I LOVE Miss. Marple, but Ms. McKenzie is just not her and I would love to know why they cast her in the role. Geraldine McEwan was the best Miss Marple EVER! As for the story, the plot was weak, the lines were bad, and the stylization of it was downright despicable.

The actors were not good. I'd say they were bad actors, but having seen Sean Hughes in other things - I know he is not and am, therefore, willing to give the others the benefit of the doubt.

I expected better from Mr. Wilson - he has directed some GREAT shows in the past, but he fell flat on this one. Maybe, Mr. Rutman was not the wisest choice to write the screenplay.
