The last couple of weeks we’ve had a poll going on which English crime show you readers like the best. And the results are in.
Not very surprisingly, Midsomer Murders won with 30% of the votes. 21% of the readers found that Agatha Christie’s Poirot was the best, which therefore gave Poirot a second place in the poll. In third came two very good shows as well, both the Inspector Lynley Mysteries and Inspector Morse got 15% of the votes.
Next up is Harry Potter – who you can read more about in our blog series “the Harry Potter Sensation”. And the question this month is, which Harry Potter tourist attraction you like best?
