The Agatha Christie: Miss Marple - 4.50 From Paddington DVD is a feature-length adaptation of the hit TV murder mystery series, "Agatha Christie's Marple". Award-winning actress Geraldine McEwan ("The Magdelene Sisters") stars as the super detective Miss Jane Marple in the period drama. Her unassuming old lady exterior hides an excellent perception of human nature, and a razor sharp wit and intuition which she executes brilliantly to solve the most complicated crimes. Even murderers underestimate her... always at their own peril! In "4.50 From Paddington", Mrs McGillicuddy (Pam Ferris) is woken from a very pleasant dream by a train suddenly pulling parallel to hers. As they draw level, a blind flies up and she finds herself staring straight into the eyes of a woman being throttled by a man, who is silhouetted against the window...

It is brilliantly acted, well cast (not a dud performance in it) and one I have bought over again as a gift.
Rob Brydon, although having a relatively small part, is marvellous as is Amanda Holden and John Hannah.
In this adaption we have someone playing Noel Coward (?) With him is the sought-after cook and house-keeper, Lucy (played by Amanda Holden), whose opening scene sees her screeching out a song whilst he plays piano and does the stereo-typical Coward impression. It's an unnecessary scene and I could feel myself getting closer and closer to the stop button on the remote control. Also, not sure why Lucy's character is dolled up to the nines when she's supposed to be a freelance cook/house-keeper (Amanda Holden looks like something completey different). We then move to the hall where the actors play their parts like something out of cludo.
Forget these recent adaptations and watch the original Joan Hickson series (those stories may have been changed but not to the extent of these). Or better still read the books.
