Agatha Christie's Marple is a British ITV television series based on the Miss Marple and other murder mystery novels by Agatha Christie. It is also known as Marple. The title character was played by Geraldine McEwan from the first to third series, until her retirement from the role. She was replaced by Julia McKenzie, from the fourth series onwards. The first six episodes were all adaptations of Miss Marple novels by Christie. Subsequent episodes were derived both from works featuring Miss Marple but also Christie novels that did not feature the character.

Future adaptationsEdit

It was originally announced that an adaptation of The Seven Dials Mystery would be filmed, but it was shelved in favour of Greenshaw's Folly. The adaptation of Greenshaw's Folly will be based on both Greenshaw's Folly and The Thumb Mark of St. Peter.Julia McKenzie was contracted to play Miss Marple for three series, so it is expected that this set of films will be the last.
