Original, funny, clever, simple, well produced.
2 June 2015 | by The_Critical_EyeSee all my reviews

This show is all about the concept - putting an unsuspecting TV celeb in the position of solving a murder mystery. Throw in exaggerated character impersonations, a bit of humour, a touch of awkwardness, a bit of improv (this is where it really comes to life), and great end credit songs, and you've got a gem.

Rarely do I feel the need to watch something twice when it comes out, but this programme has that affect as it is full of nuances and little bits of information that are good for a second viewing.

DI Sleet, the chief (Gordon Ramsay) and Ciarad Lloyd deserve special mention, though the celebs each play their part.

It's nice to see something different from the usual panel show/sitcom based comedy. Hopefully there's more to come.
