| Definitive Marple actress
I have been watching on TV the 1984 version of Miss Marple.

This one is with Joan Hickson in the eponymous role.

What a delight having been subjected to the unsuited Geraldine McEwan version (2004) series in recent times.

The difference between the two is so marked as to be astonishing.

Maybe you should watch both just to see how good Joan Hickson is.

So if you are an aspiring actress do compare and contrast.

Poor Geraldine McEwan, how could you follow what is a definitive portrayal ?

So if you like Christie and Marple - Joan Hickson is number one and second is some far distant even broad daylight. I'd say Geraldine McEwan was in the rear of the pack myself.
