Miss Marple: The Mirror Crack’d From Side To Side (ITV-1 2011, Joanna Lumley)

Published

on

It’s a case of Hollywood invading the tranquility of the English countryside in The Mirror Crack’d From Side To Side when glamourous film star Marina Gregg moves into Gossington Hall with film director husband Jason Rudd, her PA Hailey Preston and Jason’s secretary Ella Blunt. When the couple decide to throw a major party little do they realise that murder is going to be one of it’s chief highlights.

Luckily Miss Marple is on hand when one of Marina’s biggest fans Heather Badcock drinks poisoned wine at the party, it soon becomes clear that Heather was not the intended target of the murderer and that Marina’s own life may be in grave danger.

A classic Marple novel gets a top notch treatment here, once again fabulous casting not least the brilliant Lindsay Duncan as film star Marina Gregg and it’s always good to see Martin Jarvis.

Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost

In Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost our intrepid hero pays a visit to the seaside when an accountant, Peter Harlow, calls him in over a cottage he has been left in a will. He has no idea why he has been left the cottage but since he has taken over ownership more than a few strange things have been happening.

Hazell stays at the cottage for a few days and manages to find no small amount of comfort when Harlow’s wife Stephanie turns up (Harlow himself is in New York). Although there is clearly something spooky going on it’s definitely man made and it doesn’t take Hazell too long to work it out.

The episode was a rare outing outside of London for the series, it was filmed in the East Anglian village of Walberswick and surrounds. Although all the interiors were filmed in studio of coure.
