Inventive and clever
13 December 2017 | by richardmarshall937See all my reviews

Armchair Detectives is a slow burner. Each episode a new crime case is investigated by the team of DI Knight, DC Slater and SOCO Simmons. Set in the fictional town in Mortcliff (the eagle eyed will recognise various spots around the East Lothian coast) the format is playful and pulls the audience in. It took me a few episodes to understand the game-play element of the show, but it's ever so slightly addictive. I love crime drama and this feels like a cult hit in the making.
