ITV’s Midsomer Murders returned to our screens on April 11th for episode 2 of season 22 but just who appeared in the cast of The Stitcher society?

Midsomer Murders has graced our screens for over 20 years and in that time countless actors have come and gone.

Each new episode gives us a fresh murder mystery to solve with a host of guest stars making up the list of suspects.

The same can be said in episode 2 of season 22 of Midsomer Murders but just who appears in the cast of The Stitcher Society?


Midsomer Murders season 22, episode 2: The Stitcher Society

Episode 2 of Midsomer Murders’ 22nd series aired on ITV on April 11th, 2021.

The episode sees a local outcast, Toby Wagner – who was controversially acquitted of murder years previously – inducted into the titular Stitcher Society, a club for recovering heart bypass patients to give them a new lease of life.

Time at the club is largely harmonious until Toby’s return causes outrage and coincides with the murder of the Stitcher Society’s founder, Reuben Tooms.
