The battle of the detectives

Cluedo Night

In the blue corner; Poirot. In the red corner; Frost. Let’s get ready to ruuuummmmmmbbbbllllleeeeee.


Also known as the Great Cluedo Night – an evening consisting of beer, the classic board game, more beer, the film based on the game, and of course a selection of my mighty fine friends.

And inevitably, during the course of the evening, the longstanding and deeply emotive argument will once again begin; just who is the best detective of all time?

My money’s on Columbo, with the lovely Jessica Fletcher coming a close second. You just can’t beat Columbo’s tricksy ‘one last question’ and casual shuffling around. There is also nothing better than a lazy day accompanied by a few classic episodes and a blanket. But then someone else is going to start talking about Morse or start waving Sherlocks around (there’s a few out there now, hard to keep track).

So who’s gonna win? Which sleuthster’s gonna come out on top?

There’s only one way to find out…

I’ll go for Jane Marple, Lord Peter Wimsey (sucker for a title), or Sergeant Hemingway (georgette Heyer’s detective novels). Can I have wine instead of beer?
