Agatha Christie’s Marple: The Murder at the Vicarage, ITV1

by | Dec 19, 2004 | All, Reviews

Who were the Top 10 star turns?

1 Siobhan Hayes as chippy Cockney maid Mary. Asked the name of the soup, she told the Colonel’s guests: “It’s odds and sods and bits and bobs.”

2 Angela Pleasence as gaga gossip Miss Hartnoll (played as if she was in The League Of Gentlemen). The vicar’s wife was tipsy at the jumble sale, we hear.

3 Jane Asher in the Joanna Lumley role (ie frightfully wordly and awfully classy)

4 Derek Jacobi as the bad-tempered Colonel Protheroe (we always love a crusty old chap with a faulty hearing aid)

5 Mark Gatiss as the anxious curate. “You can’t catch nerves. It’s a wretched affliction.”

6 Janet McAteer as the elegant wife of the colonel, mother of the budding Samantha Fox, lover of the racy artist and, as it transpired, the villain of the piece

7 Stephen Tompkinson as the permanently perplexed DI Slack

8 Julian Morris – just for being very cute

9 Miriam Margolyes as the troublesome Mrs Price-Ridley

10 Jason Flemyng as the smooth artist Lawrence Redding.
