BBC Film Murder Mystery Success
BBC One's Living in Spain programme brought its cameras to The Leprechaun Restaurant in Santa Pola on last Wednesday evening, August 16th to capture a murderer. But do not worry as this was not a real murder, but an evening of comedy entertainment from actors Roger Keevil and Chris Brooke.
Launched by The Jungle Drums Magazine the first 'murder night' held in July was so successful that Chris and Roger invited the TV cameras to film the evening as part of the upcoming BBC 'Living in Spain' programme.
Eager sleuths again joined in the fun with six members of the audience picked out as suspects and given parts to play. TV presenter Kristian Digby was even roped in to become the third policeman. With their brand of 'Carry-on' humour and subtle (and not so subtle) innuendo the pair had the audience laughing from the very first moment playing out their roles between meal courses with clues supplied by Inspector Copper (Roger) with 'witnesses' (Chris) mysteriously appearing to help the audience with more statements and clues.
The cameras rolled for the whole of the evening - filming as much of the participating audience as the two stars of the show - with eventually a winner selected from the participants and Inspector Rookie (Kristian Digby) escorting the guilty party from the building as part of his role for the evening.
