Here at the Murder Mystery Company we’ve been trying to ascertain just who is the finest TV Detective of them all… and the first round is nearly over. So far we’ve seen Jimmy McNulty face off against Miss Marple, Poirot take on Jack Bauer and David Hasselhoff lose a scrap with himself – to name but a few.
This is really the battle of the sidekicks, as two of television’s favourite supporting sleuths meet each other in a freak scheduling shock.
FBI Agent and Doctor of medicine Dana Scully looks at the cases of her leading man through the eyes of a scientist, trying to keep Mulder’s elaborate theories in check as he rages against aliens, government conspiracies and the paranormal.
Ex Soldier and Doctor of medicine John Watson, on the other hand, looks at the cases of his leading man with calm bafflement, trying to keep Holmes’ elaborate theories in check as he solves murders.
On paper there’s barely a thing to separate them, unless you consider things like gender, nationality, job, belief system or torch size. This one is going to be close!
Voting closes in one month.
Meanwhile, feel free to take a look at the main Murder Mystery Company website, for an idea of what we’re up to when we’re not up to this.
