Too many changes. I watched the new Miss Marple series, excited to see what Geraldine McEwan would do with the role. Unfortunately, I don’t like what they’ve done with this latest batch of Christie’s. Mrs. McEwan is a fine actress and she brings a “fluffiness” to the role that is missing from the Hickson version. Still, there is too much tampering with the plotlines to suit me. There are significant changes made in a couple of the stories, most notably in “The Body in the Library” so let the buyer beware…

Really awful The new Miss Marple series is truly awful. Not only is Geraldine McEwen completely miscast as the elderly spinster sleuth, but the stories themselves have been distorted to make them “politically correct” in the modern sense. The result is a confusing mess. Ms. McEwen is a fine actress and I have enjoyed her in other roles, but as Miss Marple she’s a disaster. Her Miss Marple, with the little smirks and little girl voice, could hardly be described as Nemesis. Nor would she ever have gained…

Not Christie’s Story I have not read Agatha Christie’s A Murder is Announced. I can only compare this new adaptation, staring Geraldine McEwan, to the 1985 Joan Hickson adaptation. Perhaps that’s the problem. Hickson seemed spot on in the role of Marple, and the adaptations so classy, perhaps I cannot imagine someone else in the role. (Imagine someone other than Suchet doing Poirot.)
