TV Detective Database

As much as I love Murder, She Wrote, I’m well aware there are lots of other great detective shows out there and I certainly don’t restrict myself to just watching MSW.

Part of my goal in building this website is to make it a resource for fans of the genre to discover (or re-discover) old and new mystery shows.

To that end, I’ve created some pages that aim to list the chronology of detective TV. It’s still a work in progress but I hope to keep expanding this website regularly and I welcome your feedback.
