||Synopsis: A young woman's corpse is dumped in the library of Gossington Hall, home of Jane Marple's friend Dolly Bantry and her husband Arthur. Pompous Chief Constable Melchett suspects a connection with Basil Blake, an arty young man who lives locally but Blake is dismissive when Melchett visits him. Then Superintendent Harper rings from the coastal town of Danemouth. Ruby Keane, a young girl employed as a dancer at the Majestic Hotel there, has gone missing, and her cousin Josie Turner identifies the corpse as Ruby's. Ruby is in favour with millionaire Conway Jefferson, whose own son and daughter were killed in a wartime air raid, and he wants to adopt her. His son-in-law Mark Gaskell, and daughter-in-law Adelaide react variously to the news. Miss Marple is convinced that the solution to Ruby's murder may be found at the hotel and she and Dolly book into a suite to investigate. There is no shortage of suspects, not only family members but the handsome Raymond Starr, another of the hotel's ... Written by don @ minifie-1

Watch The Body in the Library - Alternative Versions.
In theory there is nothing wrong with revisiting classic Christie
stories and characters - Poirot has been essayed a number of times
(Finney, Ustinov, Suchet), and over the years we've had various spins
on Miss Marple, ranging from Margaret Rutherford in the early 1960's to
June Whitfield on BBC Radio.
However, after the BBC's quite brilliant series from the 1980's, in
which Joan Hickson used economy and subtlety to create a brilliant
Marple, what more could be added? This new interpretation, with McEwan
taking up the baton, fails where Hickson's succeeded. One of the joys
of the BBC series was the ensemble work within each show, the
characterisations and restraint displayed by each cast member, and
Hickson being well served by each script. 2004's The Body In The
Library is alive with theatrical over-acting of the worst kind, and all
the 'star' turns (Callow, Davenport, Walliams, sadly even Lumley)
simply bury McEwan's plain Jane under a thick layer of over-playing.
Too often British actors confuse the crafts of stage and film acting,
so here we have moods, thoughts and reactions being telegraphed rather
This latest version really offers nothing new, other than the 'twist'
at the end... and let's just say that pedals a movie stereotype I
thought we'd finally moved away from.
I suspect Hickson's Marple would have viewed this whole sorry
enterprise and said 'yes, well... all rather tawdry, don't you think?'.
