Hats Off To HicksonBy robertconnor (177 reviews) from Gloucestershire , 08 Jan 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]A wealthy socialite suspects that her sister is being poisoned, and calls on her friend and former governess Jane Marple to help. Marple's investigations take her into the world of private institutions for young offenders.
Once again Hickson offers the benchmark perfomance as Christie's formidable yet beguiling veteran sleuth, and she is superbly matched here by stalwarts (Simmons, Ackland) and new faces (Aird is a standout) alike. Beautiful attention to detail and another reunion for Marple and the wonderful Horovitch as Inspector Slack all add up to cracking entertainment. Perhaps not one of Agatha's best stories, but a treat nevertheless. Avoid the horrible recent 'Marple' series, and watch this classic instead.

Entertaining Despite The Loose EndsBy a customer from Sussex , 20 Mar 2010Another very entertaining Miss Marple with the inimitable Joan Hickson. This one has more loose ends than usual but that doesn't really matter; it's the characters and the settings that make it. And the priceless Chief Inspector who is an amateur conjuror.
