The composer writes: 'One of my all time favourite films is Clue (1985) based on the board game of the same name (Cluedo, if you’re from the UK). Clue follows the night of six guests who are invited to a mansion for dinner. The host, Mr. Boddy is murdered, and the guests must work together to find the killer before any more lives are lost. I implore you to give it a watch if you haven’t already, even if it’s just for Tim Curry’s magical performance as The Butler. Running at 82 minutes, the film is over before you know it. I wanted to create a similar story here with Whodunnit?, which like it’s inspiration, Clue, moves at an incredible pace as it follows a dinner party, to which our guests have been invited. This work is rather dark throughout and full of intentional clichés, for which, I make no apology!'
