As I wrote in my previous post, I am watching the ABC reality series Whodunnit? as a writing exercise. Here’s some text for the premise of the show before I get into specifics (just in case you don’t want to be spoiled). If you’d like to listen to Liam and Regan’s podcast about episode 1, you can find it here. If you’re watching along, you can find Episode 2 here.
You’ve all been personally selected to play my diabolical game of life and death. Your job: stay alive long enough to discover who I am. You can only do that by being the best at solving the crimes I put before you. Fail, and you may be the next to die.. here are the rules. Following each murder, I will offer you the opportunity to investigate one and only one of the following areas: the crime scene, the victim’s last known whereabouts, or… the morgue, where you can examine the corpse in a more private setting. Take a moment to decide which of the three areas you wish to investigate. Give careful consideration to your choice. Take a look around. The killer, I’m afraid, is among us.
