Miss Marple sign now

To ITV, it's advertisers, Chorion, Mathew Prichard and the producers of the new Agatha Christie "Miss Marple" series. We, the undersigned, hereby state we will be boycotting The Body In The Library, and subsequent films in the new series, and will not be buying related DVDs or videos. We read with disgust that the latest adaptation has had the identity of one of the murderers changed, due to "the original plot would not resonate with a modern audience". Isn't this part of the reason why it is set in a period setting? Having evil lesbian killers is a homophobic idea that should have been left in the 1950s. We have put up with minor tampering with the plots for too long - characters in the two of the last Poirot films have suddenly become gay - but to change the identity of a killer is too much. We will boycott, and will only change our minds if the ending is refilmed to reflect the one in the book. We are true Agatha Christie fans and mean to be heard! Leave our beloved Miss Marple alone!

    Please stop molesting Christie's works. They are good enough to stand on their own two feet, and it is shameful that egotistical screenwriters believe it is "made better" through the changing, adding, and maligning of characters. We want the original Miss

    Do not change the story line! Stay pure to the author's story. I hated the changes made in "Cards on the Table" with Hercule Poirot. I was horribly disappointed and outraged at the end of the story. As an avid Poirot & Marple reader, I do not apprecia

    By all means release them but not with Agatha Christie's name. It's an insult as if you don't think the originals are interesting or clever enough and they ARE!
  • 18 September 2014126. Thomas T
    Its very rude to drop the Miss, and ITV just can't do Drama the way the BBC can.

    Beyond a disgrace. A sacrilege! Call me if there is anything more I can do. b.w.
