Publisher's Summary

A Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring June Whitfield as the deceptively mild Miss Marple with Ian Lavender, Joan Sims and Susannah Harker.

Elspeth McGillicuddy is down from Scotland for a holiday and boards the 4:50 train from Paddington station to visit her friend, Miss Marple.

During the journey, another train pulls alongside, and through the window Mrs McGillicuddy witnesses a tall, dark man strangling a blonde woman. She reports what she has seen, yet no one takes any notice. There is no report of any murder, no dead woman found on any train, and the police have no record of any persons reported missing that matches the description.

Only Miss Marple believes her account, and realising that the body must have been thrown off the train, with the help of maps and train timetables she pinpoints the exact spot where the body must be. With the help of her young friend Lucy Eyelesbarrow, she goes about the tricky task of uncovering a murder - and a cunning murderer.

    "Reasonable"

    Very short dramatisation of one of Agatha Christies greatest novels. Lots of well known voices on here, but it somehow just didn't quite live up to my expectations.

    "Its Marple - whats not to love"
    What made the experience of listening to 4.50 from Paddington (Dramatised) the most enjoyable?

    The clarity of plot, the excellent performances


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Miss Marple -


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    June Whitfield is a genius and should be made a dame!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely - its drama not just a story


    Any additional comments?

    I got this in one of the sales which made it a greater gem to enjoy. Considering the number of times you can now hear these works being performed on Radio 7 paying full price is a bit over the top.
