What is The Witches of Angel's Rise about?

The official synopsis is as follows: "Each year, the Midsomer village of Angel's Rise hosts an annual Psychic Fayre in the vast and gothic Eddon Hall. Founded by the Saint-Stephens family in memory of their late daughter, the event attracts all manner of mediums, psychics and followers of the occult.

"When a body is found surrounded by ritual symbols on the eve of the gathering, Barnaby must step into a world of self-proclaimed witches to find the killer."

Neil Dudgeon returns as DCI John Barnaby, with Nick Hendrix by his side as DS Jamie Winter.

Fiona Dolman will also return as John's wife, Sarah Barnaby, as well as Paddy the dog – the family's "faithful canine companion".

In season 20, EastEnders' Annette Badland joined the team as "formidable" new pathologist Dr Fleur Perkins, replacing pathologist Dr Kam Karimore (Manjinder Virk), who moved to Canada at the end of season 19. Badland remains a part of the cast.

Neil Dudgeon said: "The team thought it would be interesting to introduce a character who would test Barnaby, somebody with whom he would have a more provocative relationship, and Fleur does just that."

There's also John and Sarah's daughter Betty, played by Isabel Shaw.
