Well it was a cracking first round fight and started the TV Detective World Series off with a bang.
The voting is now closed, and it gives us great pleasure to announce the winner is…
Of course it was! With just more than three quarters of the vote, Fletcher goes through to the second round in comfort.
Lewis shouldn’t be disheartened by this, and a quarter of the vote against such a contender as Fletcher is a very strong showing indeed.
On the day though, judges felt he was a little too functional, too obvious. A policeman doing his job is never going to compare with being a kindly old lady who writes mystery novels and solves murders in her spare time.
Some of the judges commented that before the next World Series Lewis would do well to flesh out his character, maybe take up hang gliding or move to Jersey and develop a drink problem. Or get an exotic pet. Or a pipe.
Or become a magician.
Fletcher on the other hand can now take a breather and study the results for the other first round matches as they come in. She may even have time to visit a friend and find one of their relatives mysteriously dies, the police are out of their depth and it really is down to her…
A big thank you to everyone who voted, and don’t forget that our own love of Jessica Fletcher inspired us to create a brand new corporate event!
