Well, 2016 has certainly been a pretty fabulous year - if you exclude Brexit, and Boris, and Farage, and the untimely deaths of David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Prince, Andrew Sachs, Leonard Cohen, Gene Wilder, Caroline Aherne, Victoria Wood, Mohammed Ali, my "phone friend" Carla Lane, Ronnie Corbett, Paul Daniels, George Michael, Carrie Fisher and Sir Terry Wogan (to name but a few) and that we've been cast into a pit of firey dispair having elected a maniacal, despotic, self-serving, eco-sceptic, racist, sexist egotist as "the world's most powerful man" - okay as years go, it's been a bit shit - but as walking tours go, Murder Mile has been a success. Yay!
So a BIG THANK YOU goes out to everyone who came on a Murder MIle Walk, and supported a crazy idea, spawned by an idiot who had no idea what he was doing, but knew that he had to do it, and loved it, and wanted to share his passion for history, drama, crime and even "receipe tips for festive drinks" (wink) with everyone. So, once again, THANK YOU.
And so, to cheer you up over Christmas, here's a round-up of the "most interesting" murder-related blogs (the links marked in red) to have come out of Murder Mile this year. Enjoy.
If you enjoyed Murder Mile Walks (Soho), you'll be delighted to know that I'm curretnly writing and researching the second installment - Murder Mile Walks (Covent Garden), featuring some of the deadliest serial killers and murderers to have stalked London's most famous market. Stay tuned.
Thank you and enjoy the holiday
