Faced with two false confessions and numerous suspects after a despised civil magistrate is found shot in the local vicarage, Detective Inspector Slack reluctantly accepts help from Miss Marple.
French title: L'affaire Protheroe.
Detective Sergeant Lake:
Oh, yes, and she thinks she heard the murderer in the shrubbery. Reckon she heard him sneeze.
Detective Inspector Slack: So all we have to do is find someone with a snotty handkerchief!
"To everything there is a season" is from Ecclesiastes, not Proverbs.
Robert Lang (Colonel Lucius Protheroe) was omitted from the closing credits even though his name appeared in the opening titles and he played a significant role in the opening scenes before his character was murdered.
