Angela Lansbury plays a former high school English teacher and mystery writer Jessica Fletcher. Her maternal instincts are strong, as are her wits for solving murders. Whether in her hometown of Cabot Cove, Maine, where sheriffs Tupper and Metzger help her out, or in her travels to New York City to visit her publisher, murder is never far away from Jessica Fletcher. She is a darling elderly sleuth similar to Miss Marple who always writes at night in bed.
Jessica Fletcher is an adorable sleuth, always stumbling upon murder cases.
Perhaps more famous than Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot is a former Belgian policeman who now works as a private eye in London. Assisted by his sidekick Captain Hastings, Poirot is a curious fellow with disarming tactics that almost unwittingly solve even the most complicated of cases.
