Airing June 27, 2010 on PBS   Check local listings

Mary Pritchard, disliked even by the village reverend, is panicked that she is about to die, and a visit by a veiled fortune teller only fuels more paranoia about her fate. But when the wealthy Pritchard is actually found dead, reportedly from the shock of seeing the pink geranium in her wallpaper turn blue, the tension and accusations in Pritchard's small village blossom wildly. Is it possible that Pritchard was scared to death? Miss Marple, in town visiting an old friend, mingles with the villagers, uncovering any number of people who share in the hatred for Pritchard and also harbor their own deadly sins. More deaths occur in short order, leading Miss Marple into a tangled case rooted in desire, deception and greed. Based on a short story by Agatha Christie, The Blue Geranium stars Julia McKenzie as Miss Marple and features Sharon Small (The Inspector Lynley Mysteries) and Toby Stephens (Jane Eyre). (One episode; 90 minutes; TV-PG)
