Agatha Christie's Marple (or simply Marple) is a British ITVtelevision series loosely based on the books and short stories by British crime novelist Agatha Christie. The title character was played by Geraldine McEwan from the first to third series, until her retirement from the role, and by Julia McKenzie from the fourth series onwards.Following the conclusion of the sixth series, it was announced that the BBC had acquired the rights for the production of Agatha Christie adaptations, suggesting that ITV would be unable to make a seventh series of Marple.[1][2]

Overview[edit]

Each series consists of four feature-length episodes, except series six which only has three episodes. The first six episodes were all adaptations of Miss Marple novels by Christie. Subsequent episodes were derived both from works featuring Miss Marple but also Christie novels that did not feature the character. The title of the series removes the word Miss from Miss Marple, to match the title of the Agatha Christie's Poirot series.[3]

Plot outline[edit]

Main article: List of Agatha Christie's Marple episodes

Agatha Christie's Marple follows the adventures of Miss Jane Marple, an elderly spinster living in the quiet little village of St. Mary Mead. During her many visits to friends and relatives in other villages (and sometimes when simply being at home), Miss Marple often stumbles upon or hears about mysterious murders, which she helps solve. Although the police are sometimes reluctant to accept Miss Marple's help, her reputation and unparalleled powers of observation eventually win them over.

During her adventures, Miss Marple is aided by close friends, relatives, or other allies that she meets, which include Tommy and Tuppence - protagonists of another series of Christie novels.

Recurring characters[edit]

The only character to appear in every episode is Miss Marple herself, played by Geraldine McEwan through series 3 and by Julia McKenzie from series 4 onwards.[4][5]

A few other characters appear in more than one episode, although they are not always played by the same actor. Exceptions are Joanna Lumley, who plays Mrs Dolly Bantry in The Body in the Library and The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side, and Stephen Churchett, who appears as the coroner in four episodes.

Dr Haydock appears in three episodes, but is played by three different actors: Robin Soans in The Body in the Library, Robert Powell in The Murder at the Vicarage and Neil Stuke in The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side. Jason Rafiel, an old friend of Marple's, was voiced by Herbert Lom (who also made an on-screen appearance as Mr Dufosse in The Murder at the Vicarage) in Nemesis and played by Antony Sher in A Caribbean Mystery.

The series also featured real-life characters: Winston Churchill appeared in The Sittaford Mystery, Noël Coward in 4:50 from Paddington, Louis Armstrong in At Bertram's Hotel, and Ian Fleming and James Bond in A Caribbean Mystery.

Adaptations[edit]

Christie wrote twelve novels about Miss Marple, all of which have been adapted for the series. They are:

In addition, a short story featuring Miss Marple, 'The Blue Geranium,' was adapted into a full-length episode.

Three others were modified by the show - 'Greenshaw's Folly' and 'The Thumb Mark of St. Peter' were combined into one story, whilst elements of 'The Herb of Death' were incorporated into the adaptation of 'The Secret of Chimneys.'

It ceased to be likely that the remaining 18 short stories would be adapted by ITV after the BBC bought the rights to produce Agatha Christie adaptations.

Awards and nominations[edit]

Geraldine McEwan was nominated for a Satellite Award in 2005 for her role as Miss Marple in Series 1.[6] The first series was also nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award in 2005.

Worldwide distribution[edit]

Agatha Christie's Marple is aired in the United States on PBS on Mystery!, where it is presented as Agatha Christie's 'Miss Marple.' The series is broadcast to the whole of Canada on CBC and in French on Radio-Canada. In Australia, Agatha Christie's Marple airs on ABC1.

Marple is also being broadcast on ATV World in Hong Kong, on EBS and MegaTV in South Korea and on CCTV-8 in China. China, however, refused to show The Body in the Library and Murder Is Easy, due to the involvement of a lesbian and an incestuous relationship respectively. Why Didn't They Ask Evans? was extensively edited, due to the involvement of War-period China.

In Norway, the series has been airing on state broadcaster NRK1 as 'Miss Marple.' In Sweden, Marple airs on TV4, the biggest commercial TV station. In Poland, the series airs on Ale Kino+. In the Czech Republic it is broadcast under the name Slečna Marplová, the Czech for 'Miss Marple.'

In Brazil, the series airs on HBO Brasil.

Changes to novels[edit]

The show has sparked controversy with some viewers for its adaptations of the novels.

  • The Body in the Library makes some significant changes including a lesbian affair and the identity of one of the killers.
  • The Murder at the Vicarage makes up Miss Marple's early life.
  • 4:50 from Paddington changes the killer's motive.
  • A Murder Is Announced changes a couple of the characters and changes an implied lesbian relationship in the book to an explicit one.
  • Sleeping Murder inserts a central romantic relationship and a travelling band of singers named 'The Funnybones.'
  • The Moving Finger has a few minor changes.
  • By the Pricking of My Thumbs was not originally a Miss Marple book, and changes many plot elements.
  • The Sittaford Mystery is very loosely based on the novel and changes the identity of the killer and inserts Miss Marple into the story.
  • At Bertram's Hotel was only very loosely based on the novel, and changes the plot, characters and setting.
  • Ordeal by Innocence includes drastic changes to the characters, the least of which is adding Marple into the story.
  • Towards Zero was not originally a Miss Marple book.
  • Nemesis is only very loosely based on the novel, and experiments with both the suspects and setting.
  • A Pocket Full of Rye is a faithful adaption of the book, with only minor changes to the way characters are described.
  • Murder Is Easy was very loosely based on the book and it was not originally a Miss Marple book, also changing the murderer's motive.
  • They Do It with Mirrors combines a few characters and adds an arson attack.
  • Why Didn't They Ask Evans? was not originally a Miss Marple book, and was completely rewritten.
  • The Pale Horse was not originally a Miss Marple book and makes many liberties with the plot.
  • The Secret of Chimneys was not originally a Miss Marple book; it also changes the killer's identity and uses elements from 'The Herb of Death.'
  • 'The Blue Geranium' is greatly embellished from the original short story.
  • The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side keeps closely to the original story.
  • A Caribbean Mystery keeps closely to the original story, apart from the inclusion of real-life novelist Ian Fleming and ornithologist James Bond.
  • 'Greenshaw's Folly' is combined with 'The Thumb Mark of St. Peter;' the story is embellished, but keeps to the core of the original.
  • Endless Night was not originally a Miss Marple book, but is very similar to 'The Case of The Caretaker.'

DVD releases[edit]
