The actress did it

Just so’s you know, Julia McKenzie is brilliant in the latest Miss Marple. After a succession of wimpy, simpering, blue-rinsed failures, at last we have someone whose every expression suggests dangerous cleverness (if you’re the one what dunnit), huge human sympathy and zero over-acting. And she reminds me of my Granny. Which, oddly, none of them have done before.

And Matthew McFadden’s ‘I think I’m following you, Jane, but just run that one by me again’ expression, even under the moustache, was a joy to behold.

Bed now, but ITV3 are on safe ground here. A future classic in the making. Hooray!
