  • I’m a huge Jonathan Kellerman fan, so Alex Delaware is my favourite detective ! Closely followed by Hercule Poirot !

  • I love anything where you need to work out the clues .
    Sherlock Holmes is up there for men.

  • Murdock just really cool and entertaining.

  • Nancy Drew. As a little girl I loved reading the Nancy Drew mysteries. I so badly wanted to be just like her I even had my own notebook ha!

  • Sherlock Holmes – I recently read the whole series on my Kindle and it’s incredible how cleverly Conan Doyle wrote the books despite them being over a century old!

  • Sherlock Holmes, he never disappoints, and always solves the crime.

  • Vera. Find her easy to relate to, she has her own demons but loves her work and her determination always brings a positive result. Hope there is a new series coming soon!!

  • Detective Barnaby from Midsommer murders as he might loose three people to catch one but he still eventually captures them.Living in a small community with so many murders makes you wonder how safe a place it is.

  • Agent Gibbs from ncis would have to be my all time favourite detective on tv

  • Sherlock Holmes
    He is very smart and I think he is a genius, I always admire his character.

  • Hercule Poirot from the Agatha Christie books! Although I did watch the tv show growing up, it actually brings back nice memories watching it with my mum and dad back in England of an evening.

  • Basil the Great Mouse Detective!
    He thwarts Ratigan’s plans to take over the Royalty, cheating death by a whisker.
    Basil you’re my hero. A mouse in a million.

  • COLUMBO! I love love Peter Falk puffing away on his cigar in his rumpled trench coat as the intrepid private eye. He’s scruffy, patient, deadpan, gentle (in an era when cops seem to use brute force all too often), brilliant, a master manipulator who allows the perpetrator to trip over his own feet, unique! There’s the sly statement when I know he’ got it.. “Oh, oh, one more thing, before I forget…”

  • Get Smart. His not a good one but makes me laugh
