The Reverend Julian Harmon is the vicar of Chipping Cleghorn. He is the husband of “Bunch”, a goddaughter of Jane Marple. Although he is in his thirties, he is described as "a model designed by Nature for the age of sixty". He was educated at Oxford (and not in Milchester), and is an intellectual man, with a fondness for detective stories.
In the BBC 1985 adaptation of the novel which formed part of the Miss Marple series, Reverend Harmon is played by David Collings. Like in the novel, he is fond of detective stories. He names the vicarage cat Delilah.
