Insp. Craddock: Yes, sir. What are you asking me to do?
Supt. Slack: Tread carefully. Tact and tactics - mostly tact.
Insp. Craddock: I undestand, sir. While I'm considering tactics, I'll talk to the husband.

Not the best of the series but a nice one still
4 April 2005 | by (Utrecht, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

It may not be the best of the bunch but it's still a good TV movie. A nice touch is the fact that we see several faces that we saw in Murder At The Vicarage an earlier movie of this series. There is Dolly Bantrey ( now a widow), there is the vicar ( he was not the vicar in Murder at the vicarage but seems to have made a promotion) and some more characters. This one is surely better than the movie with Liz Taylor and Angela Lansbury. This was the last one of the series and it's a shame they did not continue it with movies of some of the Miss Marple short stories. Hickson was - up till now - the best Miss Marple. Let's hope they 'll find another person just as good and still use the short stories!
