It looks like ITV is ready to finally air season 20 of their popular detective drama Midsomer Murders in the UK. Andrew Gower appeared as a guest star in the last episode of the season, “Send in the Clowns”, joining fellow Outlander alumni Annette Badland, Richard Rankin and Being Human‘s Jason Watkins.
Mirror Online mentioned the return of Midsomer Murders to British television next month in an article about “Famous faces” who’ve been killed in the show over the years, and it was also confirmed by Annette Badland via her Twitter account.
