Armchair Detectives – BBC One

From the comfort of armchairs in the studio, three amateur sleuths, they watch the drama play out as Mortcliff’s crack team of detectives make enquiries with the local residents. But in a show where everyone has a motive, it might prove harder to catch the culprit than you think. The Armchair Detectives are introduced to suspects, uncover vital clues and share their thoughts and theories as the story unfolds, before making their final accusation in a bid to win the golden magnifying glass trophy.

Featuring several of our BAA clients, watch the series every week day at quarter past 2 to find out WhoDunnit?

The Monarch of the Glen

While the Roydes are very much creatures of the 20th century, their hosts still cling to the old ways: Donald MacDonald of Ben Nevis, the 23rd clan chieftain and Laird of Glenbogle Castle, is fiercely protective of his way of life, the land that he loves and the MacDonald spirit. Being more than a little cash-strapped, however, Ben Nevis (as he is also known) is not above trying to forge a match between heiress Myrtle and one of his brawny sons.

But when a group of English hikers turn up and trample all over his grouse moor, and a trespassing nationalist poet seems set to capture Myrtle’s affections, Ben Nevis’ plans come under attack on two fronts – and he’s never one to underreact when things don’t go his way . . .

The cast includes three of our BAA clients, Neshla Caplan, Stephanie McGregor and Deirdre Davis. The run begins 26th October.
