Marple news - 'Why Didn't They Ask Evans?'

From Digital Spy:
Veteran actor Richard Briers and Bottom's Rik Mayall are to join Julia McKenzie in the third instalment of the latest Agatha Christie's Marple series.

'Why Didn't They Ask Evans?' follows the mystery sparked when a dying man utters the words of the episode's title in his last moments. Penned by Patrick Barlow, the two-hour film sees Miss Marple on the hunt for clues once again.

Harry Potter stars Mark Williams (Arthur Weasley) and Sean Biggerstaff (Oliver Wood) also appear in the drama. They are joined by Rafe Spall (He Kills Coppers), Warren Clarke (Dalziel and Pascoe), Samantha Bond (James Bond) and Helen Lederer (Absolutely Fabulous).

Tudors star Natalie Dormer, Doctor Who's Georgia Moffett and Skins actress Hannah Murray complete the cast.

While I'm a big fan of Patrick Barlow's (I even have a blog dedicated to him called The Patrick Barlow Experience), I really wish the producers would stop taking Agatha Christie stories that don't have Miss Marple, and put Miss Marple in to them! Ridiculous! If you've used up all the Miss Marple stories, just come up with some brand new plots!
