It's time again for all you armchair detectives to don your deerstalkers and have your magnifying glasses at the ready for another chance to pit your wits against Thames Television's Whodunnit? panel of supersleuths. The show, which begins at 6.45 on Monday, is once again hosted by 'Dr. Whodunnit?' himself, Jon Pertwee, and the two regular 'tecs are Patrick Mower (of Special Branch fame) and — no, honestly! — Liza Goddard.

As you probably know, a panel of stars sits in the studio watching a murder mystery and they can then ask for bits of the murder to be played back. After this they can cross-examine the suspects. There's also a panel of amateur 'Sherlocks' who are plucked from the studio audience. But the biggest difficulty lies in sorting out the red herring! The clues fall thick and fast, but which are the real ones and which have been put there to send everyone off on a wild goose chase?

Helping to solve the baffling crimes in this new series will be, amongst others, lovely New Avengers girl Joanna Lumley (though — alas! — according to producer Robert Reed, she won't be given the chance to practise her famous high-kicking antics when sorting out the baddies!), Bill Maynard, Alfred Marks, June Whitfield and Diana Coupland.

Also making an appearance in one of the shows will be Kate O'Mara. She's currently playing a Shakespearian role but will be making a flying visit to play the part of a lady pilot in a 'Whodunnit?' murder mystery. Whether she's a victim, suspect or murderer though, Thames TV weren't letting on!
