How do Mike’s eccentricities fit into Brokenwood?

He talks to the dead, and when he talks to the dead, he’s genuinely expecting an answer. He’s also very happy talking to oddballs and weirdos, and given that Brokenwood seems to be full of both weirdos and dead people, it’s the perfect town for him.

What do you think fans are going to love about season four of THE BROKENWOOD MYSTERIES?
People love watching the core relationships, and working out who did it. The genre of the whodunit is actually about empowering the audience. So what we’re doing is asking an audience to work with us, to fill in the gaps, they’re very active in the watching, because they’re going, ‘Was it him? Was it her? Was it them?’ That’s where the magic happens.
