In tonight’s episode of Midsomer Murders, DCI John Barnaby (Neil Dudgeon) and DS Charlie Nelson (Gwilym Lee) are called in to investigate when the lead rider in an international cycling competition in murdered when the race arrives in the Midsomer village of Burwood Mantle.

During the race’s finale, the victim overtook his team-mate to win, leaving the team owner annoyed that he disobeyed his orders, and the rival manager disappointed that his team lost.

However, as the detective duo look into the case, they find themselves drawn into a competitive world of blackmail, bribery and bloodshed, where winning comes at any cost.

Midsomer Murders: Breaking the Chain is scheduled for broadcast tonight (17 April) at 21.00 on Universal (DStv channel 117), with repeat showings on Monday 18 April at 05.20 and Sunday 24 April at 03.10 and 13.00.
