There were many questions raised at Murder Island on Tuesday night. But no one asked the obvious one.

Namely, if this new murder mystery from Ian Rankin was such a cracking tale why didn't he just release it as a book instead of letting Channel 4 turn it into a dull reality show?

I'm not saying I lost interest really quickly, but by the time that Dogs Trust advert came on in the break asking dog owners to complete the National Dog Survey online I almost logged on straight away. And I don't even own a dog.

I know we're only one episode in, but I fear we've already reached the stage where even the Goggleboxers pretending to like it would not be enough to turn things around.

Also, I don't think much of the observational skills of the real detectives who are helping the amateur sleuths out - especially after one of them said this: "The only person who doesn't write anything down is Rain Man."

Guv, he famously carried a notebook around in his bag and wrote lots of stuff down.

Have you even seen the movie?
