During the show sleuths will receive documents and see interviews with the murder suspects, including the chance to question them via a live video link to try and get them to answer questions, all from the safety of home. 

Teams will compete against each other to solve the Magic Lantern Mystery, which will last around two hours.  

A spokesman for the Sudbury Dramatic Society said: "Teams pay a single fee, whatever their size and you can even play with your family or friends in other places, just so long as you all have internet and a PC, an email address and the combined brainpower needed to work out the clues.

"The teams will decide who-they-think-dunnit, submit their own reports and then watch the filmed summing up and conclusions from the indefatigable Inspector Sheerluck.
