The Secret of Chimneys sees the redoubtable Miss Jane Marple attending a party at Chimneys, the country estate of Lord Caterham, which since a famous jewel theft 20 years before has fallen out of favour.
One of the guests Count Ludwig expresses a major interest in buying Chimneys but he is later found murdered, all evidence points to Anthony Cade, the suitor of Lord Caterham’s daughter Virginia but Miss Marple quickly realises that things are not so clear cut as that.
Once again it is the fab production design and all star cast that makes this Marple special. Jonas Armstrong, fresh from Robin Hood has a major role as does the gorgeous Charlotte Salt (from Born and Bred and The Tudors) as well as bigger names like Edward Fox, Matthew Horne and Dervla Kirwan.
