Funny , Light & Interesting

Some people reviewing this are taking it far too seriously , its meant to be light hearted and I appreciate this fact , learning the basic facts of the history of a crime whilst having a laugh. Each episode is not too long and doesn't constantly repeat itself as some do. Well done Laura & Iain - Keep em coming 😊
