Nicely done, but liberties taken with the stories. Mostly true to the text especially in regards to victims and villians. Enjoyable to watch, but if you're a loyal reader of Christie, you might find yourself puzzled at times and saying, "I don't remember that!"

I absolutely adore anything by Agatha Christie and Miss Marple is my favorite. This series has added a new dimension. I am a British citizen who is a permanent resident in the U.S. I lived in Eastbourne as a child and love to see the scenery of the south coast again. The clothes of the fifties are gorgeous. And Miss Marple played by Geraldine McEwan is a delight. I am looking forward to ordering the next set in this series.

Best Miss Marple!

Geraldine McEwan is the best Miss Marple. She is delightful in the role and I think of when I remember Miss Marple from Agatha Christie's books and her description of the character, she is perfect.

I am an avid fan of Agatha Christie's works ... I was very pleased to find this series on Netflix and decided to watch ... Although the the episodes did vary somewhat from the actual books about Miss Marple, they did retain the essence which I accepted ... It was sort of an "update" to a more contemporary "setting" so-to-speak ... I am completely satisfied with the series ... Geraldine McEwan did a super job in portraying Miss Marple ... A completely satisfied customer ... Larry in L.A.

Already had this set of Marple so gave this one to my brother as a late Christmas present. I told him if he like to read Martha Grimes, he would like Miss Marple. My favorites are "4:10 to Paddington" and "Murder at the Vicarage". I have several versions of those two and these are two of my favorites.

I love Agatha Christie and I do really like Geraldine Mcewan playing Miss Marple; however, I do wish some of the characters had not been combined for the shows; for instance, in "A Murder is Announced" Bunch and Amy Murgatroyd's characters are combined. I did really enjoy the show, but not nearly as much as the book. My children do enjoy the shows as well (11 and 3 years old).

We had always been big fans of David Suchet's Hercule Poirot, but had never seen much of Miss Marple before we watched this version with Geraldine McEwan, and we were very impressed! She makes a wonderful Miss Marple, and the guest stars are impressive, too: the always-funny & entertaining Joanna Lumley (of "Ab Fab" fame, among other things), Simon Callow, David Warner, etc. Beautiful production values, as always-- lovely sets & period costumes! Highly recommended for Agatha Christie fans or just aficionados of period British mysteries in general!
