(4.7 stars; 105 reviews)

Agatha Christie   The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side From the book first published in 1962   Dramatised by Michael Bakewell. Lines from Tennyson's poem The Lady of Shalott form a vital clue to a murder. After her husband died, Dolly Bantry sold Gossington Hall to ex-film star Marina Gregg and her husband. When the glamorous couple throw a benefit for the local hospital, the grounds are thronged with curious visitors, but for one of them, the day ends in tragedy. It is up to sharp-witted sleuth Miss Marple to discover who was really meant to take the poison that killed the poor victim... Director Enyd Williams Agatha Christie Special: BBC Radio 4 Sat 29th Aug 1998 15:00 on BBC Radio 4 FM With:  Ian Lavender as Chief Inspector Craddock, Gayle Hunnicutt as Marina Gregg, James Laurenson as Jason Rudd, Pauline Jameson as Dolly Bantry, Jane Whittenshaw as Cherry, Liz Goulding as Ella Zielinsky, John Hartley as Dr Gilchrist, Saverio Deodato as Giuseppe, Suzy Aitchison as Miss Knight, Jilly Bond as Heather Badcock, David Timson as Arthur Badcock/Vicar, Nigel Anthony as Ardwyck Fenn, Joanna Monro as Lola Brewster, Sarah-Jane Holm as Margot Bence and David Antrobus as Inspector Cornish. One minute, silly Heather Badcock had been gabbling on at her movie idol, the glamorous Marina Gregg. The next, Heather suffered a massive seizure. But for whom was the deadly poison really intended? Marina’s frozen expression suggested she had witnessed something horrific. But, while others searched for material evidence, Jane Marple conducted a very different investigation – into human nature.
