I have a soft spot for 'Nemesis', the last Jane Marple case to be written. Late Christie is often criticised for being full of plot holes and inconsistencies and I agree that these can sometimes be jarring. In 'Nemesis' for example, it is never satisfactorily explained why the present-day murder happened at all! The murderer can surely have only felt a slight unease at the presence of the victim - why not just talk to him/her in the first instance rather than blundering in with a hugely risky murder that left more to chance than anything else? There are other things too BUT one must remember that Christie was getting on in years by this stage in her career and it is perhaps inevitable that her plots would not be as tight as in earlier years. Besides, the overall story is still very compelling and the later Christie novels often contain some of her most fascinating characters. In the case of 'Nemesis', these include Miss Temple, the Professor, the Archdeacon, Miss Cooke and Miss Barrow and most importantly, the Bradbury-Scott sisters who remain some of my favourite Christie characters ever!

This BBC radio adaptation features, as always, June Whitfield as Miss Marple. I like her portrayal of the character but I do find it a little chilly. It was only when listening to 'Nemesis' that I realised why. She speaks very precisely and with no abbreviations - she will say 'I am' instead of 'I'm' or 'It is' instead of 'Its'. It is very distinctive and separates her effectively from the other voices. There is no fear of this Miss Marple shying away from her duties as Nemesis! The other voices are very good on the whole and I especially liked all the Bradbury-Scotts - all very distinctive and just right for the roles.

For me June Whitfield is Miss Marple just as John Moffatt is Hercule Poirot. It's a great shame the BBC didn't do all the Miss Marple stories with June Whitfield. Still Nemesis remains one of my favourites, it's a great little story with some well developed charactors. It's easy to pick holes in Agatha Christie stories but why not just sit back and enjoy them.

Miss Marple is working on behalf of a dead man, Mr Raffael from A Caribbean Mystery, and to start with she has no idea what he wants her to investigate. Slowly but surely all is revealed to her and then to us the listener.

I really can't recomend Nemesis highly enough. If you like Agatha Christie ignore the strange re-written things that appear on television and go for the BBC Radio versions of Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot they are much closer to the books.

Very good Agatha Christie story. Very clever and complex plot. I particularly love audio cds with the full Radio 4 Cast dramatisation. I can highly recommend.

The Geraldine McEwan TV adaptation was vile. The BBC Joan Hickson production that preceded it was vastly superior. At least they didn't play fast and loose with the plot as the later version did. It's one of my favourite books and they muffed it!

The radio collection version is excellent and stands up to multiple listenings. One of my faves. Recommended!
