Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 1
AIRED:
Mel, Richard, Mervin, Sarita, Meryl, Sam, Christine, Ruairi, Nick and Andrew - will play the Murder Game to the bitter end, with a shared objective - catching the killer. But they have a single ambition too - bagging the £25,000 cash prize which can only be given to the last survivor! Guided by the worldly-wise Detective Chief Inspector Bob Taylor, aka The Chief, the game begins. Catherine Prior has been murdered and it is up to the special investigators to solve the crime. Richard becomes Lead Investigator, therefore deciding who is in what team. Later while the investigator's enjoy dinner, a wreath attached with 9 mugshot photos is smashed through the downstairs window. The message says ‘I am one of the nine' and it is clearly from the killer - they are challenging the investigators to discover which of the nine people in the photos is the blood spiller. The suspects are: Dean - Jay's best friend; Frank - Catherine's father; Goldie - Catherine's sister; Jay - Goldie's fiancee; Jennifer - Jay's mother; Trevor - a builder; Vanessa - Catherine's friend and babysitter to Catherine's daughter, Anya; Tina - the vicar's wife; and George - Catherine's old piano teacher. Dean's house: they see the wedding car speeding out from Dean's garage and give chase. The driver throws something out of the window over the disused railway bridge. The investigators loose the car, so they stop to find what was thrown over the bridge - it's the missing video camera. They are smart enough not to play the tape and bag it as evidence. At the final briefing the tape that Team 3 found is played by Bob for all the investigators to view. It's horrible - we can see Catherine being murdered and then hear the sinister voice of the killer over pictures of the investigators eating their meal - they're been watched! The killer tells them to meet them at the Power Museum and the Old Gates and evilly threatens that one of them will not be coming back from the meeting! The group privately go up the wooden stairs for a secret meeting with Detective Inspector Bob where they cast their vote on who they think should face the killer and give their reasons why. The group vote for Sarita. Richard as team leader casts his vote on Christine, telling the group he considered Christine to shown the least initiative. Christine and Sarita go to face the killer - Christine does not come back!moreless
