Summary

As Miss Marple sat basking in the Caribbean sunshine, she felt mildly discontented with life. True, the warmth eased her rheumatism, but here in paradise nothing ever happened. Eventually, her interest was aroused by an old soldier's yarn about a strange coincidence.

Infuriatingly, just as he was about to show her an astonishing photograph, the Major's attention wandered. He never did finish the story.... June Whitfield stars as the sharp-witted spinster sleuth in a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation.

Another good one!

I am so enjoying listening to these dramatisations and June Whitfield is brilliant as Miss Marple. Having said that favourite is and was Joan Hickson as Miss Marple. Aside from that it is Agatha Christie at her finest and can easily listen to them again and again!

Superb!

Fabulous dramatisation performed by an all star cast. I'm sure that the cast have as much enjoyment in performing these dramatisations as we do in listening. Just delightful and,as ever,sorry when it came to an end. However, these are so perfect that I will listen over again many times no doubt! Much recommended!

It's Agatha it's Brilliant & it's HERE ! Excellent

I have the full collection of EVERYTHING Agatha Christie - Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot & all the others. You cannot beat listening to a full cast Christie. Settle down in your fave comfy chair a nice drink & relax for over 2 riveting hours of fun & intrigue. All the Christie stories are perfect British crime thrillers. You will not be disappointed.

The best Marple

June Whitfield is marvellous as Miss Marple. Lively, intelligent, her touch of humour and pussycat persona make her the perfect Nemesis!

A joy to listen to...

Wonderful old fashioned story, well acted and not interfered with - as so many Agatha Christie dramatisations have been recently. Enjoy!

Old but good

An interesting programme to compare to modern TV adaptations. One has to think in an old fashioned way, a good experience which I was glad to take.

Love the Dramatised Versions

Any additional comments?

These dramatised are great for driving. They don't require much focus. I love June Whitfield as Miss Marple - she shines!

Splendid

was totally enjoyable, I felt I was watching the film itself. One can get so caught up trying to solve the case like in the series itself.
