List of Characters (as described in the script):-

Miss Letitia Blacklock – “Beyond middle age but still a very attractive woman who has clearly looked after her figure and features”. It is her house in which the action takes place.

Julia Simmons – Miss Blacklock’s niece, aged 25 or 26.

Dora Bunner (“Bunny”) – Slightly older than Miss Blacklock. Tends to get confused and is a little eccentric.

Patrick Simmons – Julia’s brother, a year older than Julia and “a very handsome young man”.

Mitzi – Miss Blacklock’s cook. “About 25 or 26, small and dark, a mid-European (Hungarian?). An explosive character, tends to believe that everyone is against her.

Miss Marple – an elderly lady with an over-inquisitive mind which gets her into all sorts of trouble!

Phillipa Haymes – “a tall, rather elegant-looking blonde of about 26 with a touch of real class about her – a young lady with a rather serious turn of mind”. She lodges with Miss Blacklock.

Mrs Swettenham – Miss Blacklock’s neighbour, a woman in her late 50’s.

Edmund Swettenham – her son, 26 or 27, a serious young man with pretensions of being a writer. “Dark, somewhat foreign-looking though he is in fact very English.”

Rudi Scherz – a young Swiss national. Doesn’t last long!

Inspector Craddock – a man of about 50, leading the investigation.

Sergeant Mellors – his sidekick.
