One thing in particular that viewers picked up on is just how many cases she has been a part of.
One fan recently took to Reddit and said: “Has anybody ever counted how many murders Joyce was connected to?”
Another viewer responded and said: “I was thinking she has minions, underlings to do her dirty work.
“She pulls strings and makes secrets known to just the right people to drive them over the edge. But her hands are always clean; she’s at home, trying to make a balanced diet for her dutiful husband.
“Every once in a while, she likes to see the fruit of her handiwork and assure her alibi.”
A far-fetched theory but hey, it’s Midsomer after all!
Midsomer Murders can be streamed on ITV Hub and BritBox, with two new episodes coming later this year.
