McKenzie makes it watchable, But..........
24 July 2009 | by (Shreveport LA) – See all my reviews

"The Do It With Mirrors" is arguably one of Christie's lesser novels. Julia McKenzie does a good job of trying to keep it together, but the addition of the always-lousy Joan Collins was a mistake. So was the re-telling of the story, which has been done with every actress to play Miss Marple, including my all-favorite, Joan Hickson. I have Hickson's version and it's a "mod" mess with psychedelic stage plays! So I haven't really seen "Mirrors" with any actress that's worth it's salt. The problem with this series production team is the writing! All the actors try their best but they simply don't have good scripts. What a shame because we're all looking forward to a good Miss Marple series. I do enjoy McKenzie, especially in "Pocketful of Rye." I'll just check it out to see if this gets better. In the meantime, I have them on old-fashioned videotape.
