Being a Sausage: Who Might Be the Next Miss Marple?

Organ Grinder at the Guardian blogs on Who should be the next Miss Marple now that Geraldine MacEwan has announced her retirement.

If ITV's looking to appeal more to the US, Maggie Smith or Helen Mirren would bring a bit of spice to the role.

But why not go completely left-field and bring in David Suchet? Think of the cross-promotion opportunities.

Top suggestion here at Media Guardian Towers though is someone renowned for her sharp tongue and ability to tease out people's secrets.

Yes...the campaign for Dame Edna Everage for Miss Marple starts here.
