Miss Marple: Nemesis (1987)
If you have heart... you will love this one.
I give this a 10 out of 10, not because the plot was hard to uncover because it wasn't... but because it leaves one caring for the characters. The acting, by all the cast, is superb, especially Joan Hickson, and it's a marvellous episode because of it's heart.
Miss Marple is called upon by Jason Rafiel's dying request to investigate, and solve, a murder that happened some seven or eight years previously, and she has to discover who, why and when as she goes along. Mr Rafiel is the same Rafiel as was in A Caribbean Mystery and so there is a sense of a connection here.
Nemesis is definitely one for the amateur psychologists among us, and if you are one of those who is only happy with lots of blood, guts and rip-roaring action sequences, then you won't like it. But if you are like me, one who loves knowing about PEOPLE and discovering what makes them tick, then Nemesis is the one for you.
INHERITANCE - Fact and Fiction - A wonderful mix.
INHERITANCE was one of the first mini-series I ever saw. I enjoyed it very much and have wondered many times why it has not been repeated. It spanned several generations of two families - one a mill owning family and one the family and descendants of a weaver - and mixed real history with the fictional story of these two families and how they became entwined in a fascinating destiny. It not only starred James Bolam and John Thaw but the wonderful Michael Goodliffe who played one of the characters in later life in every episode. Thelma Whitely, another great actor, was in several episodes and added to the general excellence of the series. Wonderful adaptation of a great book.
