Murder in Successville is a brilliantly funny murder mystery series that i enjoyed immensely. Tom Davis plays his part superbly with an air of incompetence and vulnerability and being a very likable character to boot. The celebrities are the spark for the format to work and they deliver genuinely funny performances. The rest of the cast play their parts competently and with huge amounts of vigour and i really liked the pantomime type of delivery for the show. When unexpected moments happen it is hilarious to see the ad-lib between the celebs and Tom as it is scripted to the degree of the story being played out only, leaving plenty of room for comedy. Series 1 was good but series 2 got even better. I really hope this show runs for a long time as each and every episode is entirely different from the last, using clever use of props and locations. It really has the feel of a cityscape and is filmed and edited fantastically. Top marks........
