Foundation.

A surprise retirement will see the crime team at Midsomer changing in the near future. Will it be a local or maybe even a love interest for Jones?

“Midsomer Murders: The Oblong Murders” airs on 23rd May 2011 at 9pm on ITV for UK viewers only.
