Trivia

This was the fourth and last "Murder, She Wrote" movie of the week that CBS Television/Les Moonvies negotiated with Peter and Angela Shaw, "Corymore Productions", fulfilling the negotiated settlement canceling the very popular series in 1996. The original Cabot Cove (Mendocino, California series location) never was considered for use as a basis of a story plot in any of the projected four MOW projects. Peter and Angela wished to close the show-series occurring in Ireland. During the twelve years of the CBS series, many story plots, scenarios, had been set in Ireland. Set in Ireland, second unit filming always was organized to film establishing exterior buildings, landscapes, an automobile driving on country lanes with matching vehicles filmed in conjunction of the film's local Los Angeles exteriors. This last project gave an excuse for Angela and Peter to film the Ireland inserted establishing shots after filming was completed at Universal Studios. After these exterior Ireland street establishing insert shots were completed, the editors completed and delivered the finished two hour special to CBS. Filmed during 2002, the last "Murder, She Wrote" aired in 2003, after Peter Shaw's death in January 29, 2003. The film was dedicated as a memorial to Peter Shaw Pullen. See more »

Excellent.
11 May 2003 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

This TV movie was even better than the Murder She Wrote series itself. I would have thought that Angela Lansbury's acting abilities may have declined with her advanced age, but they seem to have gotten better. The plot as great, and all of the actors fit their roles perfectly.
