Good Afternoon fun
14 December 2017 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I don't watch hardly any daytime TV, apart from Father Brown, but this intrigued me, as a big fan of Murder mysteries and suspense stories, I found the premise quite interesting. When you think back to Whodunit from the Seventies and Cluedo from the Nineties the format works. It's a good afternoon distraction, the best thing I've seen Susan Calman doing, to be fair to her she adds the entertainment. The mysteries themselves are naturally nonsense and everything is very woolly and mainstream, but that's the whole point.

So it's not Whodunit or Cluedo, but it's been an enjoyable few weeks watching it. BRING CLUEDO BACK :-)

Watchable fun 7/10
