Watching the detectives

I'm a massive fan of this genre and I've tried to cover this type of quiz from the sixties to the present day. I would certainly welcome any critisism and of course praise from anybody. In my opinion a score of 80% plus is impressive.

I hope that I've compiled a quiz that isn't too difficult and not too easy. I'm very in-experienced at compiling quizzes and I'm hoping to improve over time and we'll see how I rate. All the best.
