The Mirror Crack'd From Side to Side (2010)
Another ho-hum Miss Marple mystery. None of the recent Marple mysteries have been particularly outstanding, but I did really prefer Geraldine McEwan's performance to Julia MacKenzie's. This episode is not terrible, mainly because it's based on a good book with a solid plot.
What I liked: Joanna Lumley as Miss Marple's friend and Hugh Bonneville as a detective.
What I didn't like: Miss Marple crying at the tear-jerker in the cinema in the first scene. Shouldn't have bothered me too much but I just can't picture Miss Marple getting weepy over a bad Hollywood film.
