Pulls you right in and makes you want to stay

I’m not really a fan of mysteries - no experience with Lansbury, Colombo, Peroit, not even Conan Doyle. Not sure what brought me to this lovely and endearingly Welsh cast, but it is truly cozy to spend time with them. After you finish the main series, be sure to listen to the Halloween special - a delightful homage to some more ‘animated’ mystery solvers.

Fun!

Fun little mystery

Murder mystery made charming

Funny, quirky, and brilliantly performed. Is it odd to say it almost makes me wish for my own cozy little apocalypse? The audio production is expertly done and the theme music is beyond catchy. Can't wait for more!
