Episode Summary

EDIT
4.50 from Paddington
AIRED:
Elspeth McGillicuddy is travelling on the 4.50 train from Paddington Station in London. However, on the journey she apparently sees a murder take place in a passing train where a woman is strangled. But no-one has reported it and there is no corpse, and as she is already travelling to Miss Marple, she asks her to solve the case. Miss Marple asks her friend Lucy Eyelesbarrow to help as the Crackenthorpe family who live at Rutherford Hall seem to be at the heart of the mystery.moreless

  • Even if Mrs. McGillicuddy did see a murder being committed on a passing train, where on earth is the body - and who was it?

    9.5
    Miss Marple stays in the background for most of this story whilst her young friend Lucy Eylesbarrow does the legwork. A seemingly insoluble mystery gradually becomes clear as the rival factions in a highly dysfunctional family gather at an isolated country house - and yet the solution is finally to be found elsewhere, for the crime has its roots in long ago, when the world was a different place. The subtlety with which Miss Marple engineers events so that the killer cannot help but be revealed is conveyed perfectly in the understatement of Joan Hickson's performance. Even as the killer's hands enfold her fragile neck, she's absolutely in command.moreless
