Foul Play



Simon Brett


Maria McErlane and Lee Simpson (actors)


BBC Radio 4, 7 November 1996 to 16 October 1998 (24 episodes in 4 series)


Murder mystery game in which two guests (mainly mystery writers themselves) were asked to solve mysteries penned by chairman Simon Brett and acted out by the resident cast of two. The main fun came when the guests "cross-examined" the characters, with the actors part-improvising their responses.

Although a game of whodunnit revolving around a small number of possible suspects, sometimes other solutions were possible - one episode turned out to be a self-planned suicide.
