A lavish weekend party sees Miss Marple accompany Lady Virginia Revel (Charlotte Salt) to her family home of Chimneys, a house which was once prized for its diplomatic gatherings until a rare diamond was stolen from the premises over twenty years ago. 

Virginia must decide by the end of the weekend whether to accept a marriage proposal from the tenacious career politician George Lomax (Adam Godley) or to follow her heart and the courtship of another more adventurous suitor, Anthony Cade (Jonas Armstrong).

Agatha Christie’s Marple

Another chance to see this typically star-studded episode, The Secret of Chimneys, which was first shown on ITV in 2010.

Miss Marple was no doubt picturing a relaxing weekend with tea and cake when Lady Virginia – daughter of her late cousin – invited her to stay at her family home, a country estate called Chimneys.

But the sleuth doesn’t get a break even at family gatherings as she’s soon unravelling a case of murder, blackmail and a stolen diamond!

Julia McKenzie puts in a perfect performance as Miss Marple, and watch out for some solid guest turns from Edward Fox, Dervla Kirwan, Ruth Jones and Mathew Horne.
