Based on reputation everyone expects this mild mannered, retired, spinster school teacher to be a clever act, a brilliant ruse. But it’s not! With his tongue firmly in his cheek Heron Carvic has created a lovable character who inadvertently solves crimes while leaving chaos, fear and admiration in her wake. Phyllida Nash skillfully reads all the characters into life with their requisite accents and personalities, while brilliantly portraying the deadpan seriousness of Miss Seeton. Often laugh aloud funny, I can imagine Miss Seeton (with proper casting) adapted for the screen to become as well loved as David Suchet’s Hurcule Poirot.
What disappointed you about Miss Seeton Sings?
More violent than the other Miss Seeton’s I’ve read with a character being dismembered in the bath and distributed around Paris in suitcases – oh, and Miss Seeton unknowingly brings the victims forearm home inside a wedding present for young friends – and, the brief foray into a naked stage show Carvic takes Miss Seeton through degenerated this far-fetched tale right down into an unenjoyable farce for me.
Has Miss Seeton Sings turned you off from other books in this genre?
Have you listened to any of Phyllida Nash’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Phyllida Nash is an amazing narrator, as usual.
