The local village newspaper carried this strange advertisement -- lodged anonymously of course.
"A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October 29th, at Little Paddocks, at 6:30 p.m...".
Of course, everyone in the village makes sure they have some excuse to drop into the Blacklock's cottage that evening. Letitia Blacklock (Zoe Wanamaker) is quite put out at all the requests for a cup of sugar or a glass of sherry.
And lo and behold, a murder is indeed committed. And who is at hand to unmask the guilty culprit? Yes, it's our spinster-sleuth Miss Marple, played with sweet guile by celebrated actress Geraldine McEwan, in her best television role since she became Lucis in the delicious Mapp and Lucia series.
Should I tell you who dunnit? Send me an email to find out. Even better, watch the show. It's worth seeking out.
Not a brilliant transfer, but this softish anamorphic picture is quite acceptable, and the two-channel sound is as good for general whoduunit purposes as you could want.
There are no extras of any kind. For those, see Region One for the Miss Marple box-set of four dramatisations.
