One of the era’s most well-known television series was Miss Marple. In this article, we shall see Miss Marple filming locations. We will look at all the sites where the series has been shot. Based on Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple murder mystery books, the British television series Miss Marple is called Miss Marple. It ran from 1984 to 1992 with Joan Hickson as the lead character. All 12 of Miss Marple Christie’s original books have been dramatized. Most of the time the series was being produced, Joan Hickson, who played Miss Marple, was already 80.
The Body in the Library (1984) and The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side (1988) are the first five one-part episodes, five two-part episodes, and two three-part episodes; these were created from the adaptations of all 12 Miss Marple stories (1992). The adaptations mostly stick to the spirit of the sourcebooks. The films were primarily set in the 1950s, 1951, and between 1954 and 1959 for aesthetic reasons. Some episodes aired around Christmas because Hickson liked the concept of them running over the holiday season.
The beautiful filming of the series raises a lot of thoughts in viewers’ minds about where it is shot. Now, without further ado, let us check out Miss Marple’s filming locations.
