Overview

June Whitfield stars as Miss Marple in eight thrilling full-cast BBC Radio 4 dramatizations. In A Pocket Full of Rye, a spate of unusual deaths is linked to the nursery rhyme "Sing a Song of Sixpence." In 4.50 from Paddington, after witnessing a murder on a train, Mrs McGillicuddy calls on Miss Marple. In At Bertram's Hotel, crime lurks beneath the surface of a respectable Mayfair hotel. In The Body in the Library, a mysterious blonde is found murdered in Dolly Bantry's library. In The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side, at a benefit held at Gossington Hall, harmless Mrs. Badcock is fatally poisoned. In A Caribbean Mystery, bored in paradise, Miss Marple finds her interest aroused by an old soldier's tale. In Murder at the Vicarage, everyone in St Mary Mead detested Colonel Protheroe—but who killed him? Finally, in A Murder is Announced, a startling entry in a local paper's personal column leads to a deadly shooting. These BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatizations feature eight of Miss Marple's most complex and intriguing cases. Based on the original novels by Agatha Christie, they are performed by a stellar cast. Duration: 16 hours approx.
