Masterpiece Mystery! Miss Marple: A Pocket Full of Rye

Airs Sunday, June 16, 2013 at 10:30 p.m. on KPBS TV

Above: Matthew Macfadyen as Inspector Neele

When Miss Marple learns of the deaths of businessman Rex Fortescue, his young wife, Adele, and their housemaid, Gladys, the circumstances vividly recall the nursery rhyme "Sing a Song of Sixpence." Since Miss Marple had trained Gladys herself, she has a personal reason to investigate. Will her reasoning and deduction make sense of the rhyme and at last reveal the culprit? As the murders pile up, Marple discovers a motive as dark as blackbirds.

Julia McKenzie makes her debut as Miss Marple along with a strong supporting cast (Rupert Graves, "The Forsyte Saga"; Hattie Morahan, "Sense and Sensibility") in this adaptation of Agatha Christie's "A Pocket Full of Rye."

This program originally aired in 2009.
