Everybody always talks about the high murder rate in Cabot Cove, Maine, but Midsomer county in England might top their record.  Of course, that's looking at Midsomer county as a whole - if you just went by individual villages in the county, the spread thins out.  

And there are quite a number of villages in Midsomer!  I don't know if I'll ever see all of the episodes of 'Midsomer Murders', and I haven't been keeping track of those that I have seen, but it seems that several of these villages had to be used over again in other storylines.  (They certainly have had more than their fair share of murders in just the separate investigations!)

If any other location could give either Midsomer or Cabot Cove a run for their money in the murder game, it would have to be Oxford University......

For those of you unfortunate enough to be stuck in the real world and unable to visit the "real" Midsomer, you can take the various trail tours in the Wallingford area.
