Whodunnit [Unrehearsed] 3

Following the sell-out success of previous runs of the murder mystery spoof, Whodunnit, the next instalment promises more chaos and hilarity.

The mystery is who will play the Inspector in each performance, as each performance has a different celebrity taking on the role without any rehearsal, and without having seen the script.

Performances feature the voice of Ian McKellen with a different celebrity stepping into the role of the Inspector in each performance, including Adrian Dunbar, Clive Anderson, Gillian Anderson, David Baddiel.
