Tom Davis calls time on Murder in Successville

"You don't want to be doing (series) four and five and it starts to creak and you start not loving it."


Each hilarious improvised episode of Murder In Successville saw Tom Davis play DI Sleet, a detective whose job it was to solve a number of crimes in the fictional town of Successville. A town filled with celebrities, played by some of the finest impressionists and comedy actors this country has to offer including Luke Kempner, Colin Hoult and Cariad Lloyd.


In each episode, Sleet would be joined by a different celebrity, known as a rookie recruit, who through improvised interrogation would help Sleet decide who was guilty. How? By pointing a gun and pulling the trigger, obviously.
