Storyline

While consoling her recently widowed friend Marjorie, Miss Marple crosses paths with the handsome Mike Rogers, a young worker with a penchant for daydreaming about his future, more specifically about the perfect house he would live in, built on the eerily beautiful Gypsy's Acre. When Mike meets and marries the ethereal American heiress Ellie Goodman, his luck changes, and with the help of his old friend and rising architect Robbie Hayman, Mike's dream house is finally built, despite the repeated warnings from Esther Lee, a local gypsy, that Gypsy's Acre is cursed ground. Miss Marple, however, senses that danger really is near at hand, especially when frightening incidents plague Mike and Ellie, culminating in an injury that leads to the arrival of Ellie's mysterious Swedish friend, Greta. But when Ellie herself meets a tragic end, Miss Marple and Mike are faced with a chilling reality: that, perhaps, supernatural nightmares truly can exist, and that - as William Blake once wrote - ...

Very well told, but no need for Ms M.
25 June 2017 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Miss Marple visits her recently widowed friend Marjorie, during her time at Kingston Bishop she meets a handsome chauffeur, Mike Rogers. Mike is a penniless drifter, moving from one job to another, his luck changes when he meets the wealthy Ellie, the pair quickly fall in love and build a dream house in Gypsy Acre, the only downside is the site is cursed, and a gypsy has warned of impending doom.

It feels so different to every other Marple adaptation, it plays out so differently, the story is told through Mike, rather then the hugely absent Miss Marple. It plays out like a film as opposed to a drama.

Gripping from the start, where you see Mike attempting to save the life of his friend's brother. The only problem is that Miss Marple isn't needed, absent for the most part until the final twenty minutes, each time she bumps into Mike the meeting feels so contrived, even McKenzie seems a little awkward by it.

Very well performed, Tom Hughes is a tremendously handsome man, more like a model then an actor, but he leads this show so well, he's brilliant. McKenzie comes into her own at the end, but isn't given enough on screen time.

I really like this one, I love how dark it is, had they made it without Miss Marple I think it could have worked so much better. Such a shame the series ended with this one, the formula had very much started to work, this was good, but could have been great. 7/10
