Murder, She Wrote: A Waitress To Die For

Finally! It’s been a long time coming.

The BBC have been showing the TV series Murder, She Wrote for quite a while now and they are, at last, approaching the end of season 12.  Why is this important to us?  Episode 22, titled What You Don’t Know Can Kill You, sees Kathryn get an acting credit.

First broadcast in May of 1996 in the USA, over 13 years ago now, it is one of Kathryn’s earlier small screen appearances.  The part, credited only as Doreen the Waitress, is likely to be very small.  Of course Kathryn later crossed paths with Angela Lansbury again in one of the Murder, She Wrote TV movies that followed the end of the TV series.  A Story To Die For (which crops up occasionally on ITV) saw Kathryn in a far more substantial role as the personal assistant of one of the main protagonists.

I’ve been tracking the progress of the show on BBC2 for nearly a year now having noticed it was getting regular showings (normally once a day, five days a week), and that they were progressing through the various seasons in order.  I predicted that the one episode I actually wanted to see would be broadcast around this time.  It was looking tantalisingly close a month ago but various horses races and tennis championships, including the Wimbledon fortnight, got in the way.  Well now it is in the schedules to be shown in a couple of weeks time.
