Miss Marple's Side-kick

If Agatha Christie had given Miss Marple a Permanent or Occasional Side-Kick who should it have Been? Dolly? Miss Dane Calthorp? Cherry, Bunch? Grizelda or Lucy? If she had been in Death On The Nile I would have liked to see Dolly Accompany her or Cherry and maybe Evil Under The Sun too.

    I think it would be Dolly. She and Miss Marple are great together.

    Yes, they are.

    Dolly is smart and could have good hunches. Besides, she's talkative (at least, I think) and could get a lot of information.

    I agree Tudes

    I saw Lucy as a one-time Watson - I would have liked to see more of Elspeth McGillicuddy, though, who sounds a very interesting and memorable character - at least, from her descripition in 4.50 from Paddington.
  • I vote for Dolly. While Lucy is clever and active, Dolly is more of a companion to Miss Marple, and sets her off - even their differences are interesting - MM much more clear-headed, but Dolly supplying common sense and knowledge of the people involved.
