Product Description

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...

This is one of the better adaptations, with the excellent Geraldine McEwan. The story is of Mrs McGillicuddy who sees a man strangle a woman on a passing train. Of course no one believes her, except her friend Miss Marple.Pam Ferris is fantastic as Mrs McGillicuddy she brings humour and warmth to the character, "get out the damson gin". Amanda Holden, plays Lucy Eyelesbarrow, the housekeeper hired by Miss Marple to find the body at Rutherford Hall, as this is the only place the body could have been pushed fron the train.Will she find it, and who from the hall did it. A very glamorous production. It does deviaate from the story but it does not seem to matter, as the basics are there. A good production.

I actually prefer the Joan Hickson Miss Marple's, however, this is one of my favourite and one I watch over and over again.

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.

I realize i am in a minority here but Geraldine M is one of the very few Marple characters i enjoy. She is the best at exuding that 'something' others fail to achieve ~ An empathy that allows folk to confide in her; accept her. The Christie novels have been done to death (apologies for awful cliche) and the refreshing reinterpretations are a welcome bonus.

I love this adaptation of the Agatha Christie classic. At last I own a copy. It's a wonderful cast, and even though I've read the original book and this has some adaptations I don't mind. A great whodunit.

This production looks fantastic but if you know the book, it's very disappointing. I really wanted to watch it and tried to not keep comparing it to the book or with the Joan Hickson adaptation, but it just got so silly. The makers have far too much money to spend on dreaming up surplus characters to give some well known actors a job (in Sleeping Murder they dreamed up a ridiculous storyline providing employment for several well known faces).

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.

I am a great Miss Marple fan but this was so bad that I was only able to watch the first 20 minutes. Agatha Christie would turn in her grave if she knew how her story had been ruined. It was nothing like the book.
