Overview

Season four of Murder, She Wrote finds Angela Lansbury back on duty as Jessica Fletcher, a middle-aged author of murder mysteries who can't help getting mixed up in (and invariably solving) real-life homicide. The season opens as Jessica goes on another vacation jaunt, this one to Paris, where she is confronted with the murder of a nasty loan shark. In later excursions, Jessica would ply her trade in Quebec, London, Washington, D.C., and the Deep South, encountering such guest stars as Claire Trevor, Theodore Bikel, Macdonald Carey, Janet Leigh, Henry Gibson, Jane Powell, Shirley Jones, and Eddie Albert. This season marks a "return appearance" by Jessica's British cousin Emma MacGill (also played by Angela Lansbury, whose real name is McGill). This time around, Emma performs the old music-hall ditty "Spoon With Me" which Lansbury previously sang in the 1946 feature film Till the Clouds Roll By. Season four also represents the final appearance of Jessica's close friend Sheriff Amos Tupper, a character written out of the series when actor Tom Bosley defected for his own weekly detective show, Father Dowling Mysteries. ~ All Movie Guide

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Despite living in the idyllic town of Cabot Cove, Maine, mystery writer Jessica Fletcher never seems at a loss for murders. Guests in this splendid fourth-season set include TV favorites Patrick McGoohan, Ray Walston, Eli Wallach, Anne Meara, and many others.

Murder, She Wrote - The Complete Fourth Season 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

Fourth season of terrific mystery solving by Jessica Fletcher (better known as Angela Lansbury). Angela Lansbury always gives a superb performance as do all of the supporting actors, which include the regulars Dr. Hazlett (William Windom) and Sherf. Tupper (Tom Bosley). Great guest stars as Van Johnson, June Allyson, Julie Adams, Keith Michell and Len Cariou. A murder is committed and Jessica usually ends of helping local law enforcement solve the crime. Local could be in Cabot Cove, Maine or in New York City where Jessica might be visiting her nephew Grady Fletcher or one of her many friends. Sit back and enjoy as each episode unfolds a new murder and murder suspect(s).
