Actor John Castle as Inspector Craddock

Inspector Dermot Eric Craddock, Detective-Inspector at Scotland Yard, is the godson of Sir Henry Clithering. He met Miss Marple in “A Murder is Announced” and solved the case with her help. Since then he shows up from time to time and works with the old lady together.

In the books he's decribed as a blond, good-looking man who's a good talker. He also shows some witty and sarcastic humour when he's with Miss Marple.

In “The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side” he tells Miss Marple about his mother who died when he was a young boy. He also remembers her death when he thinks about blueberry pancakes.

He is a Shakespeare enthusiast, and at a first glance he likened Phillipa Haymes to Rosalind from As You Like It. He himself had played Jaques in a performance of As You Like It for the Police Orphanage.

He had a great aunt Emma, who had told him that his nose twitched when he was about to tell a lie.
