master of crime

Reliving the Agatha Christie novels is a great pleasure. I read all her books as a child and still have the complete collection. Now I can listen to them in the car as I drive my long drives.
Will always love her works :)

Fun retelling of classic who done its

A series of well done radio plays of a selection of Miss Marple mysteries. Well acted and engaging it was a fun way to experience the stories

The only issue was in one play a lot of the characters sounded similar so it was sometimes hard to tell who was who.

Overall though a very nice production.

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.

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.

Marvellous Marple!

Another excellent bunch of stories/plays which again has sated my Mrs Christie addiction. Excellent dramatisations with Miss Marple played by June Whitefield and an excellent cast supporting her. Nemesis has always been my favourite Christie book and I was 'fair chuffed' to see it was included in this set which also included some lesser known works by the author. Overall and excellent listen.

To listen to this I sat on my favourite comfy chair, grabbed a hot chocolate, shut the rain out and didn't move till I had heard them all! A perfect day :)

Love the stories - hate the adverts

I have no idea why this audiobook has 2 minute long adverts for this very product (as well as the Poirot audiobooks) between each story. I've tried to contact BBC studios directly about this - but there doesn't seem to be an easy channel for this feedback. Ruins what is an otherwise good set of dramatisations.

Ruined by adverts

I think it is ridiculous that, having paid for an audiobook, I then have to listen to a two minute advert - not just once, but repeated in between each individual play. Ruined an otherwise good audiobook.

Where is the original?

Excellent productions which really took me back to my childhood. It was fantastic to share these with my children who are now great fans too.

Confusingly though this is “More” which surely signifies that there is an original Marple Casebook? This however is nowhere to be found. Please Audible will you hurry up and get the rest on the site? Thanks
