Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote
March 2020 Newsletter

Boy, so much has changed since the last newsletter, where we announced an Irish tour that is now postponed. We're gutted to have to cancel so many shows, but read on for updates on the shows, a Cabot Cove Quiz and our regular book review.

UPCOMING SHOWS
Thank you so much to all the fangelas that have been in touch sending their best wishes during this difficult period. Just remember JB Fletcher was still able to solve crimes even when she was bed-bound with a bad back in a storm (in the episode "Crossed Up"). So if she can do it, we can surely survive! Keep an eye here for all updates, and note that all tickets will be refunded once individual shows are cancelled. Please email directly at solvealonga@gmail.com if you have any difficulties. 
CABOT COVE QUIZ AT HOME
Try your luck at our very first Cabot Cove Quiz! Remember hands on your head for True, hands on your hips for false. How long will you survive? 
VIRTUAL SOLVE ALONG
We've had a number of requests for a virtual Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote and we're still pondering how this might work. We really want to preserve the theatricality of the shows - they are a live experience intended to bring people together in a fun way (which is currently not possible). So if there's a way of doing a lockdown show that keeps the same spirit, then we might try it. Watch this space. 

BUY A DRINK FOR THE RVT
The beloved Royal Vauxhall Tavern is the home of Solve-Along and we can't wait to return. (There's a show in the calendar for Wednesday 6 May - fingers crossed it won't be cancelled). In the meantime if you want to support this independent venue, our friends at the club night BeefMince have set up a fundraiser. (They host a virtual club night every Saturday night too). You can make a donation here

GETTING YOUR FIX ON THE TELE
Thanks heavens that Murder, She Wrote is on television A LOT during these tough times. It's on Sony Entertainment Television Monday to Friday at 4 and 5pm, and then all day Sunday. It's also on 5USA all day Saturday (and weirdly at 9:25am Monday to Friday). If one really catches your eye email me at solvealonga@gmail.com! Remember I'm looking for an episode with one or more of the following: a fun guest star, 'peak JB sass' and an improbable location. 
POSITIVELY ANGELA
Dame Angela's home exercise video and handbook have become the stuff of camp - but my dears these moves have never been more timely! In all seriousness, this is a sincere celebration of staying healthy and feeling good about yourself as you get older, and has some fab insights into what it was like filming the first season of Murder, She Wrote. If you thought you couldn't possibly love Angela more, then try and find a copy of this rarity and soak up her loveliness. 
SHOW SOME LOVE FOR PRINCE CHARLES (CINEMA)
The big screen home of Solve Along is the magnificent Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Square and like many independent venues, there are tough days ahead. Why not show some love and buy someone a £10 annual subscription as a gift, if you can?

WHAT WOULD JB FLETCHER DO? 
Finally, let's keep this principle in mind. When you're feeling blue, ask what JB would do. She'd keep her chin up and carry on with dignified determination and have a few white wines along the way. I know I will be.
