Synopsis


Season two of Murder, She Wrote gets off to a rousing start as widowed mystery novelist Jessica Fletcher (Angela Lansbury) confronts a genuine murder while vacationing in the Caribbean; she also makes her first acquaintance with secret agent Michael Hagarty, played by Len Cariou (with whom Lansbury previously co-starred in the Broadway musical Sweeney Todd). In the season's second episode, William Windom makes his first appearance as Dr. Seth Hazlett, cantankerous general practitioner of Jessica's home town, Cabot Cove. Among the season's guest stars is Lloyd Nolan, making his last-ever TV appearance as a suspect in "Murder in the Afternoon." Also showing up as various victims, suspects, and killers are the likes of Polly Bergen, Patrick Macnee, Ann Blyth, John Astin, Jayne Meadows, Orson Bean, Van Johnson, and Stuart Whitman. In addition, Jerry Orbach makes his earliest appearance in the role of woebegone private eye Harry McGraw, a role he'd later parlay into his own starring series. Arguably the season's most delightful episode is the London-based "Sing a Song of Murder," in which Angela Lansbury essays the dual role of Jessica Fletcher and Jessica's British musical-comedy star cousin Emma. Movie buffs will get a kick out of Lansbury's spirited rendition of "Little Yellow Bird," the song she so memorably performed in the 1945 theatrical feature The Picture of Dorian Gray.

    There's a good reason this TV show aired for more than 10 years and runs continuously in syndication. The combination of an interesting series premise (mystery author solves real mysteries), a wide range of guest stars, and consistently good mystery plots has proven to be irresistible. The only downside is that Jessica (our heroine) has an impossible-to-believe number of relatives. A genealogist might find it an interesting project to build Jessica's family tree based on all the relatives that appeared over the life of the series.

    I was a big fan of Murder She wrote and was sad to see it go from CBS. I hope that the rest of the series will be out on DVD soon if not already.

    Fun to watch some of the older shows. They tried to make you think, even if some of the plots were a little corny.
