Killer ques­tions

Inside Soap - - INSIDE TV -

If you’re the sort of viewer who watches Mid­somer Mur­ders think­ing, ‘That Barn­aby’s an idiot, I fig­ured out who the killer was two ad breaks ago’, then this is the show for you.

Hosted by Su­san Cal­man (an ac­com­plished mul­ti­tasker, as she was re­hears­ing for Strictly while film­ing this), each episode of Arm­chair De­tec­tives tasks three crime fic­tion en­thu­si­asts with solv­ing a mur­der in the sleepy vil­lage of Mort­cliff.

They get a com­fort­able chair in the stu­dio to watch the drama un­fold­ing on-screen in a se­ries of clips, as Mort­cliff’s own crack de­tec­tive team of DI Knight, DC Slater and Scene of Crime Of­fi­cer Sim­mons in­ves­ti­gates – but can the am­a­teur sleuths beat the pro­fes­sion­als to the un­mask­ing of the killer?
