Letter: Michael Bakewell obituary


Michael Bakewell made an amazing contribution to radio. His magnificent dramatisations of Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot, nonetheless performed on BBC Radio 4 Further, had been directed by Enyd Williams between the late Eighties and the early 2000s. Starring June Whitfield because the unassuming aged woman within the nook who sees every thing, and John Moffatt because the little man with huge moustaches, they marked the epitome of common audio drama.

My one remorse as commissioning editor for the drama on Radio 4 is that regardless of all negotiations I by no means bought the Agatha Christie property to launch rights for Michael to dramatise the ultimate Poirot, Curtain: Poirot’s Final Case.
