"Miss Marple" is one of the most beloved characters from the mystery books by Agatha Christie. She is sweet and a humble octogenarion who is often involved in a murder mystery. The BBC series was on the air in the United Kingdom from 1984 to 1992 and was released in the United States courtesy of PBS Television. In a nutshell, Miss Marple is a woman who lives in the village of St. Mary Mead in England and is an amateur detective. On her travels across the English countryside she encouters many mysteries and unsavory characters with murder on their minds. When Marple stumbles onto a murder, she must use her instincts and high intelligence to find out who has perpetrated the murder, taking time to review the clues in her mind as she investigates a murder in each episode. Often enough, she encounters people who are not what they seem to be in reality, giving her the chance to figure out who is capable of commiting murder and who is not. Marple is careful, because investigating murder can be a dangerous undertaking for someone of her age. On one case she travels to the sunny Carribean Island of Barbados, only to find that three murders have occured during her stay. Another episode involves an older Hollywood actress who is a target of a murder plot. However, when another woman is killed instead of the actress, Miss Marple must sort out the details of the truth of the tragedy that are not printed in the local gossip rags. Only when Marple discovers that the actress has fabricated the whole attempted murder scheme by poisoning her own drink and giving it to an admirer. It only shows that Marple can sort out any sordid scheme and malignent plot that is concocted. Next to Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple is one of the time honored characters created by Christie. With the advent of DVD and BluRay distrubution, this series can be enjoyed at home by all members of the family. Sit back, press play and enjoy the show.
