Matthew Macfadyen To Star In Miss Marple As Inspector Neele

According to Yahoo UK & Ireland TV News, Matthew Macfadyen has joined the all star cast of Miss Marple as Inspector Neele.

The new
Miss Marple will not be the most famous face on screen when she makes her eagerly-awaited debut in the super-sleuth's tweeds and comfortable brogues.

Julia McKenzie will be joined by a truly stellar cast as she debuts in her role as Britain's favourite spinster crimefighter.

Matthew McFadyen (Spooks, Pride & Prejudice), Rupert Graves (The Forsyte Saga, Charles II: The Power & The Passion) and Helen Baxendale (Cold Feet, Friends) will flesh out the cast.

There's also a role for ex EastEnder Wendy Richard and The Royle Family's Ralf Little.

A Pocket Full of Rye will see Mis Marple trying to solve her most compelling case yet.

Wealthy businessman Rex Fortescue (Kenneth Craham) collapses after his breakfast, poisoned by an extract from yew berries. A pocketful of rye is found in his jacket. Nobody seems too upset, as Rex was universally disliked as a tyrant, especially by his children.

Inspector Neele (McFadyen) is despatched to the house to investigate. Maid Gladys who was trained by Miss Marple, is acting strangely, and writes to her former employer for help. Yet the call for help has come too late: Rex's glamorous and cheating young wife also falls foul of the poisoner. And Gladys is found strangled, a peg on her nose.

The case appears to be echoing the children's rhyme 'Sing A Song of Sixpence'. The question is: who will be next?

Filming was said to have started at the end of last month (February).
