Solve along-a Murder She Wrote – Dead Heat

The cult hit event Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote continues its residency at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern with a new episode, the horsey “Dead Heat”.

Jessica’s niece (a jockey-in-training) is accused of murder and JB has to find the murderer in the world of horse racing.

Following riotous presentations of “A Very Good Year for Murder”, “Old Habit Die Hard”, “Jessica Behind Bars”, “Sing a Song of Murder”, “Broadway Malady”, “If It’s Thursday, It Must Be Beverly” and many more, Tim Benzie returns with the classic episode of Murder, She Wrote, to be announced soon.

Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote is a unique and hilarious night featuring games, prizes and audience participation, with special permission from NBC Universal Television. See the show Time Out rated one of 2021 and 2019’s 50 Great Nights Out in London that has played to sell-out audiences across the UK and Australia. Can you solve the crime before JB Fletcher?

Hosted by super-fan Tim Benzie, Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote features:

* A race to solve to the crime, via the Fameometer and the Suspiciometer!
* A Cabot Cove quiz and raffle!
* A singalong to the theme tune with new lyrics!
* Clips and biogs of the campy guest stars!

Tim Benzie is obsessed with Murder, She Wrote, having watched the original series when it was first broadcast, and now relishing the repeats on television everywhere. An award-winning playwright and co-writer of the Royal Vauxhall Tavern’s 2017-2023 pantos (‘Goosed’, ‘Rubbed’, ‘Slipped’, ‘Pricked’, ‘Cracked’ and ‘Tossed’).

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

“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

“I’d challenge anyone to sit through this show and not get utterly invested in figuring out whodunit, whilst smiling at the comfort that this 80’s drama brings.”

“It didn’t take long for Benzie to have the audience in stitches and he had the whole crowd in the palm of his hand the entire evening.”
Bristol 24/7

”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!”
