Susan Calman heads up a Whodunnit on BBC One

Susan Calman has a brand new BBC One daytime TV show, Armchair Detectives, due for broadcast later this year. The series combines a murder mystery drama with a gameshow and will transport three players to the fictional town of Mortcliff – where, would you believe it, a dastardly crime has been committed. The task in hand? To find out whodunnit!
This immersive investigation is chockfull of titillating reveals with more suspects and clues coming to light as the drama unfolds – putting the players critical thinking to the test to identify the killer.

Susan says: “I’m so excited to be presenting Armchair Detectives for BBC One Daytime. I love a TV crime drama and now I get to help the British public and the contestants in the studio solve one! I can’t wait to get started and get solving!”

Jo Street, Commissioning Editor, Entertainment and Daytime, said: “Susan’s mischievous sense of humour and background as a lawyer gives her means, motive and opportunity to be the perfect host for this dramatic new whodunnit show.”

The series was commissioned by Dan McGolpin, BBC Controller of Programming & Daytime and Jo Street, Commissioning Editor, Entertainment and Daytime. It was developed by Tiger Aspect Productions and will be series produced by Carly Brooks and exec produced by Richard Ackerman.

Susan also fronts the BBC One daytime quiz, The Boss, which returned to screens on Monday. You can also catch Susan dancing her socks off on the latest series of Strictly, it’s no mystery to us why this talented comedian is everywhere at the moment!
