Vastly better than the unsuccessful 1980 film version of this story (and, incidentally, restoring Agatha Christie's full title - a reference to Tennyson's "The Lady Of Shallot"), the last segment in the BBC's series of Miss Marple adaptations brings a fine show to a satisfying close. Claire Bloom gives an excellent performance as the tough, self-centred, but finally very vulnerable movie star who may - or may not - have become the object of an assassin's attentions, whilst Gwen Watford, returning to the role of Miss Marple's friend Dolly Bantry (now a widow, and not as well off as once she was), is both touching and funny. Dominating the whole thing, as always, is the quietly majestic Joan Hickson. This really was the perfect meeting of actress and role.
