Ben Matlock is a very expensive criminal defense attorney who charges $100,000 to take a case. Fortunately, he's worth every penny as he and his associates defend his clients by finding the real killer.
From England to Egypt, accompanied by his elegant and trustworthy sidekicks, the intelligent yet eccentrically-refined Belgian detective Hercule Poirot pits his wits against a collection of first class deceptions.
Former high school English teacher and famed mystery writer Jessica Fletcher has a gift for solving mysteries. You see, it seems murder follows her around, whether it be to the houses of her seemingly endless number of friends, nieces, and nephews or right in her hometown of Cabot Cove, Maine. Jessica is sometimes assisted by her friend Dr. Seth Hazlitt or the local sheriff, Amos Tupper (later Sheriff Metzger). Sometimes, later in the series, Jessica would only narrate the episode, which would be a dramatization of one of her novels. In later seasons, Jessica moved to New York City to be closer to her publisher and also closer to crime. Written by

One of Producer Peter S. Fischer's favorite movie stars was Doris Day. The MSW crew usually pitched who they "wished" could be cast in a featured guest spot to the two Producers, Peter Fischer and Bob O'Neill. During the 1991-92 season, Doris Day was approached with an offer for a guest role. Interested, Day's response implied that she would spend two weeks away from Carmel Valley to film an episode. Then came Day's terms for her contract including her son receiving a "producer credit with pay" for her guest shot. Universal-MCA, CBS, and the producers had agreed upon her price to appear, but refused to agree with her contract clause for her son's credit/pay while she participated in the filming. See more »
Murder She Wrote is a very suspenseful and entertaining show. Angela Lansbury is a wonderful actress and i wish that she would do television again. This show will be missed and i hope they keep on playing the re-runs...if you like this show then i think you should read Dame Agatha Christies books...which some of the episodes were based on.
