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

Miss Marple meets Sherlock Holmes
14 July 2016 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

While on a train, a woman tells Miss Marple that two deaths that occurred in the town of Wynchwood and that everyone thought were accidents were in fact murders. After getting off the train the woman is pushed down an escalator and dies. Miss Marple is intrigued and visits Wynchwood. People continue to die in strange circumstances and the suspect list is long. Luckily she has the assistance of former policeman Luke Fitzwilliam, played by Benedict Cumberbatch.

One of the better Miss Marple episodes, and one of the bloodiest. The murder count ends well above the norm for the series. Quite intriguing, and the murderer is not obvious. A few good twists and red herrings along the way too.
