Mark Gorton, producer of Cluedo (ITV Mon), on the assembling of the show's acclaimed cast: 'We started off with the idea that we'd like to make the drama more comic strip, to get away from the Agatha Christie drawing-room murder scenario. We'd asked the writers to have fun with the conventions and that appealed to people like Joanna Lumley (Mrs Peacock). I was absolutely delighted with James Bain's (casting director) suggestions; in terms of casting it's some very good ideas and a bit of serendipity - we drew up the wish-list and more-or- less hit every time. Jerry Hall (Miss Scarlet) jumped at the opportunity and Leslie Grantham (Col Mustard) and Nicholas Parsons (Rev Green) both said yes instantly.
