Midsomer Murders Adds Asian Characters

Last year, the creator of British crime show Midsomer Murders was forced to resign after he said he would never cast people of color or other minorities on the show because that wouldn't be "British" enough. So now, a promising update: they're adding characters who are a father and daughter of Asian descent. Progress! (I still haven't actually watched this show, but from what I've heard, it's enjoyable, so I'm happy to hear this.)

  1. Wow! I had no idea he said that! We watch the show as a family all the time and really enjoy it. I'm embarrassed now to say I never noticed the missing minorities. Ugh, me. :( But to purposefully not cast them for that reason? LAME!
