Murder, She Wrote
, which was wildly popular for its entire 12-year run, was one of the most successful mystery shows of all time. Angela Lansbury stars as Jessica Fletcher, a widowed mystery writer who stumbles across a murder in each episode, and cleverly deduces who the criminal is before anyone else can. Much of the viewer's pleasure comes from investigating the crime along with Jessica, and from Lansbury's charming portrayal of the amateur sleuth, a role for which she received an astonishing 12 Emmys. Murder, She Wrote
also broke new ground by being one of the very first (and still one of the few) American television programs to feature an older woman in the lead role. Features all the episodes from the fifth series.
