The UK dvd may be delayed but you can buy the American dvd,
This review is from: Agatha Christie's Marple Series 3 [DVD]  (Towards Zero / Nemesis / Ordeal by Innocence / At Bertram's Hotel) (DVD)
I totally agree with other reviewers that the constant change in release dates for Marple Series 3 is very annoying. I have no idea why dvd companies do this. However all is not lost, there is an American dvd which contains all 4 episodes of Marple series 3 available. This item is listed on Amazon and isnt over priced. A word of warning - being an American dvd it is region 1 coded and will on play on such coded players, so please make sure your player is compatable.
The 4 episodes in the series are:-
At Bertrams Hotel which has been shown on UK television. A good episode which has been changed quite alot from the original Agatha Christie novel. The music score is excellent.
Ordeal By Innocence - this novel didn't feature Miss Marple but the adaption is good and Miss Marples inclusion fits in nicely. This story has been shown on UK television.
Towards Zero hasn't been shown on UK television yet so I won't give away any plot details. The story is in my opinion the best in this series and features the great Tom Baker as a guest star.
Nemesis also hasn't been shown yet. The story has been changed quite alot from Agatha Chrisite's novel but is again very enjoyable.
So, all in all this is the best series so far. I have rated this item 4 stars based on the quality of the programme rather than the UK dvd. Don't be put off by the changes to Agatha Christie's classic novels just sit back and enjoy some great drama with a top notch cast.
