Description

A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring June Whitfield as Miss Marple, the sharp-witted spinster sleuth.

In the sleepy little English country village of St Mary Mead, all is not as it seems. Under a seemingly peaceful exterior lurks intrigue, guilt, deception - and murder.

Colonel Protheroe, local magistrate and overbearing landowner, is the most detested man in the village. Everyone, even the vicar, wishes he were dead. And very soon he is - shot in the head in the vicar's own study.

A visiting artist confesses to the murder, but residents saw him elsewhere at the time the Colonel was shot. If he didn't do it, who did? Is he protecting the wife whom he loves? Faced with a surfeit of suspects, only the inscrutable Miss Marple can unravel the tangled web of clues. A trap set, and Miss Marple's theory is put to the test when the true killer is finally unmasked.

Love These Dramatisations

What did you like best about this story?

Sometimes I don't have enough time to sit and listen to an audiobook over a few days - but these short dramatisations are a great way to engage with Agatha Christies flawless masterpieces.

What does June Whitfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

When she speaks she just is Jane Marple. Its perfect!

Any additional comments?

Murder at the Vicarage will always be my no 1 Miss Marple story and this was just as good as the novel.

Not This One

Any additional comments?

I absolutely adore most of the Agatha Christie dramatizations, and every other one with June Whitfield has been perfect. This one is kind of terrible. Griselda is a whiny idiot, and it is SO FAR from how she is written, it's crazy. I don't really like any of the voice actors, and this is one of the radio programs that suffers from a needless overload of sighs, gasps, umms, throat clearings and other noises filling up what might be a milisecond of dead air. It's okay to have a natural pause, you know, like how actual humans speak and converse?

Murder at the Vicarage is a fantastic Christie novel. This production is bad. Skip it.

Very Well Done!

I spend a lot of time traveling and these stories often keep me company and makes the drive not so long and tedious. There is a whole line of Agatha Christie books that have been dramatized and they are very well done. Not just actors reading lines. These are professionally dramatized with background noises and all. Can't wait to get the rest of them. I will listen to them over and over.

Brilliant adaptation, Miss Marple brought to life

...as well as English village life. The intricacies of the plot were not at all diminished by the abbreviation.

The best way to listen to a Christie story

The BBC narrated books and plays are always on point. With this one you'd be transported to St Mary Mead and follow Miss Marple in a world of total englishness. If a fan of Agatha Christie it's a great way to enjoy her books in a different format.

Wish there were more like Mrs. Marple today

I would rather sit and enjoy this book than anything written in this decade. I listen to these written words over and over, not even noticing the repetition. Love it.

Entertaining and engaging reading!

Awesome book with a fantastic cast reading it. Miss Marple is a sly, astute, aclectic woman of surprising means.

Another Excellent Dramatization by the BBC Radio

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, all of the BBC Radio dramatizations of Agatha Christie's novels have been superb. The combination of a full-cast audience, sound effects and music is irresistible. June Whitfield does an excellent job as Miss Marple. Murder at the Vicarage is the first book featuring Miss Marple center stage.

What about June Whitfield’s performance did you like?

She has a pleasant voice and created a believable character for Miss Marple. Everyone in the cast gave a wonderful performance. I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook.
