Joan Hickson stars as Agatha Christie’s most beloved character, the prim and proper Miss Marple, in this classic whodunit. Why is Miss Marple’s friend, Carrie-Louise Serrocold, being systematically poisoned? Miss Marple’s trip to Stonygates, the rambling country mansion owned by Carrie-Louise and her third husband, Lewis, might shed some light on the mystery. Then again, it might add more intrigue to an already bizarre scenario involving an extended family and a reformatory for young criminals where violence seems to lurk just below the surface. When shots are fired in a darkened room and the victim turns up elsewhere, Miss Marple deduces the identity of the killer, but not how the murder was committed until she discovers the secret hobby of a trusted cohort.Not even friends of Miss Marple’s (Joan Hickson) can escape the strange disturbances that always seem to occur in the same vicinity as our overly curious and incredibly charming leading lady. When Elspeth McGillicuddy goes for a short trip to visit her good friend Miss Marple, she chances to witness a woman being strangled to death on a passing train. Nobody wants to believe a dithering old lady with a vivid imagination, not even the detective, because no corpse shows up to corroborate her story. Fortunately for everyone else, Miss Marple knows better than to dismiss her good friend’s wild imagination. Instead, Miss Marple takes on the quest to find the corpse and solve the murder, which brings her to Rutherford Hall. Here she meets the rather crusty and cranky character Luther Crackenthorpe, who inadvertently helps her fish out the clues and gather them in her mystery-solving net. As always, it’s up to Miss Marple to figure out whodunit this time. –Samantha Allen Storey

“I can see how irritating this must be for you, Inspector… … so I’ll ignore what you just said. After all, we may both be involved in this business at a later date. When *one* of us is clever enough to find the body.”There she sits: A white-haired elderly spinster, dressed in tweeds and a pair of knitting needles in her lap, seemingly more interested in village gossip than in the goings-on of the world at large. But when told by Milchester C.I.D. Inspector Slack (David Horovitch) that no further investigation is to take place into her…
