The Murder at the Vicarage

When the hated Colonel Protheroe is found murdered in the sleepy village of St Mary Mead, Miss Marple is puzzled why so many people want to confess.

The Moving Finger

A nasty case of poison-pen letters brings Miss Marple to the East Anglian village of Lymston.

The Body in the Library

Who is the strange young blonde lying strangled in the library of Gossington Hall? Fortunately for the Bantrys, Miss Marple is their neighbour.

A Murder Is Announced

Everyone in Chipping Cleghorn is intrigued by the advertisement predicting a murder at Little Paddocks. But when the lights go out at the appointed hour, no one thinks it's a joke any more.

They Do It With Mirrors

To reassure an old friend, Miss Marple agrees to go down to Stonygates, a rambling country mansion. There she finds a curious ménage - an extended family and a reformatory for young criminals - where violence seems just below the surface.

A Pocketful of Rye

An old nursery rhyme comes true in a grotesque double murder. Only Miss Marple sees the connection and that the next victim will be an old acquaintance - unless she can uncover the murderer in time.

4.50 From Paddington

A murder witnessed from a train, a missing body and an eccentric old patriarch... A bizarre riddle for Miss Marple and a deadly family intrigue.

The Mirror Crack'd From Side to Side

When a woman is poisoned during the village fête at Gossington Hall, the police deduce the intended victim was film star, Marina Gregg. Then another woman is murdered. Can Miss Marple succeed where the police have failed?

A Caribbean Mystery

Filmed on location in the West Indies. Miss Marple is finding her luxurious island holiday sadly flat - until Major Palgrave is found dead in his hotel bed. More murders follow and Miss Marple once more is in her element.

At Bertram's Hotel

There is something rather too perfect about Bertram's Hotel, Miss Marple decides during a stay there in London. Even the murder seems rehearsed.

Nemesis

A friend asks Miss Marple to investigate a crime. Instead of giving any clues, he books her on a coach tour of historic homes. Murder is on the itinerary.

Sleeping Murder

A couple's new dream home becomes a nightmare when the young wife sees a vision of a strangled woman in the hall. Was she murdered or is she yet to be killed?

A Very British Murder: This three part series explores Britain’s fascination with murder and how it has become a central theme to books, television shows and movies.

Definitive Miss Marple
This is the must-have collection for Miss Marple fans -- no one has nailed it like Joan Hickson. Great acting, great production ... altogether satisfactory.

Miss Marple - Complete Co
Received my order 2 days ago. Although I have watched the Miss Marple mysteries over the years I decided to get this Complete Collection for my library and have watched 2 of the 3 discs in Volume 1 which my husband and I enjoyed them enormously - no one portrays Miss Marple like Joan Hickson - and looking forward to watching the rest of the collection

The Definitive Jane
We first glimpsed Hickson years ago, as a crow-like scullery maid in one of Margaret Rutherford's Marple movies, Decades later, she re-emerged to restore Jane Marple to life the way Christie wrote her: grave and kindly, her apparent vagueness concealing a mind rapt in conundrums. Showy effects--Rutherford's mugging, Lansbury's horsiness, McEwan's hint of malice--do not distract Joan from her quest for the essential character. Like Jane, Joan is a sleuth for truth.

Almost perfect
It is a great product, but it would've been better if all episodes were in continuous feature length format. The feature length format is better for Agatha Christie's stories than the multiple part structure.
