This review is from: Agatha Christie's Marple - Series 6 [DVD] (DVD)
I consider the late Joan Hickson to have been the definitive Ms Marple and, while Geraldine McEwan is a most accomplished actress, she was not suited to the role of Jane Marple but Julia McKenzie is a most worthy successor to Joan Hickson.

In terms of sheer escapism I enjoyed the latest series of Agatha Christie's Marple and even though the stories tend towards the far-fetched, the series appears to attract some very fine actors which added to my appreciation of the DVD. Two of the episodes are based on full-length Agatha Christie books while Greenshaw's Folly is based on a short story. In fact, the novel Endless Night did not feature Ms Marple.

The DVD comprises 3 episodes:

A Caribbean Mystery
Ms Marple is staying in a hotel in the Caribbean courtesy of her nephew Raymond when a fellow guest dies apparently of a heart attack. Ms Marple refuses to believe Major Palgrave died of natural causes and sets about investigating his death,

Greenshaw's Folly
The spinster detective helps a young mother and her son by finding them refuge in a country house Greenshaw's Folly, However murder most foul soon occurs and Ms Marple steps in to solve the mystery,

Endless Night
Newlyweds Mike and Ellie decide to build their dream home on a local beauty spot called Gypsy's Acre despite warnings from local gypsy Mrs Lee that the land is cursed. The house is built and when Mike and Ellie are installed tragedy strikes, Enter Ms Marple...

I must say I failed to warm to Mike and Ellie's "Dream House" which appeared to me a bit of an eyesore!
