And now it’s time for the Grand Final to decide the Best Miss Marple Novel Ever! Twelve novels fought together in the opening group stages, the quarter-finals and the semi-finals – and now it’s time for the final! And a bonus poll too!
So, first of all, the results of the semi-finals
SF1 – A Murder Is Announced vs 4:50 From Paddington
Was there any doubt? Really? Nearly 4:1 in favour of A Murder Is Announced – so it’s going forward to face…
SF2 – The Murder At The Vicarage vs The Moving Finger
Much, much closer – only two votes out of sixty two in it… and the winner is The Moving Finger! Despite coming second to the 4:50 From Paddington in the group stage (which I still don’t understand), it’s in the final.
So time to vote in the final. Two books enter – one book wins!
Bonus Miss Marple poll now. I didn’t bother with this for Poirot, as one performance dominates all of the others. But there are several memorable Miss Marples – so let’s see who’s your favourite?
While you muse over that, apparently the “young Miss Marple” idea is back on, being developed by CBS – apparently it’s about a crime-solving book-shop worker in California… So WTF call it Miss Marple? Oh dear…
OK, these polls will run until Tuesday 6pm-ish. The results of the Non-Series poll will be along later today…
