Storyline

Miss Marple finds herself on a bit of a holiday and staying at the very posh Bertram's Hotel, where she stayed as a child and for which she has very fond memories. Things take a sinister turn when a hotel maid, Tilly Rice, is found strangled on the roof. Miss Marple can't help but investigate but is assisted by Jane Cooper, also a hotel maid, who is in fact a younger version of Miss Marple. When an attempt is made on the life of a hotel guest, Elvira Blake the two Janes work together to find the motive and the identity of the killer. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

In the opening minutes, as Miss Marple stares in wonderment at the lobby of Bertram's Hotel, the manager is on the phone and says, "Uh, no, I'm afraid Miss Otis regrets she's unable to lunch today." The line is from the 1934 Cole Porter song "Miss Otis Regrets" performed by many artists including Ella Fitzgerald and 'Nat 'King' Cole', and more recently by Bette Midler on the final episode of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962).

Quotes

Miss Marple: Who sends a written death threat? Surely not someone who truly intends to kill the recepient. It's common sense not to warn them.

Murder Most FOUL
25 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like many here, I was really thrilled to see that there was a new Miss Marple series in the works. But yikes! This series is beyond bad. It should have been a comedy because it doesn't have the feel or look of a mystery. I have to admit that I also found the characters foolish and at some point didn't really care who did what. There was no depth to any of them. I think the people who put the series together just wanted to employ a slew of older, maybe out-of-work actors. Everything spins so quickly, with no real character development that it's hard to understand how anyone fits in. When things are explained at the end, they use that time to even introduce characters (like the priest) who are supposed to be part of the mystery. I was annoyed and confused as to how these people fit in because they weren't interacting in the episode. I also found the ending totally stupid, allowing the maid to do the explaining. A real insult to Miss Marple fans. Geez!! Forget the old adage that the "Butler Did It", in this episode "The Maid Did it." Or should I way the producers let the maid do it. They pushed Miss Marple out of the episode. This is Murder Most Foul indeed.
