See How They Run is a new whodunit murder mystery created by Tom George, the director of the critically acclaimed British comedy series This Country, and Mark Chappell, the writer of the Will Arnett sitcom Flaked only lasted for a short amount of time.
For the benefit of those who aren't aware, a whodunit is a type of mystery story in which a detective, who is often either semi-experienced or highly gifted, works to solve a murder case by piecing together evidence that progressively reveals itself.
Whodunits have been told on screen for a very long time, but the genre experienced a resurgence in the late 2010s with movies like Murder on the Orient Express and Knives Out, as well as streaming shows like Only Murders in the Building and The Afterparty.
This is even though whodunits have been told on screen for a long time. See How They Run deviates from the instances mentioned above in that it is set in London in the 1950s and focuses on killings connected to a stage show. This is one of how it stands out.

Who Are “See How They Run” Characters?
Even though the film See How They Run isn't based on anything, the trailers and press materials reveal a lot about the characters. As a result, we've compiled a list of character descriptions for See How They Run:
Inspector Stoppard, played by Sam Rockwell, is an experienced investigator who is pushed to the test by this case. Stalker is a dedicated amateur detective who will do everything to solve the issue, including kicking down a door while the key is right there.
Adrien Brody portrays the play's unethical director, Leo Köpernick, who may have developed enemies among his crew. Brody's role will probably be limited to flashbacks because Köpernick was the first victim in the trailer.
Petula Spencer is a British stage manager who secretly wishes she could be an actor. Ruth Wilson portrays her. Shearsmith plays John Woolf, a well-known film producer who hopes to turn this play into a film.
Oliver! and The African Queen are two examples of Woolf's work in filmmaking from the 1950s and 1960s, both of which he received an Oscar.
Actor Harris Dickinson portrays Richard Attenborough, a real-life actor who plays Detective Sergeant Trotter in the film's play inside a movie, The Mousetrap. In the years that followed, he would star in classics such as The Great Escape and Jurassic Park, despite having acted in films before that.
In 1983, Attenborough won two Oscars for Gandhi as director and producer. Since See How They Run is dramatized, he may be killed off after all even though this famous Renaissance guy didn't die until 2014.
A “celebrated” playwright, David Oyelowo, plays Mervyn Cocker-Norris, the man tasked with turning this play into a film adaptation. Charlie Cooper portrays Dennis the Usher as a crucial witness in this instance. She represents the Dame, a significant character who is solely recognized by her first name.
Woolf's helper Ann Saville, played by Pippa Bennett-Warner, is the object of his affections. Woolf was married to Ann Saville, the daughter of The Green Years director Victor Saville, until he died in 1999, when he was 89.
Sheila Sim, played by Pearl Chanda, is an accomplished actress who, like her real-life spouse Richard Attenborough, appears in the film's play inside the movie. The Actor's Charitable Trust appointed Sim following The Mousetrap, and she served on it for more than 60 years, even though she continued to perform in films. Even though Sim wouldn't die until 2016, she and her husband may be assassinated in this plot.
Actor Paul Chahidi portrays the Dame's butler Fellowes. Actress Sian Clifford describes Edana Romney, a South African lady who was John Woolf's second wife until their divorce in 1955.
The three films in which Romney appeared before her marriage were East of Piccadilly (1941), Alibi (1942), and Corridor of Mirrors (1948). In the 1950s, she became a more prominent television actress and host.
A weekly newspaper advice column Romney wrote for the Is This Your Problem? The BBC debate show she was hosting was also published. Gio (Jacob Fortune-Lloyd) is a sexy animal stuffer dating a mystery person.
