Mark Gatiss in Agatha Christie's Marple

Recommended Posts

Afraid I'm not quite following you, Bev.  I do see that MG was in the 2004 Marple episode "Murder at the Vicarage," but what upcoming production has him as a vicar again?

Yes, that Marple episode was he first in the series and it’s a very good one.  One of the best.  Geri is my favorite Miss Marple and I often revisit her episodes.  My most favorite is 4:50 to Paddington which I rewatch every Christmas season.  Mark also appeared as a tortured vicar in the Sword of Guillame episode of Midsomer Murders several years later.

While Bamber Gascoigne of Starter for 10 is droll, Mycroft Holmes remains his greatest acting achievement.  Mycroft is possibly my favorite character in the series, probably because I am an eldest with annoying younger siblings too, and if I can say it without sounding like an egotistical arse, the smartest in my family. I don’t think they would dispute me.  Mycroft’s scenes were a highlight and too brief to suit me.  I love Deductions from The  Empty Hearse.  “Tea at the Palace” from Belgravia is his shining moment, though.  Mycroft takes his duties as the eldest seriously and he is always looking out for his frustrating little brother. I love him. And I love the fandom explorations of his secret torrid affair with the hot Inspector Lestrade, ship name: Mystrade, Even though it makes no logical sense. The two characters have zero screen time together though they are definitely aware of each other, and Lestrade is my own lust object, the extremely hetero Rupert Graves.  And all the ladies say amen!
