Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

This final entry in Margaret Rutherford's Miss Marple casebook is the only one not based on an Agatha Christie story. While David Pursall and Jack Seddon's original screenplay has all the basic characteristics of a Christie whodunnit, there are too many offbeat characters, a glut of inconsequential chat and more comedy (mostly for the benefit of an overcooked Lionel Jeffries) than you'd find in the great Dame's marvellous mysteries. Having said that, it's neatly staged and the solution is neither blatantly obvious nor buried under a mass of barely perceptible clues.
