Agatha Christie's Marple

They Do It with Mirrors

Series 4 - Episode 4 They Do It with Mirrors



The glamorous Ruth Van Rydock contacts her old friend Jane Marple with a mystery - her sister Carrie Louise's study has been devastated by a suspicious fire. While Carrie Louise has the same cheerful outlook as ever, Ruth fears dark forces are at play at Stonygates, the home Carrie shares with her third husband, various relatives and a motley crew of young criminals, the latest subject of Carrie's philanthropic endeavours. But on the evening before a theatrical show is staged for their guests, one of whom is Miss Marple, an even more fascinating performance takes place before their very eyes - one where the final act is murder. Julia McKenzie stars, with guest appearances from Joan Collins, Penelope Wilton, Brian Cox, Maxine Peake, Alexei Sayle, Sarah Smart, Ian Ogilvy, Sean Hughes and Nigel Terry.
