Midsomer Murder Mystery

Flagdeck

Reminds me of when the makers of Cludo, in the spirit of multiculturism, introduced a black guy along with Colonel Mustard, Proff. Plum etc..................now all you have to do is find the weapon and the room.
 
The show's a whodunnit right? You're supposed to try and guess?
If there were people of colour in it, well you'd know who done it wouldn't you!

I always wondered what I liked about that show....
Ethnic minorities always seem to be unhappy/dripping about something....If they want a programe featuring black faces they should have let them keep the Black & White Minstral Show...

What an original thought!

What does 'discrimotory' mean oh Great White Patriot?

It should be discriminatory but Microsoft outlook spellcheck accepts it as a real word. It doesn't seem to have a meaning though when googled spooky.

On further investigation it has been manually added to the dictionary by someone other than me. Sorry for the speeling erroar.

My bold

Very good. Deflecting an argument as well as trying to belittle a poster who has diametrically opposite views as to yourself all in one sentence.

I agree; and probably destroyed a thread in the making.

Ho hum :sleepy2:

Diesel: But it was a crap thread ayway; a bunch of DM-reading farts getting outraged [sic]about a crap programme that nobody really watches anyway, about a way of life that has not existed in this country for decades. Just ask the ethic members of Wallingford in Oxfordshire, where much of the programme was filmed, whether they felt their community contributions were acknowledged by the programme makers... :roll:

Good bit of publicity for a crap programme that nobody watched in the first place... :roll:

Thats a lot of nobodies

Midsomer Murders is sold to 206 territories, including the United States.

The pilot episode The Killings at Badger’s Drift attracted a 13.5 million audience at its launch in 1997 – the highest rating single drama in that year. The series regularly attracts high audiences, even repeat episodes, constantly winning its slot and beating the opposition

Very few ethanic persons in Dorset rural villages, non in mine or several of the other villages nearby. Before the outrage starts among the normal lefties this is factual not racial

And why do you think that is? I imagine the house prices are only partly to blame... :oops:

To provide some balancing perspective, the population of Wallingford is reported to be "over 7,000" (Ox Towns link) of which "more than 100" (Indy link) are from "ethnic groups". While c.1.4% of the population is not zero, it is hardly a 'significant' minority in terms of numbers and visibility.

NG: And while a large number of the significant members of the (white) members of Wallingford have appeared as characters in MSM, how many non-white members where asked?

This is the basis of the production company's investigation into the Producer's comments.

I was watching a programme about Eskimos and I think it's dashed unfair that not one black eskimo was apparent, init inuit.:blackeye:
