One of the most interesting game shows ever, which was based on intelligent, attention, and improvisation, as well as Anthony E. Pratt's classic board game. Mrs. Elizabeth Peacock is a wealthy widow living in Arlington Grange with her step-daughter, the seductive Miss Vivienne Scarlet, and her faithful maid, Mrs. Blanche White. Every weekend, she invites her best friends over. They are Professor Peter Plum, Reverend Johnathan Green, and Colonel Michael Mustard.

It smacks of desperation when a tv company does a quiz / contest based around a board game . CLUEDO uses the format of the well known detective game with a host of well known British television faces enacting a scenario with a couple of contestants trying to guess who commited the murder in which part of the house . There is a bit of a flaw in this however , a series is composed of six episodes with there being six suspects so if you`ve been watching the previous five episodes it will be somewhat obvious as to who the murderer will be in the final episode .
For a far better " Let`s work who the murderer is " quiz show try WHODUNNIT presented by the late and great Jon Pertwee
