|Ngaio Marsh 193?|
We can't forget Albert Campion, creation of Margery Allingham. Campion was supposedly created as a parody of Dorothy L. Sayers' detective Lord Peter Wimsey, Campion established his own identity, and matured and developed as the series progressed. There are 18 novels and 20 short stories featuring Mr. Campion. I have watched several of the Albert Campion Mysteries and thoroughly loved Peter Davison as the character. He is one of my favorite actors. But I really don't care for the character. I do have one Margery Allingham on the shelf but have not read it yet.
Of course Miss Marple is the best of all! (and Poirot too). I have read many Agatha Christie books and have many more on my shelf to go yet. There were so many actresses that had their turns at Miss Marple...
Which one was your favorite? It's very hard to decide...The last three on the list of course are the best known. Joan Hickson will always be Miss Marple but Geraldine McEwan was excellent and I really do like Julia McKenzie as Miss Marple in the new installments on Mystery.

So there you have it. I could go on and on there are so many....Taggert, Dalziel and Pascoe,.. But we have to stop somewhere. Hope you enjoyed my journey thru film/literary detectives and you'll leave a note with some of your favorites!
