The Mervyn Stone Mysteries are a series of books from Big Finish - you know the Doctor Who Audio people. Mervyn was a script editor on the TV show Vixens from the Void who has a knack for solving crime.
"Mervyn was script editor of the BBC television series Vixens from the
Void, a ‘Dynasty in Space’ soap opera which gripped the nation in the
1980s; an intergalactic, glitter-themed, shoulder-padded bitchfest
featuring wobbly spaceships, wobblier women and the wobbliest
Mervyn is never allowed to forget his guilty past. The fans won’t let
him. This is why, twenty years later,
Mervyn reluctantly finds himself
at ‘ConVix 15’, a Science Fiction convention.
It’s a funny thing; it seems everywhere Mervyn’s dormant career takes him, there are murders."
This is a part of the synopsis taken from the Big Finish website, I like the description on the front cover of the books better!
"Fiendish and funny Columbo meets Blake’s Seven – with gags – and sex,” - David Tennant
