The original series, starring Joan Hickson, ran for eight years and 12 episodes between 1984 and 1992, picking up millions of fans along the way. Of course, it helps that Christie's Miss Marple series is amongst the best-selling books in recorded history
Join alibi for a real September Sunday afternoon treat, Agatha Christie's classic amateur sleuth (played in this incarnation by Joan Hickson) is in full swing during two feature-length adventures. Put the kettle on, get the biscuits out and stand-by for some classic whodunits.
A Caribbean Mystery
The shrewd spinster is sent to convalesce in the tropical paradise of Barbados, where she finds life decidedly dull, until a grisly double murder relieves the monotony and presents her with a heaven-sent opportunity to do some serious sleuthing. Guest starring the late, great Donald Pleasance.
The Mirror Cracked From Side To Side
A famous film star arrives from America and throws a summer garden party for the entire village - where one of her fans drinks a poisoned cocktail and promptly drops dead. Fortunately the guest list includes Miss Marple, who immediately sets about tracking down the killer. Guest starring Claire Bloom.
