Detective TV series seeking contestants

Are you a wannabe Morse, a latter-day Sherlock or even an armchair DI Neville Parker? If so, a new television series is looking for you to take part in a murder mystery detective challenge.

Production company STV Studios, based in Glasgow, is making a new television series for Channel 4 called Murder Island, and wants pairs of ordinary British people to turn into detectives to try and solve the murder mystery case.

The civilian ‘detectives’ will have police resources at their disposal – pathologists, forensic scientists, psychologists etc. They will be competing to see if they can be the first to identify the suspect and bring them to justice.
