Miss Marple heaven

This is what hard-core fans of the real Miss Marple will want.

I have to agree with you. Joan Hickson used to occasionally say that Agatha Christie told her when she (Hickson) was youngish that she (Hickson) would one day be the perfect Miss Marple. It came true. Margaret Rutherford spin your eyeballs out. Geraldine McEwan - go and do adverts for saccharine. Hickson is the biz.

PS. Re: ITV's production values on "Miss Marple" - blimey! - the week before last the back-projection behind two people in a car made the filming of Cary Grant and Grace Kelly in a car in "Catch a Theif" (1955) look positively realistic. I did ask my wife: "Is this a spoof?" And the acting! Wiltshire will be running out of ham at this rate.
