@ChristieFanForLife Sounds horrifying. Sarah Phelps, the writer, literally admits that all these changes were intentional to match the views of modern audiences, and absolutely knows nothing of Christie at all.
I find Geraldine McKewan's Portrayal too Hammy for me and Julia McKenzie's too Nosey in an obvious way, No Actress is absolutely as the Books describe her but there is nothing about the ITV Miss Marples which was right although some were Nice to watch, My Favourite was Joan Hickson but On Radio June Whitfield was perfect.
I have to say I liked Joan Hickson as Miss Marple, but not as much as much as Geraldine McEwan. She did not have the lovable warmth that the others had and the BBC TV series was a little turgid compared to the ones that Margaret Rutherford, Geraldine McEwan and Julia McKenzie were in. There has been so much hype about Joan Hickson being the best Muss Marple, that I must now upset the apple cart, whilst putting the record straight at the same time. I believe Geraldine McEwan was the best Miss Marple and the series was excellent.
