Agatha Christie Wiki

4.50 from Paddington  is the fourth of a series of radio plays starring June Whitfield as Miss Marple. It was first broadcast by BBC Radio 4 in 1997 and is an adaptation of the Agatha Christie novel of the same name.


Miss Marple's friend Mrs McGillicuddy arrives for a visit to St. Mary Mead claiming she's just witnessed a murder during her rail journey from London.

On another train running alongside her carriage, she explains how a blind flew up revealing a man slowly strangling a woman – until she slumped down. But next day, when there are no newspaper reports of a corpse, the spinster sleuth sets about her own murder investigation.
