    Great. There’s loads of murder weapons for sale in a hardware. Plenty of scope for future story lines.

      Depends on how the sponsors feel about their merch being used for murders. Might not be pleased to see the yellow branding all over a crime scene.

    Good fix for the wobbly sets then.

    Pity there’s nothing that can shore up the acting.

    To what level has RTE stooped to for the last cent, to pay inflated
    salaries and fees….what next, the news sponsered by Dennis O’Brien

    Is this replacing the Spar sponsorship or are they taking advertising money from both companies?
