Agatha Christie’s Marple – Seasons 1-5 (available from 25th August 2020)

Geraldine McEwan (Seasons 1-3) and Julia McKenzie (Seasons 4-5) give an outstanding performance, perfectly capturing Agatha Christie’s amateur detective – and the innocent exterior which harbors a razor-sharp mind.

When the death of a fellow guest interrupts her Caribbean respite, Marple is unconvinced by the diagnosis of a heart attack, or the threat of voodoo, and cannot rest until she has uncovered the truth. Back in St. Mary Mead, Marple rescues a young friend, but they soon find themselves in an even more deadly situation.
