These four lavish productions are all-new adaptations of Christie classics and feature Geraldine McEwan starring in: The Murder at the Vicarage, The Body in the Library, A Murder is Announced, and 4:50 From Paddington.
Geraldine McEwan (Mapp & Lucia) is Christie¿s spinster sleuth - proper, demure, and sharp as a tack - in sparkling new adaptations of four classic novels: The Murder at the Vicarage, The Body in the Library, A Murder Is Announced, and 4:50 From Paddington. These 21st-century productions are rich in post-WWII period atmosphere; the stellar casts include Joanna Lumley (Ab Fab), Derek Jacobi (Cadfael), and Tara Fitzgerald (Brassed Off!).
