  • Why is the son of a millionaire living as a tramp? And why does murder interrupt a coach trip? Miss Marple honours her pledge to a dead man by finding out.

    Best to forget that this story is actually a sequel of sorts to "A Caribbean Murder", which was not adapted for the "Miss Marple" series for a few more years. Certainly, the dying Mr. Rafiel whom we see briefly at the start of the episode seems worlds away, in Frank Gatliff's abbreviated but moving performance, from the tremendous character played by Donald Pleasence when "A Caribbean Murder" was finally aired in 1989. Taken solely on its own merits, this is a very fine Marple episode, done with great skill in every department. Once again, the past holds the key to horrors that have gone unacknowledged or unsolved until the cold-eyed spinster from St. Mary Mead became interested; justice takes time, but it is eventually achieved.
