Agatha Christie's Marple

Show Summary

Welcome to the Agatha Christie's Marple guide at TV.com.

Geraldine McEwan (series 1-3) and Julia McKenzie (series 4-6) starred in the latest TV adaption of Agatha Christie's Miss Marple stories. Following in the footsteps of Gracie Fields, Margaret Rutherford, Angela Lansbury, Helen Hayes and Joan Hickson, Geraldine McEwan brought the part of the elderly amateur sleuth with an extraordinary knack for solving crimes back to the small screen in 2004.

Early episodes were adapted from Miss Marple novels and short stories, while later episodes see the character of Miss Marple inserted into other works by Agatha Christie. Opinions diverged as to McEwan's suitability to the role, while changes made to give the stories a more modern edge proved controversial. Despite this, the series proved popular and attracted large viewing figures in the UK and around the world. After the completion of filming of the third series, Geraldine McEwan decided to retire from the role, and the part of Miss Marple was awarded to Julia McKenzie.

A documentary entitled Behind The Scenes: Agatha Christie's Marple was shown on ITV3 after the final episode of the first series and is available on the DVD release of the first series. Agatha Christie's Marple was co-produced by ITV Studios and Agatha Christie Ltd.
