Julia McKenzie is Enjoyable Miss Marple in "Mirrors"
28 July 2009 | by Minou07See all my reviews

Julie McKenzie steps into the role of Miss Marple for Season 4 and I'm enjoying it. Like Geraldine McEwan, she has to make-do with retelling of Agatha Christie's books. But I have to admit I am enjoying the later series with both actresses. McKenzie adds her own qualities to the role, including a sedate appearance and quieter persona. She doesn't try to be cute, stuffy ,etc. Although "Mirrors" was never one of my favorite books, I've enjoyed this very loose adaptation. They could have left the schmaltzy Joan Collins out, but she has a small role. The other actors are fine including the actress who plays Carrie Louise. I've loved her in "Dr Who" and "Shawn of the Dead." The scenery is lovely too.

Although I don't care for these retelling of Agatha Christie's well-known books, I am letting that go. Thank goodness they ditched the silly background music, garish backgrounds and dizzying camera work.
