Miss Marple is called upon to solve her most perplexing case yet. Upon his death, financier John Rafiel asks her to solve a murder. Only problem is that the murder may or may not have place as yet and the victim is unknown. All that he has given her is two tickets on the Daffodil Tour Company's Mystery Tour. It soon becomes obvious that others on the tour were also "selected" by Mr. Rafiel. Jane Marple, assisted by her nephew Raymond West, concludes that the case must be related to that of Verity Hunt, a young woman who in 1939 was running away from an overattentive landlord and eventually disappeared. When a member of the tour dies mysteriously, she also realizes that someone is desperate to keep a deep, dark secret. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Actor Herbert Lom provides the voice of Jason Rafiel in the audio message to Miss Marple; he had previously appeared on camera as Professor Dufosse in "Marple: The Murder at the Vicarage." See more »


The Detective Constable is two inches too short to have been a Police Officer at the time this story is set. Until nearly the end of the Twentieth Century no man could enter the Police Force unless at least six feet in height. This was to give the Officer added authority and gravitas when dressed in Uniform with helmet. The rule was eventually removed because insufficient members of ethnic minorities were meeting the height requirements. See more »

Bad, but not as bad as others...
25 March 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After THE SITTAFORD MYSTERY last season, I stopped expecting good things from Marple episodes-- I sat down to watch with the lowest possible expectations. NEMESIS is a complete rewrite. The Rafiels are now Nazis (what is with the producers and Nazis???), Michael was in the Lutwaffe. Everything from Nora Broad to the disposal of the body was completely changed. Contrary to popular belief, the killer is the same as the book, however, his or her character is so dramatically altered that it is easy to see why everyone is confused. I did not particularly enjoy this episode, but after THE SITTAFORD MYSTERY, every episode seems to have SOME sort of decency.
