SOME PEOPLE ARE
FORWARD TO LAZING
IN THE SUN, SPLASHING
IN TUMBLING WAVES
BUT I LOOK FORWARD
TO A DIM ROOM,
A CHILLY HUSH,
A CLICK OF THE "ON"
BUTTON ON THE TV,
AND THE RETURN,
AT LAST, OF
A bold move indeed to feature my
three favorite detectives. We also
serve, who stand and wait.
I've held my breath long enough,
and now, my reward....
June brings the return (PBS, June21) of "POIROT"
David Suchet returns in the first of two new
Hercule Poirot stories. Was he not born to play
this role? Great actors have portrayed Hercule, but
no one has elevated a brow with more panache.
In July, MISS MARPLE returns (PBS, July 5).
Julia McKenzie, (below) succeeds Geraldine McEwen,
who was quite sly and clever as Miss Marple,
and who succeeded the one and only
Joan Hickson, (above) as Agatha Christie's elderly
detective. Who could dither and solve great
mysteries as she? It remains to be seen if
Julia McKenzie fills the bill in four new installments.
But with Joan Collins appearing, surprises galore
may be in store!
Inspector Lewis bending over the deceased Inspector Morse.
Morse, played by the late, peerless John Thaw, will never be
replaced. I say so. But Lewis, played by Kevin Whately has
moved on to a series of his own. Heart and soul, plus the
analytical pulse that beat within Morse.
Morse and Lewis, reflected in Morse's red Jag.
INSPECTOR LEWIS, (PBS, August 30).
Four new episodes of the "Inspector Morse"
spin off, starring Kevin Whately, looking much
older, wiser, and worried. It has been said
to be better than "Morse". Just a whisper
campaigne. Do we have to go that far?
A mystery of my own.... The Blogging Mystery!
During the past week I've had great difficulty
getting my post to appear. Many pleas to help
are sent to Blogger, and voila..just as I'm giving
up, hours later...there it is. Will today be successful?
Holding my breath!!! Perhaps some of my fav
detectives will step forward with a solution.....
