Armchair Detectives

Confirmed for BBC One on 20-24 November at 2.15pm to 3pm

Ep 1-5

Monday 20 November to Friday 24 November



There’s been a murder - and we need viewers to solve it. Susan Calman hosts as three amateur sleuths head to the fictional town of Mortcliff to solve a deadly crime, from the comfort of the Armchairs in the studio.

They’ll watch the drama play out as Mortcliff’s crack team of detectives DI Knight, DC Slater and scenes-of-crime Officer Simmons make inquiries with the local residents. But in a show where everyone has a motive it might prove harder to catch the culprit than you think.

Across each episode the Armchair Detectives will be introduced to suspects and uncover vital clues. They’ll share their thoughts and theories as the story unfolds, before making their final accusation in a bid to win the golden magnifying glass trophy.

This week, the crack teams of amateur detectives solve the mysteries of the murders of a local artist; a successful inventor found in his workshop; a member of a jury; a star lawn bowls player and a local ranger. 

It’s time to answer the only question that matters - whodunnit?
