Storyline

While traveling on a train to London, Miss Marple is told by a woman she has never met, Lavinia Pinkerton, that she is certain there have been two murders in her village of Wychwood. When Lavinia dies in what is purported to be an accident - she fell, or was pushed, down the escalator in a tube station - Miss Marple decides to visit Wychwood and see what she can find. As Miss Marple is apt to say, one English village is like another and Wychwood has its secrets like any other. The first woman to die was Florie Gibbs who, despite being experienced in such things, supposedly ate poison mushrooms she picked herself. The second was the local vicar who failed to wear his mask when using poison near his beehives. The third is a young woman who, it is said, accidentally drank hat dye instead of her cough medicine. Miss Marple finds a clue that points to a motive with origins many years before and a secret someone will do anything, including murder, to keep hidden. Written by garykmcd

Why Miss Marple?
26 September 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In the original book by Agatha Christie, the detective is a Luke Fitzwilliam, a retired policeman from Malaya. How Miss Marple got into this is beyond me? The original story was NOT, it is widely understood, one of Miss Christie's best works, and this is a very poor and inaccurate adaptation. Why did they bother? The best Miss Marple characterisation by far anyway was Margareth Rutherford back in the 1960s. The ones on the telly since have all been a bit thin and watery, in my opinion. The new character of Luke Fitzwilliam, was introduced by Agatha Christie in preference to both Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot - her other equally famous creation. The book was published in 1939, and critics at the time gave it an unfavourable reception, commenting on the absence of both Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot. It was felt that perhaps Miss Christie had grown 'tired' of these characters, which she had been using for many years.
