Summary

A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring June Whitfield as Miss Marple, the sharp-witted spinster sleuth.
In the sleepy little English country village of St Mary Mead, all is not as it seems. Under a seemingly peaceful exterior lurks intrigue, guilt, deception - and murder.
Colonel Protheroe, local magistrate and overbearing landowner, is the most detested man in the village. Everyone, even the vicar, wishes he were dead. And very soon he is - shot in the head in the vicar's own study.
A visiting artist confesses to the murder, but residents saw him elsewhere at the time the Colonel was shot. If he didn't do it, who did? Is he protecting the wife whom he loves? Faced with a surfeit of suspects, only the inscrutable Miss Marple can unravel the tangled web of clues. A trap set, and Miss Marple's theory is put to the test when the true killer is finally unmasked.

Absolutely Classic Agatha Christie

I adore Murder at The Vicarage it is true classic Christie in every way.
Murder fun & mystery rolled in one.

Miss Marple is at her best as the nosey old sleuth who gets it right
every time. So much going on in this production to pin to one scene.
It is all true delight. A full cast & excellent soundtrack to take you on the Agatha mystery tour.

I enjoy these audio full cast

Superb dramatisation

I Thoroughly enjoyed this dramatisation of dear Agathas earlier novel. The actors do justice to the complexity of the characters and depth of plot.

Fantastic for boring car journeys- kids loved it not too gory!!

Enjoy !

Love These Dramatisations

What did you like best about this story?

Sometimes I don't have enough time to sit and listen to an audiobook over a few days - but these short dramatisations are a great way to engage with Agatha Christies flawless masterpieces.

What does June Whitfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

When she speaks she just is Jane Marple. Its perfect!

Any additional comments?

Murder at the Vicarage will always be my no 1 Miss Marple story and this was just as good as the novel.

Entertaining and engaging reading!

Awesome book with a fantastic cast reading it. Miss Marple is a sly, astute, aclectic woman of surprising means.
