If Monty Python and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle partnered to write a murder mystery they might have ended up with something like The Blues. Full of twists and turns and with characters as familiar and believable as they are extraordinary and odd it is a journey of imagination and insight with laughter riding shotgun. ‘You don’t get to the bottom of murder and mayhem like you unwind a collection of old string, each length of which is some kind of truth, or clue or motive that is neatly attached to the next length.’ At least not when it’s a Hopeless Case you don’t and that’s the only kind of case these Blues solve. Sooner or later, murder and mayhem confront Blue Justice and then the gloves are off. Dead is forever and so is Blue Justice. Some things you can count on.
