Publisher's Summary

A blizzard has hit England. In the tiny village of Sittaford, on the fringes of Dartmoor, a party of six is gathered in Sittaford House, home of Captain Trevelyan. He has rented the house out for the winter and is staying in a nearby village.
As evening draws in, a seance is proposed. But it reveals more than they had anticipated - TREVELYAN DEAD, spells out the board. Slowly the table begins to rock again, spelling out the word M-U-R-D-E-R. Is it true? And who would kill a man who doesn’t have an enemy in the world?
John Moffatt and Stephen Tompkinson star in a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of a classic from the Queen of Crime.

These BBC Efforts Never Disappoint!

Look for this title to pop up on sale and grab it at discount! The cast does credit to small-town British evils, with even pacing and careful plot development. A murder occurs in wintry conditions, and possible culprits abound!

Death by Misadventure

Would you listen to The Sittaford Mystery (Dramatised) again? Why?

Yes. I have listened to it several times. It is a clever mystery.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sittaford Mystery (Dramatised)?

The table turning.

What about John Moffatt and Stephen Tompkinson ’s performance did you like?

All the voices were distinct and fit the characters. I could visualize the scenes.

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

Yes, every time.

Any additional comments?

Emily is a plucky heroine. I liked her interactions with the other characters. Good non-series short story.

Spooky and atmospheric, outstanding performances.

Excellent production of this story. The parts are played so well, and easily discernible from each other. One of those Christies stories that twists and turns and really gathers speed towards the end.

I really loved to sound effects, fire crackling, snowy sounds and crunching of feet in snow. Really creates a warm cosy feel or icy depending on scene. Music is used occasionally to add to the mood and atmosphere.

Parts are actually really scary! But then I don't want to spoil the story...

Loved it! Perfect for dog walking and ironing!

Great for a winter's evening

The usual Agatha Chrisite - easy to listen to, excellent characters - just right! The BBC radio collection are well worth space on the shelf.
