“You’ll be swept away with Jessica Fletcher feels … it has the BEST HOST.” – Time Out London
“I’d challenge anyone to sit through this show and not get utterly invested in figuring out whodunit, whilst smiling at the comfort that this 80’s drama brings.” 4 stars **** – West End Wilma
“It didn’t take long for Benzie to have the audience in stitches and he had the whole crowd in the palm of his hand the entire evening.” – Bristol 24/7
“For a funny, campy evening, there is little that could beat Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote’s unique qualities and Benzie’s wit and charm. Personally this reviewer can’t wait to revisit Cabot Cove. Never mind ‘whodunnit’, more like ‘yougottadoit!” 4 stars **** – The Reviews Hub
