Miss Marple

MarpleAgatha Christie’s Miss Marple, starring Joan Hickson ★★★★

I’m told that there have been a number of Miss Marples, but this set only has Joan Hickson. There are a total of 10 episodes that Betsy and I watched. Agatha Christie is a master story teller, though the mysteries tend to follow a rough schema as discussed with the Poirot series. Miss Marple, contrary to Poirot, is an amateur detective, a little old lady who happens to be observant, and able to put confusing clues together. Hickson fills the role of Miss Marple quite convincingly, and I’m not sure anyone else could do as well as her. Like the Poirot novels, these are quite entertaining, very well done, and worthy to watch late at night.
