The Misinvestigations Of Romesh Ranganathan is coming to BBC2 and BBC iPlayer, and will see The Ranganation star examining some high-profile deaths. 

The new show comes after the success of his Misadventures series, which saw him travelling the world, including visiting very unlikely places on earth for a holiday.

Speaking about the series, Romesh said: “We wanted a spin-off for Misadventures, and after we discussed Misinterpretations, Miscalculations, and Misunderstandings we finally settled on Misinvestigations. It’s been really interesting to look into these high-profile deaths and I am very excited for people to see the show unless of course people don’t like it in which case I will release a statement explaining how I never really believed in the project.”
