The village green, second only to Lords as a natural home of English cricket, a place where the icy, money tentacles of show business have not crept in and the game remains pure, cricket at its most gentlemanly, where the only thing to worry about is bitter rivalry, untamed jealousy and the wearing down of the natural order; where the Last Man Out might still buy the round or quite easily find himself the target of death.

Competitive cycling has had its detractors over the years, it has its champions, its heroes and its fallen idols, the gold body supported by the lead base and the fragile Earth beneath and yet the spanner always finds a way to throw itself into the works and take the sport down a slippery slope in which one could not easily fathom.

Too many cooks can spoil the broth, or at least, make it inedible due to the nature of the toxic substance found lurking within its fatal ingredients.

In Midsomer, the trouble an old church relic can cause is enough to drive a whole village to thoughts of murder.

It is a good job that the county of Midsomer is a fictional region. Not because of the many murders, ever intriguing, ever inventive. It is the abundance of the Detective Sergeants that pass through the doors of the Police Station in Causton that make the programme, though entertaining and almost compulsive viewing, a baffling place in which regular continuality strikes real terror in the community.
