There are many indicators of one’s advancing years – the youthful appearance of the (few remaining) policemen is oft cited, as is walking upstairs and wondering why you have done so.
These I am used to, but today brings far more alarming news. Apparently, I am now older than Miss Marple! As a fan of Joan Hickson’s seminal portrayal of the elderly sleuth, I felt secure in the knowledge that this day was some decades in the future. Not so… Disney have just cast Jennifer Garner (38) as the spinster of St Mary Mead.
Or so I assume, unless Miss Marple is one of Roger Hargreaves’ less well know Little Misses? A female counterpart to Mr Nosey perhaps?
