BBC1’s newest star of daytime Susan Calman presides as three armchair detectives attempt to solve a murder in a fictional Scottish village by watching an investigation play out in front of them.
You can definitely see the appeal behind commissioning such a show – detective dramas are massively popular (Father Brown is about twice as popular as any quiz in the slot, for example) and people like quizzes so why not combine the two? The potential downside of this, of course, is that you annoy fans of one by mixing it with the other.
Despite the people coming up with the cases being prominent Bar members, I actually don’t know all that much about the format and how it works, so fingers crossed it’s good. If you watch it, let us know what you think in the comments.
