Show Summary

Murder seems to follow Jessica Fletcher, a former English teacher and a mystery writer full of charm, zest-for-life, and personality; who happens to become "the investigator" when traveling around the country to promote a series of novels. Murder always occurs when she is present. Even in Cabot Cove! Although Angela Lansbury was the only regular character throughout the series entire run, she was frequently joined by a number of recurring and special guest stars, including Tom Bosley as Sheriff Amos Tupper in the early seasons and Ron Masak as Sheriff Mort Metzger in the later seasons, William Windom as Dr. Seth Hazlitt, Michael Horton as her nephew Grady Fletcher (one of her many, many relatives), and from time to time Jerry Orbach would appear as private eye Harry McGraw. Orbach's role later led into a short-lived spin-off, The Law & Harry McGraw. The series aired a total of 263 color episodes from 7 October 1984 through 19 May 1996 and five telemovies (including the pilot movie, which aired in September of 1984). As of the fall of 2009, 10 seasons have been released on DVD, with the 11th season due to be released in early 2010.moreless

    • would'nt stand up in court

      The evidence she presents at the end of the show would never lead to a criminal conviction in court but the guilty party nearly always makes an immediate confession. 'Trouble in Eden' was good because the murderer didn't do that.
    • Murder, She Wrote!!!!!!

      I love this show!! I love Angela Lansbury. She was wonderful and made as family and friends to solve the mystery. Please add on the Hallmark list!!
    • Am SO disappointed!

      Read comment from francesrapp5 below. Just hooked up with satellite TV after a year away & was looking for showings. I loved watching "Murder, She Sorry to hear it was dropped. Bring it back, please, Hallmark Channel.
    • The Cabot Cove stories were my favorite.

      I didn't know Hallmark was going to stop showing the episodes. If I had known, I would have recorded my favorite episodes of Murder She Wrote. Apparently, that was only temporary, hopefully Hallmark will keep showing her shows. This weekend, July 19 and 20 will be Murder She Wrote marathon.
    • best suspense tv series!

      Despite the fact that the concept of this show is imaginary; I would have to say that this is one of the best TV series ever made. Suspense and enetertainment in one show whp wouldn't fall for that? Angela Lansbury played great from the first up to the last episode. I won't spoil anymore for those who haven't watched yet the whole episodes. Being a fan of this great crime show I looked for a great copy so I don't have to wait for the re-runs. Luckily, I saw this being sold at dvdbooth dot com which happens to provide a very excellent shipping time. Upon checking the discs, it was surprising to see it's in good shape and great quality. It has also the complete episodes, I'm really satisfied with this purchase because I will able to play this show how many times I wanted in our DVD player. There is nothing in the TV show nowadays you can compare to this show in terms of clean watching.moreless
