Masterpiece Mystery

Okay. Now it's Sunday night. And there's nothing on. So I'm watching Masterpiece Mystery on PBS. A murder case involving historical reenactment. English people reenact a battle from their Civil War.

Seems like there was an old episode of The Avengers which took place among people who were into medieval reenactment.

And was there a made for TV movie or some pilot I saw? It would have been about 30 years ago. Two amateur sleuths race to prevent a murder. One of the would-be killers says they'll knock the victim off his pace. They realize that the victim has a pacemaker and they plan to murder him with a microwave oven. Which is ironic since it had some sort of medieval reenactment thing happening, if I remember correctly.
