Blogging from A-Z April Challenge – M

MM is for Murder Mysteries, Marple and Murder, She Wrote

Murder mysteries are my favourite genre for books, tv and for movies. As many as I read or watch I’m still never quite able to figure out ‘whodunnit’. Of course, the clues are there but I don’t seem to be able to pick them out. I probably just don’t pay enough attention.

I’ve been watching these TV shows for years, ever since I can remember – I still love to watch Murder, She Wrote and occasionally catch the odd episode that I haven’t seen. And Marple, even if I’ve seen it I’ll still watch them again – my favourite adaptation being The Mirror Crack’d starring Elizabeth Taylor. Joan Hickson is my favourite Miss Marple; there have been many others who’ve taken on the role including Margaret Rutherford, Helen Hayes, Geraldine McEwan and even Angela Lansbury.

Oh Angela Lansbury; doesn’t she come across as such a wonderful lovely grandmotherly type. I love that she’s an author in Murder, She Wrote and solves the case every time and I loved her voiceover in Beauty and the Beast.

Another of my faves is Lewis; for those of you who don’t know, the bottom left image is Lewis and is an English crime murder mystery drama set in Oxford. It’s a spin off from the popular Morse series which was a series based on the books by Colin Dexter. I’m not ashamed to say I’ve got a bit of a crush on Geordie Kevin Whateley in this show 😉

    I agree that Joan Hickson was the best Miss Marple, and David Suchet was brilliant as Poirot. The British do such a great job of casting. I enjoyed your post very much.
