Midsummer Murders was intended to be the 10th series of Most Haunted but it was broadcast as a stand-alone series of the show. It saw the Most Haunted team of Yvette Fielding, David Wells and Dr Ciarán O'Keeffe being led by historian Lesley Smith to rural English and Welsh villages to attempt to solve murder mysteries. Participating in vigils were Most Haunted team members Karl Beattie, Stuart Torevell, Catherine (Cath) Howe and Iain Cash.
