With a gentle smile and a probing mind, Agatha Christie's Miss Marple often finds herself at the center of trouble — a witness to betrayals, poisonings and all manner of mayhem. Knitting needles in hand and a cup of tea always at the ready, Marple quietly earns confidence while uncovering secrets and exposing killers.
In Series VI, premiering in the summer of 2011 on Masterpiece mystery!, Miss Marple returns in an all-new case. In The Pale Horse, Miss Marple seeks justice, armed with little more than a mysterious list of names sent by an old friend only moments before he was murdered. JJ Feild (Northanger Abbey) guest stars.
Also, don't miss an encore presentation of Series V's The Secret of Chimneys (May 29, limited TV airings. Check local listings), in which a decades-old murder may be connected to a mysterious diamond theft. Stephen Dillane (God on Trial) guest stars.
"There are dark forces at work here, Inspector. They must be forced into the light."
