Agatha Christie’s Marple: The Blue Geranium (2010)

Mary Pritchard a bullying, superstitious, hypochondriac miserly woman dies. Miss Marple the interfering old biddy just happens to be around when this happens and so witnesses all that unfolds. But is the right person condemned to death for the crime?

This was better than ‘The Secret of Chimneys’ but not by much. The irritating Miss Marple annoys the police and talks in metaphors. Characters are charmless and stupid beyond the call of duty, more people die and there’s a truly ridiculous climax.

A long drawn out revenge plot by unprincipled characters is revealed but the way in which Miss Marple reveals all is just ridiculous. This was okay.

Best Lines:
“If George Pritchard were to brain his wife with a hatchet, there’s no a soul in this village that wouldn’t acquit him.”

“You ruin every day of my life.”
