Program Description

When Miss Marple stays at London's fashionable Bertram's Hotel, she enjoys the traditional decor, the impeccable service -- and the unmistakable atmosphere of danger lurking behind the highly-polished veneer. Many of her fellow guests are gathered for the reading of the will of Sir Richard Blake, the multi-millionaire who disappeared seven years previously.

Ably assisted by the hotel maid Jane and Inspector Bird, Miss Marple realizes that the truth behind Bertram's Hotel is darker than even she could have imagined -- especially when two of the staff are murdered.

At Bertram's Hotel also stars Martine McCutcheon (Love Actually), Vincent Regan (300, Troy, Inspector Lewis), Francesca Annis (Jane Eyre, Jericho, Wives and Daughters and Masterpiece Theatre's upcoming Cranford Chronicles), Polly Walker (Patriot Games, Rome) and Stephen Mangan (Lucky Jim).
