Summary

June Whitfield returns as the deceptively mild spinster sleuth in three full-cast BBC Radio 4 dramatisations.

Specially broadcast to mark the 125th anniversary of Agatha Christie's birth, these brand new dramas are based on three of her best short stories.

Tape-Measure Murder: When Mrs Spenlow is murdered in St Mary Mead, the village gossips all agree that her husband must have killed her – until Miss Marple is called as an alibi....

The Case of the Perfect Maid: Miss Marple investigates the problem of a lady's maid who has been mysteriously sacked – while also helping her crime writer nephew Raymond West to cure his writer's block.

Sanctuary: Miss Marple and her god-daughter Bunch are horrified when they discover a dying man in the local church. Can Miss Marple deduce his identity – and his killer – from his last words?

First published in the collection Miss Marple's Final Cases, these three delightfully clever tales will keep you guessing till the end. Starring June Whitfield – reprising her role as Miss Marple for the first time since 2001 – they are dramatised for BBC Radio 4 by Joy Wilkinson.

Great collection

Also purchased Joan Hickson's narrated version and though there are more stories I do prefer this audio version, only wish there were more story collections of Miss Marple.

Miss Marple`s Final Cases

I didn't realise, until I started to listen, that i have heard the stories before, with Joan Hickson. However, they were well dramatized and I did enjoy them, although it was all rather short.

Excellent simple Marple with great Ms Whitfield

Loved this selection. Easy listening, wonderfully portrait. What's not to love about these early cases?

I wish the stories had been longer

I love Miss Marple, always have. But I wish the cases in this collection had been a little longer and took a little longer to unravel.

Glad they have done another Marple dramatisation

Although June Whitfield's performance is more subdued in this dramatisation , we have to consider that these are indeed Miss Marple's final cases and she's not getting any younger ( both the character and the performer ) ! I always think of June Whitfield as Miss Marple in the BBC dramatisations , so I was very happy that she was able to do these Final Cases . My only complaint is the dramatisations were very short but then I went on to listen to Miss Marple's Final Cases as read by Joan Hickson and each story was quite short as well . Miss Marple is my favourite Agatha Christie character and I thought this dramatisation was terrific .
