It proved to be a DISAPPOINTMENT for Midsomer Murder fans after a new episode scheduled to air at the weekend was cancelled - after being filmed in this area.

The popular drama series, which is filmed in Wallingford, was due to air on ITV1 on Sunday, January 8.

The special Prince Harry interview with journalist Tom Bradby was broadcast in its place. The pre-recorded 90-minute interview saw Harry speak about his experience leaving the Royal Family.

The schedule shakeup meant that the fifth episode of season 22, For Death Prepare, which was meant to air from 8pm was axed.
