Spinster sleuth Jane Marple's stay in London proves more eventful than planned. Agatha Christie whodunit with June Whitfield.
Deceptively mild amateur sleuth, Jane Marple is being treated to a short holiday in London by her niece. Staying at the dignified, unostentatious Bertram's Hotel, tucked away in a back street of busy Mayfair - here guests can indulge in comforts of a bygone age.
But Miss Marple begins to feel uneasy. Something sinister lurks beneath the polished veneer. Why are so many major crimes associated in some way with the hotel or somehow implicate the eminently respectable people staying there?
Agatha Christie's whodunit stars June Whitfield as Miss Marple, Sian Phillips as Bess Sedgwick, Maurice Denham as Canon Pennyfather, Jillie Meers as Miss Gorringe, John Hartley as Michael Gorman, Geoffrey Whitehead as Mr Humfries and Geoffrey Bayldon as Colonel Luscombe.
