Population detail worth including?[edit]

In the first season of Murder She Wrote, the "Welcome to Cabot Cove" sign that appears in several of the episodes mentions the population as 3,560. Is this worth including in the article?— Preceding unsigned comment added by Srcastic (talkcontribs) 04:34, 23 February 2006

With the number of murders that occur in Cabot cove they should have replaced the sign with a blackboard. 08:31, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Should it be noted that if Cabot Cove was a real city in Maine the homicde rate would be well over 1000% of what it currently is? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:14, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

I only saw this series irregularly, but the sheriff mentioned someone driving north out of town on STATE Route 27, which would place Cabot Cove in Boothbay and/or Boothbay Harbor, which in turn would give an approximately correct driving time to Portland. J S Ayer (talk) 01:10, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

I should have been more explicit: two characters mentioned that the driving time to Portland was about an hour, which is reasonable, depending on one's driving habits and whether one counts from the town green or from the intersection of Maine Route 27 and U.S. 1.

The article formerly contained this statement: There was actually a town by the name of Cabot Cove in northern California, near where Alfred Hitchcock filmed The Birds. The television show, however, was filmed at Universal Studios

to which was added in December 2012: ???? I don't believe the above statement is true. The Birds was filmed in the towns of Bodega, Ca and Bodega Bay, Ca. If there is a Cabot Cove, California it is not listed on maps I have going back over 100 years. More likely someone has confused the fictitious town with the place where some outdoor scenes were shot in the village of Mendocino.

Google search for "Cabot Cove, California" returns only about fifteen hits, mostly for sites in Mendocino. I conclude that the original statement was an imposition on the gullible. It should not be restored without strong support. J S Ayer (talk) 02:47, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
