Whenever the wolf monster kills, he announces his actions by splashing a pair of glowing red wolf eyes on the door of the next victim. Naturally, this time the wolf howl is added to the atmospheric “Barnaby” soundtrack. DCI John Barnaby and his Assistant Sergeant Jamie Winter (Nick Hendrix) have to stop the wolf monster, not least because “Barnaby” fan Queen Elizabeth worries that Midsummer won’t be a good day without the populace.
