Storyline

While visiting her friend Marjorie Attfield, Miss Marple learns that her son Bobby had recently found a body, identified as a Mr. Pritchard, on the cliff side. He's received a letter asking him to appear at the enquiry but it seems to be a wild goose chase meant to keep him away from the real enquiry taking place elsewhere. Now accompanied by a friend, Frankie Derwent, they trace the dead man to nearby Castle Savage, home to a dysfunctional family with great deal of money. The family patriarch, Jack Savage, had died not long ago and the dead man had some connection to the Savages. But what is the key to solving the mystery of Pritchard's last words to Bobby as he lay dying: "Why didn't they ask Evans?". Written by garykmcd

I think this is the worst Agatha Christie film I've seen
1 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have long been a fan of Agatha Christie we have boxed sets of Poirot and Miss Marple boxed sets, i thought the 2009 version of Why Didn't They Ask Evans was awful, nothing like the book, in the book someone was playing golf on the cliffs the ball went over and a man was found on the cliffs below, not in the 2009 version, to me if a film is being made of a book, keep to the book, i have found this on many occasions. I am in no way a prude but I have never known in an Agatha Christie film with Margaret Rutherford or Joan Hickson the words "bloody" "bugger" or "bastard" being used and I didn't see the need here in the 2009 version of Why Didn't They Ask Evans.
