It's a Mystery!

Author(s): Tim Benzie Running time: 1h 10min approx Age recommendation: 16+ years

The audience are summoned to the drawing room as Tim takes on the role of detective, examining the clues that drew him to the genre as a child, a journey from Scooby Doo and Encyclopedia Brown to German mystery-puzzle books via reading the entire works of Agatha Christie as a teenager.

Along the way, he draws connections between obsessions with detective films, TV series Murder, She Wrote, his role as Detective Tim for Disney TV and his Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote show.

There is a tenacious theory that in times of societal strife, murder mysteries surge in popularity, and Tim unpacks the notion via stories of his own troubled times to determine not just why there is a detective in all of us, but ultimately what is the mystery that we’re all trying to solve.
