Specially broadcast to mark the 125th anniversary of Agatha Christie's birth, these brand new dramas are based on three of her best short stories.
Tape-Measure Murder: When Mrs Spenlow is murdered in St Mary Mead, the village gossips all agree that her husband must have killed her – until Miss Marple is called as an alibi....
The Case of the Perfect Maid: Miss Marple investigates the problem of a lady's maid who has been mysteriously sacked – while also helping her crime writer nephew Raymond West to cure his writer's block.
Sanctuary: Miss Marple and her god-daughter Bunch are horrified when they discover a dying man in the local church. Can Miss Marple deduce his identity – and his killer – from his last words?
First published in the collection Miss Marple's Final Cases, these three delightfully clever tales will keep you guessing till the end. Starring June Whitfield – reprising her role as Miss Marple for the first time since 2001 – they are dramatised for BBC Radio 4 by Joy Wilkinson.

Glad they have done another Marple dramatisation
Although June Whitfield's performance is more subdued in this dramatisation , we have to consider that these are indeed Miss Marple's final cases and she's not getting any younger ( both the character and the performer ) ! I always think of June Whitfield as Miss Marple in the BBC dramatisations , so I was very happy that she was able to do these Final Cases . My only complaint is the dramatisations were very short but then I went on to listen to Miss Marple's Final Cases as read by Joan Hickson and each story was quite short as well . Miss Marple is my favourite Agatha Christie character and I thought this dramatisation was terrific .

An entertaining collection of stories, well layed out and cleverly dramatized. All the voices were great. Only complaint is it was shorter than I expected.

Would you listen to Miss Marple's Final Cases again? Why?
Yes. I didn't know BBC planned to do any more of these books. I was so excited that June Whitfield is still Marple. Perfect!
Would you be willing to try another book from Agatha Christie? Why or why not?
I've listened to all of her works.
Which character – as performed by June Whitfield – was your favorite?
Any additional comments?
The stories themselves are quick and rather dull, but the beauty of radio plays and familiarity of June Whitfield made it worth the purchase.
