    I didn't even know it was until I was checking my Satellite guide.  I taped it and plan to watch it soon.   It aired on CBC Canada, Sunday April 1, 2007.

    After reading the book I've realised that I've seen an old version of it.

    i liked it actually.

    GM is growing on me as Marple.She is more cheeky and funny than the Joan Hickson version.

    I never saw it coming that the vicar was a nazi.I thought he was a bit suspicious and all but that never crossed my mind for some reason.

    I can't wait for the next one.I love Agatha Christie dramas.

    They took one of my top five Jane Marple stories and mangled the plot completely beyond recognition for no good reason. I'm not a purist who demands the scripts be untouched, but, these changes made little sense and served to undermine the cleverness of the original story elements. Someone once did some cute cartoon versions of Shakespeare called Fifteen Minute Shakespeare or something. These Marple shows are something akin to that but without the humorous intent. It was good to see Mica Paris though.
