Feature-length episode. An unusual advertisement appears in Chipping Cleghorn's local gazette, purporting to reveal details of a forthcoming murder, including the date, time and venue. It appears to be a morbid practical joke, but proves shockingly accurate. Puzzled by the mystery, and with more suspects than he can shake a stick at, Inspector Craddock quickly enlists Miss Marple's help in solving the crime. Joan Hickson stars.
