It helps if you have fond memories of Murder She Wrote, which we have. Silly and fun. Great host.

Would love to spend one night a week like this. The perfect way of watching telly, trivia and a lovely host! Convinced me to book his other show instantly. (Which didn‘t disappoint either!)

PS: My belly still aches from laughing.

Likeable and enthusiastic host. My partner is familiar with Murder She Wrote and enjoyed the show. I've never seen it, and the show was not entertaining for me.
So, if you like Murder She Wrote I think you will like this, but otherwise I wouldn't bother.

I thought this show was very funny, well thought out and clever. Lots of laughs and everyone seemed to enjoy it. My wife volunteered to join in for part of the show and it made her night.
A very enjoyable and entertaining show.

LOVED THIS! Easily my favourite show I have seen this year.
Tim is funny, engaging, cheesy, clever and just the right level of poking holes and fun in his beloved Murder She Wrote!
Even if you are not a Murder She Wrote fan, this would still be a fun way to spend 80 minutes. Nice venue with comfy seats too!

Come back next year with different episodes please!!

Amazing show - even if you've never seen Murder She Wrote. Camp, fun and easy to get lost in the show! Tim is the Hostess with the Mostess guiding you to solve the murder along with Jessica herself. Extra special to see the show at the Fringe. Not to be missed!

Go see this fantastic show. A warm and funny tribute to this 80s TV classic, with a charming host who clearly loves the subject matter. Great way to spend 80 minutes!

I would highly recommend anyone to head along to theSpace @ Symposium Hall for your chance to solve the murder with Tim. It was touching to see people hang back after the performance who shared their stories and memories of when they would coorie doon with mum, dad, nan & dog to watch A Murder-She-Wrote.
