  • Endless Night

    Full Episode

    S 6 : Ep 3 - 12/29/13

    While consoling her recently-widowed friend Marjorie, Miss Marple crosses paths with the handsome Mike Rogers, a young worker with a penchant for daydreaming about his future, more specifically about the perfect house he would live in, built on the eerily beautiful Gypsy's Acre. When Mike meets and marries the ethereal American heiress Ellie Goodman, his luck changes, and with the help of his old friend and rising architect Robbie Hayman, Mike's dream house is finally built, despite the repeated warnings from Esther Lee, a local gypsy, that Gypsy's Acre is cursed ground. Miss Marple, however, senses that danger really is near at hand, especially when frightening incidents plague Mike and Ellie, culminating in an injury that leads to the arrival of Ellie's mysterious Swedish friend, Greta. But when Ellie herself meets a tragic end, Miss Marple and Mike are faced with a chilling reality: that, perhaps, supernatural nightmares truly can exist, and that - as William Blake once wrote - 'some are born to endless night'.

Then, some weeks later, Sir Bartholomew Strange also chokes to death at a dinner party he is giving, with many of the same people present. Poirot and Cartwright travel from Monte Carlo to Strange's house in Yorkshire, where Cartwright is determined to unravel the reasons behind his friend's death and also to impress Egg.
