And The Killer Is...

SOME PEOPLE ARE
ACTUALLY LOOKING
FORWARD TO LAZING
IN THE SUN, SPLASHING
IN TUMBLING WAVES
THIS SUMMER.
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
"MASTERPIECE MYSTERY".
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.....

You're after my own heart, Lyn. I'd far rather be holed up with a good Brit detective, than splashing about with the "evil under the sun".

Morse forever!

P.S. (I see you have a "Cracker" post I need to check out too. Oh goody!)

oh Lyn, wonderful - I'm always so out of the loop and never know what is good on TV, so this is a wonderful list - I will make note and I love that most of them are of a certain age that I identify with! perfect!

Lyn said...

Hi Kat-
"Evil under the sun"..pretty great... The number of fans is legion..guess that's why they bring them back!

Lyn said...

Hi Jeane-
That certain age keeps changing..darn it! I can't help myself when it comes to film and TV movies..always been that way!

Derrick said...

Hi Lyn,

Looks like you're gonna be holed up for quite some time! Suchet is good as Poirot. Prissy, frustrating but good! Joan Hickson was excellent as Miss Marple. I didn't really like McKewan and I hadn't heard about Julia McKenzie taking over(!), it will be interesting to see her interpretation. Lewis is enjoyable and the partnership with his sidekick is good; a reversal of the relationship he had with Morse. You will be the best sleuth in town!

Lyn said...

Hi Derrick-
Very good analysis! I will be good as long as they provide the clues! Brit detectives,and I'm happy, as you can tell!!

willow said...

Yippee! I'm so with you on this!
I'm also looking forward to the return of "History Dectectives".

I adore David Suchet in the role of Poirot!! Yes, he was born for this character. He's absolutely delightful.

Lyn said...

Hi Willow-
I love the details of these shows, the interiors, the clothing
..perfect..more than just mysteries...glued to our sets!!
Thank you...

You took me back some decades, Lyn. I used to be a fan of Agatha Christie's novels when I was much younger. And I have caught this Poirot on telly sometimes. Yes, you're right, David Suchet=Poirot. Many thanks.

Greetings from London.

Lyn said...

Greetings to A Cuban-
I also read the novels when I was younger..
one of the things I like in the films is the stylized look, the visual details..can I solve this?
Thank you!!
