I very much enjoyed this ITV production based on Agatha Christie's murder mystery of the same name. One reviewer gave it a rather unjust 2 stars, but differences with the book aside, the production succeeds in being both incredibly entertaining and atmospheric.

Basic synopsis: Snowed in by an unexpected Dartmoor blizzard, Miss Marple is offered shelter by the highly successful tory politician with a less than perfect past, Clive Trevelyan. After dining at the Three Crowns Hotel, the residents indulge in the spiritual predictions of a Ouija board, which predicts Trevelyan's death. True to prediction, Trevelyan is murdered that night, and the evidence unravels a mysterious Egyption curse. In the absense of the police due to the terrible weather, the residents of Sittaford House and the Three Crowns hotel take it upon themselves to unearth the identity of the killer. But with a hotel filled with colourful characters, there are many likely candidates: Trevelyan's embittered adopted son; an escaped convict hiding on the moor, or a journalist who seems intent on getting close to Trevelyan- In fact, it seems that Trevelyan made a lot of enemies during his life- but which one killed him?

The chemistry between the characters is convincing and the acting is excellent, as you would expect from stars such as Geraldine McEwan and Timothy Dalton. Relative newcomers are equally credible, too: Zoe Telford is wildy entertaining as the coquettish and very modern heroine, Emily Trefusis; James Murray captivates as the charming and ambitious Charles Burnaby, and Lawrence Fox steals most of the laughs in his hilarious performance as Trevelyan's perpetually sozzled, good-for-nothing adopted son, James Pearson- a far cry from Fox's most famous role as DI Hathaway in the Lewis series.

This is one of my favourite Agatha Chritie episodes, quite different from the novel, but still a great story, with some great one liners - go on enjoy !!

What can you say?

Such arrogance of the production crew! The Marple ITV team seem determined to chop and hack at Agatha Christie's works. Different killer from the novel, and Miss Marple was not even in it! Utterly laughable! More obsessed with 'famous actors' than the plot.

The ITV Miss Marple series should be placed in the same category as the awful Margaret Rutherford films. Entertaining in a quaint amusing way, but not to be taken seriously.

Oh dear how sad, never mind.

I originally recorded a video tape of this when it first came out.
I must have watched that tape about ten million times, so it's no
wonder it started to get a bit tempramental! So I bought this DVD.
I was very dissapointed to find they had changed a lot of the music
which was now a bit overly-dramatic. They had also added in several more
little sentances (which they had obiously cutted out to fit it in the
broadcasting time limit!). So it was a bit weird seeing it differently.
I personally prefer it as it was, altough some of the extra stuff makes
the story a bit clearer. I would recomend this though! I think it was just
as good as the book, although it is quite loosley based on it!
