seems to be an awfully dangerous place. What percentage of the UK's annual murders occur in this deceptively peaceful village?
So I've seen a couple of episodes of this documentary
about life in the English countryside.
Assuming that the film makers were in town at the time of every violent death in the otherwise quaint hamlet, it would seem there are about 15 such deaths there each year. Frankly even this seems cause for great concern. If however, the episodes are an accurate slice of village life it seems that there is about one death a day, which would tally up to about 365 deaths a year.
According to this article
the UK had "624 violent murders in 2007"
is there such a thing as a non violent murder? What does that include, murder via negligence? poisoning?
This would seem to indicate that Midsomer is home to somewhere between 2.5% and 60% of the UK's annual murder toll.
Does anyone have more accurate information about the number of days of which the episodes occur and an accurate death tally?
can anyone make a sound logical mathematical case that 100% of all British murders occur here?
