Podcast 286: This is our Everest, Part Thirty-Two – Cluedo (1991)

by | Feb 18, 2021

This week on This Is Our Everest, Edward and Ian watched the early 1990s celebrity panel whodunnit show Cluedo. Still reeling from the news that one of their most fervent regular listeners may have been done in with a snooker ball in a sock, your heroes discuss means, motive and opportunity all framed by one of the most gleefully cast and pantomimed shows from UK television history.

Mollie Sugden, making her fourth appearance on this ridiculous podcast, chews the scenery and not even a technical breakdown which consigned over ten percent of the show’s running time to the dustbin of history is able to prevent Ian “Sherlock Holmes” King from collaring the guilty party. A splendid time was, by all accounts, had by everyone involved. Except perhaps you, dear listener. You’ll have to be the judge of that. If you’d like to see Cluedo for yourself, you can find it on YouTube here.
