A new face takes on the role of Agatha Christie's familiar spinster sleuth in series IV of Miss Marple. Julia McKenzie, best known to Masterpiece audiences for her portrayal of Mrs. Forrester in the acclaimed series Cranford, brings her distinctive style to the role. "I think Julia is a very different character than the other actresses who played Miss Marple recently, and more different than people who played her a long time ago," says Christie's grandson Mathew Prichard. "...I think audiences will love her." A killer cast joins in to celebrate McKenzie's inaugural season, including Matthew Macfadyen (Little Dorrit), Benedict Cumberbatch (The Last Enemy), Rupert Graves (The Forsyte Saga), Russell Tovey (Little Dorrit) and Joan Collins.
