Miss Marple

Welcome to the Miss Marple guide at TV Rage.

Miss Marple, the spinster detective who is one of the most famous characters created by English crime writer Agatha Christie, is portrayed by Joan Hickson who starred in a dozen television mysteries about Miss Marple over the course of a decade.

Between 1984 and 1992 the British Broadcasting Corporation in association with Australia's Seven Network and America's Arts and Entertainments Network, produced an irregular series of twelve Miss Marple mysteries. The elderly, deceptively delicate Joan Hickson starred in each of these as the amateur detective from the bucolic village of St. Mary Mead.

Final: 1x12 -- The Mirror Crack'd (Dec/27/1992)

What was it that Marina Gregg, the famous film actress, saw just before a murder was committed in her house? What or who caused her expression to change so violently that one observer was reminded of Alfred Lord Tennyson:

Out flew the web and floated wide;
The mirror crack'd from side to side:
"The curse is come upon me," cried
The Lady of Shallot.

A few minutes later a body lay in Marina's large house - the second time a victim of wilful murder had been discovered there. Miss Marple, whose house in St Mary Mead is close to the scene of the murder, finds a perfect opportunity to indulge in the particular kind of 'unravelling' at which she is adept.
