The Quintessential Miss Marple - fabulous!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Miss Marple Collection [DVD] (DVD)
To me, there are only two actresses who have portrayed Miss Marple correctly - the wonderful Margaret Rutherford, whose four DVD box set is one of my most treasured gifts, and Joan Hickson who brought Miss M to the attention of the masses when the TV series aired.
Each episode brilliantly recreates the era in which the stories are set - when everyone knew everyone else; you could leave your home unsecured as you popped to the shops; and when cars were a novelty - and this is one of those series when, on a rainy day or when you are feeling unwell or a bit low, you can watch with a cuppa and slice of cake and feel 'all is well with the world'.
Beautifully acted, set in stunning surroundings and with stories that actually make sense, this box set is an absolute delight. Just buy it.
