In the novel A Murder is Announced, Tiglath Pileser is the cat at the Vicarage in Chipping Cleghorn. His actions provide Miss Marple with important clues.


  • In the 1985 BBC adaptation, starring Joan Hickson, the cat was renamed Delilah. Mrs Harmon says that her husband, named the cat Delilah. She jokes about worrying that the cat's moral standards will turn out to be the same as her namesake in the Bible.
  • In the 2005 ITV adaptation, starring Geraldine McEwan, the Harmon family is not featured and so neither is the cat.
