Enjoyable story but expected more music !

Whilst the story is credible and has the usual murder mystery twists etc I have to say i was a little disappointed at the lack of music considering this was supposed to be a musical mystery. It took an hour and a half before the first song was played and only three songs featured throughout the drama. The narrator was cut in a forties style which worked well but she was a little monotonous and I found myself drifting away from the story at times. Still worth my 99p special offer credit though !
