They don't call me Miss Marple for nothing
I'm still undecided about Julia McKenzie as Marple.

But I do know that Salad Days shouldn't feature in an adaptation set in 1933.

I thought it was post-war, too (not least the references to Malaya). There was a 1933 newspaper or somesuch, but I thought that related to the baby not the adults.

I only watched a couple of the previous incarnation of "Carry On Marple"; JM I thought was much better, but the story still dropped off a cliff about half way through.

at least one other actor I recognised but couldn't identify

Steve Pemberton from The League of Gentlemen?

Yes, the National Health Service thing got me, too. My history isn't that good, but the number of comments about Americans and "before the war" made it feel post-WW2, as well. I saw the newspaper and presumed it was to date the story, but it was very brief, so maybe you're right about that.

Since posting the original message I have been wondering whether Maureen Lipman would work as Miss Marple ...
