Fans of televised mysteries were left feeling deflated after police announced the arrest of Gary Glitter on sex charges.
‘It was all a bit obvious really – nowhere near as good as the pilot episode’ said Andrew Challis, a keen reader of Agatha Christie novels. ‘I had assumed the earlier police hints as to ‘prominent 70s entertainer’ and ‘one-time Asian resident’ were red herrings to deflect attention from the real offender, whom I suspected to be either David Cameron or Mother Teresa.’
‘And even when the lady came forward saying she had seen Glitter in Savile’s dressing room, I thought that was a clever reference to the sparkly stuff on Xmas decorations, rather than the now thrice disgraced singer.’
