Too little of good thing

I love these dramatised adaptations that bring ACs books to life. These are spectacularly done but too short!

Would love to have them longer because that is how good they are!

Great BBC radio productions

June Whitfield is wonderful and the rest of the cast is terrific. Yes, these stories are abridged but faithful to Ms. Christie. The only negative for me is that inspector Slack is always David Horvitch.

Always a treat to hear her books

Alls I can say is. I. Love. Miss. Marple. Agatha Christie had to be one of my favorite authors of all times. Hey boss were before their time in my opinion. I'll read a Agatha Christie book before a lot of these others out here.

A wonderful performance

For fans of mystery and a time period when people were more civilized, more well read.

BBC Quality Play

All these stories and plays, are well known and enjoyable.
June Whitfield and other cast members were excellent.
A bit like going back to an earlier era, when we’d all huddle around the Radio.
Took me back a few years.
