‘Miss Marple Comes to Life’ (2016)

What a thought this was–a detective who can’t shoot a gun, can’t survive a fistfight, and can’t even run away. What could be more original than that? A little old lady who lives in a village!


Joan Hickson was Agatha Christie’s choice to play Miss Marple, and didn’t get to do so until she was as old as Miss Marple. The result was well worth waiting for.

Forget about any other Marples. These are the best.

    I enjoyed watching “Murder She Wrote” back in the late 80’s and early 90’s (12 seasons). Then lately they have been running again on one of our cable channels. I am enjoying them all over again. Angela Lansbury is wonderful as Jessica Fletcher (‘call me Jessica”), and is very similar to Miss Marple – that’s probably where they got the idea for her character.
