To say that the great Dame Angela Lansbury is merely an expressive actor could be deemed a criminal understatement. As the intrepid writer-turned-detective Jessica Fletcher in Murder, She Wrote, Lansbury is incomparable in the many looks of shock, awe, and sublime satisfaction her character wears as she weaves her way through twelve seasons of mystery and murder.
VisionTV has been the proud Canadian broadcast home of Murder, She Wrote for almost a decade and, like you, we continue to be fascinated, thrilled and thoroughly entertained by the charm, wit, suspense and many a-ha moments in this feel-great, classic series. Whether you’re watching an episode for the first time or for the tenth, Lansbury and her curious, steadfast alter-ego Fletcher, will draw you in for a twisty, turn-y ride every time.
