We were recently at one of our favourite venues, Down Hall in Hertfordshire, running our Who Killed His Lordship event.
Unsuspecting guests are enjoying their pre-dinner drinks when suddenly there is a commotion outside – Lord John himself staggers into the room, coughing and spluttering with glorious, over the top passion before dropping dead there and then!
Sherlock Holmes was soon on the scene (having conveniently been dining in another room!) and sets out to solve the murder – with the guests’ help!
Life at The Murder Mystery Company isn’t all murder, you know. When we’re not running award-winning corporate events up and down the country, we like to take a moment to consider the important things.
It’s time for another round of The TV Detective World Series.
This round practically speaks for itself, as two great detectives, each very much a product of their time and place, go up against each other in the penultimate fight in this massive first round.
One set the pace for a thousand to follow, the other balanced those ideas on a cheap wooden desk and then flipped them over in a fit of uncontrolled rage.
But when all is said and done, which is best?
As ever, you decide. Voting closes in a month, and if you can’t wait that long, take a look at what we get up to when we’re not doing this.
We come to it at last. The bookie’s favourite coming into the World Series is up against not one, not two, not four but three opponents in his opening round!
At The Murder Mystery Company we continue to split our time fairly between running award-winning corporate events for clients and answering the important questions about Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Questions that don’t need asking but certainly seem to need answering. Questions so significant that you couldn’t find them in any textbook. Questions so important that once you learn the answer your life will probably be very similar to how it was before.
Questions like ‘Which is the Greatest TV Detective of all time?’
To answer that question we have gathered 32 of the world’s greatest crime fighters and are pitting them against each other, one after another in a battle of wits the like of which the world has never seen.
Who wins? You decide. But one thing is for sure – once you’ve decided, there’s no going back. Well, until the next TV Detective World Series, anyway.
After a short break spent trying to come up with ideas for the other three Cluedo weapons, or the ‘less funny trinity’ as we came to refer to them, we are back.
For years people have played Cluedo when there is literally nothing else to do, and we have been looking at just how effective the six standard weapons would be in a real life situation. We have already examined the Rope (not very good), the Candlestick (for the gentleman murderer) and the Revolver (loud).
Now it is time for that murder weapon of murder weapons…

Here at The Murder Mystery Company we continue to attempt to answer the great question of which TV Detective is the best. Putting one star up against another in a series of matches and asking you to vote for who you believe should go through.
The first round of the TV Detective World Series continues apace, and one of the hottest bouts yet has been concluded.
We can now reveal that the winner is…
