Patently clear the producers didn't believe in this. They overwhelm and drown out the plot, leaving viewers uneasy and restless. AA reminds of Osman, meaning people want only to hurl.

I prefer Joan Hickson but this was an absolute gem of an episode with superb acting from so many well known stars. Corrie's Mike Baldwin....who'd of thought it?

Joan Hickson is the best ever.
Robin? Joan Hickson will always be best actor to have played Miss Marple, ever. She exuded the look, poise sharp shrewd hidden cunning of Miss Marple as defined in the books by AG. The BBC achieved perfection with Joan Hickson's ,Miss Marple as ITV achieved perfection with David Suchet as Hercule Poirot. The recent ITV versions are a travesty of the Miss Marple books. Julia McKenzie & Geraldine McEwan are by comparison, lacking actors in Joan Hickson's immense shadow as Miss Marple. Any one who has seen the BBC series, can deduce nothing else.

JM is just not Marple. Too pleased with herself.

I prefer to read Agatha C's books
McEwan is the worst Miss Maple since Agatha Christie was on screen, bring back the older films; far away much better.

Enjoyed it but wish it had been on the BBC. The endless mind-rotting adverts were a pain in the a**e.

Good but for Miss Marple
Enjoyable - but do not think Julia McKenzie is right for Miss Marple.

Pity the producers turned Marple into some sort of music hall comedy melodrama. Even so, more believable than some of the ubiquitous young and vacuous head tossing posers of present day TV.
