Agatha Christie's Marple: Geraldine Mcewan Collect
Many actresses have portrayed Agatha Christie's ace sleuth Miss Jane Marple over the years. One of the most popular thespians, however, was Geraldine McEwan, who assumed the role in 2004 and sustained it for three series and twelve individual mysteries. This box set contains all twelve of those episodes, as they originally aired on British television - with guest stars including Derek Jacobi, Zoë Wanamaker and Joanna Lumley.

I enjoy these episodes with Geraldine McEwen who I believe is the top Miss Marple, here are all of her appearances (unfortunately she left the series afterward). I like the first year the best, the first season includes Murder at the Vicarage, The Body in the Library, 4:50 From Paddington, and A Murder is Announced. Miss McEwen has a certain charm, a twinkle in her eye and a great way of putting people in their place without offending them, no one can help being charmed by her. Sure, it's the character of Miss Marple to be this way but Miss McEwen acts the part the best. This will probably become a Blue Ray edition in the near future. The second year episodes are: Sleeping Murder, The Moving Finger, By the Pricking of My Thumbs (along with Tommy and Tuppence), and The Sittaford Murder. Third season episodes are: Towards Zero, Nemesis, Bertram's Hotel (excellent), and Ordeal by Innocence.
I have watched these wonderful mysteries on Netfliix and Acorn raco streaming, and tv. When I went to BN to buy them, I cannot tell which DVD package has what episodes. I give this a one star for very poor attention to the details..... because for those of us who have seen most of them, it IS necessary to know which titles we are buying! It is quite silly to rate an excellent product so low because of lack of information.
