The Critics speak!

“You’ll be swept away with Jessica Fletcher feels … it has the BEST HOST.” - Time Out London

"A cinematic, theatrical and hilarious experience ... Before the night I had never seen an episode of Murder, She Wrote before, unlike some dedicated fans who had even dressed up. However, this really was an evening everyone could enjoy.” - Nottingham Post

"As soon as I saw it was on at the [Edinburgh] Fringe I elbowed my way through the other BW reviewers, pushed a couple of them over … just so I could get to the front of the queue and see this show again. And it did not disappoint ... I'd go again in a heartbeat.” 5 stars ***** - Broadway World

"The self-confessed super-fan and award-winning playwright will lead you into a silly whirlwind of nostalgic giggle, using his wealth of camp trivia and sound logic to solve these killings.” 5 stars ***** - One4Review

"Benzie knows how to put on a great show ... I would happily see it again, with all the fervour of the ‘Jessica Fletcher eating popcorn’ meme." 5 stars ***** - Everything Theatre

“Whodunnit? Tim dunnit – and he did it so well I can’t wait for the next one!" 5 stars ***** - Fairy-Powered Productions

"For a funny, campy evening, there is little that could beat Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote’s unique qualities and Benzie’s wit and charm. Personally this reviewer can’t wait to revisit 
Cabot Cove. Never mind 'whodunnit', more like 'yougottadoit!" 4 stars **** - The Reviews Hub

“A lighthearted two hours of entertainment that both die-hard devotees and Cabot Cove novices will enjoy ... A solve-along, sing-along hit." 4 stars **** - Broadway Baby

“Benzie's passion and knowledge shines through." 4 stars **** - West End Best Friend

"Tim Benzie is the perfect host ... Benzie’s insights help keep the audience engaged with the show and not just passively watching the episode unfold.” 4 stars **** - The Nerd Party
