Storyline

When Clive Trevelyan - Member of Parliament, war hero and heir apparent to Prime Minister Winston Churchill- is killed, Miss Marple sets about to solve the case. Trevelyan has made his fortune many years before in Egypt having secretly uncovered a lost tomb. He is killed during a major snowstorm when there are no police available. There are several possible suspects including Trevelyan's ward, James Pearson and his fiancée Emily Trefusis; his political agent, John Enderby; a journalist Charles Burnaby; a visiting American Martin Zimmerman; and several other apparently disinterested parties. A convict has also escaped from Dartmoor prison. Miss Marple concludes that Trevalyan's murder is related to his days in Egypt and sets about to identify the murderer. Written by garykmcd

Tripe
15 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sadly, the whole Marple series with Geraldine McEwan is utter tripe. Every Christie story is mangled beyond recognition. Innocent characters in the books are guilty in the TV series and vice versa. Homosexual elements that never existed in the books are added in for no apparent reason (usually as the guilty party.) Marple is inserted into stories that never were Marple stories to begin with – the worst example is when she replaced Tommy in a Tommy and Tuppence story. Finally, Geraldine McEwan is more like Margaret Rutherford's Marple, which Christie hated than the Marple of the books. The superb Joan Hickson version is so true to the original characters in the books, and so well done, it is unlikely it will ever be topped.
