There are fewer things more comforting than settling down to a good Agatha Christie mystery at the end of a long day so it was to my great delight when ITV finally started doling out new episodes of both Miss Marple and Poirot last month. And since I just bought a fancy new TV, it has been an even greater treat to see the wonderful costumes and interior sets in their full hi-def glory. So far, only two episodes of the new Miss Marple series have aired - Greenshaw's Folly and A Caribbean Mystery, the latter which has previously twice been adapted for the screen. I'm also choosing to do a recap of it here because the new production is absolutely gorgeous in the visual sense and it would be remiss of me not to share the beautiful images with y'all!

This time around, we accompany Miss Marple (Julie McKenzie) on a long deserved holiday in a far-off tropical paradise. But no matter where she goes, interesting events are bound to follow and once again we find ourselves embroiled in a murder mystery involving the guests of the small island B&B at which Miss Marple is lodging. An old garrulous Major is killed, the young resort owner is plagued with ghastly visions, and whispers of voodoo and intrigue waft in and out like a cool breeze in the night.
