He said: "In the new episode there is a character who is an estate agent, and she is the agent who sold the Barnabys their house when they moved to Midsomer ten years ago. It was 2010 when Fiona (Dolman) and I first came to Midsomer... It’s a fantastic job – wonderful crew, beautiful locations, great scripts, marvellous guests, great fun and nice catering… What more could one ask for?"

Nick also opened up about his role, and hinted that Jamie will have an ill-fated romance in season 22, saying: "Winter also meets an enthusiastic policewoman in this episode who he takes a liking to, although things don’t go too smoothly for him. Jade Marie is a WPC who happens to be there at the time of a crime and is very keen to help out. Winter starts to think Jade fancies him and he gets a little big for his boots." 

How many episodes of Midsomer Murders will there be in season 22? 

Like with previous series, there will be four episodes. ITV has confirmed that the titles will be The Sting of Death, With Baited Breath, The Wolf Hunter of Little Worthy and The Stitcher Society
