A Year of Surprises

"During the tenth season of "Murder She Wrote," a few personal surprises lurked around the corner for the show's star, and these issues would inevitably raise questions about whether the TV franchise would continue. For years, Angela Lansbury had been plagued with bouts of hip pain, thus resulting in surgery to help rectify the situation. But would this stop the actress? Absolutely not! The show must go on, as the saying goes, and Angela was quoted: "If I need a cane for the first few shows, the writers will just write it in."
But in November of 1994, the Lansbury family was devastated with the news that Angela's husband, Peter Shaw (may he rest in peace), had to undergo double bypass and heart valve replacement surgery.
The production of "Murder She Wrote" was shut down for three weeks so the family could be together during this time. In the end, however, Angela and Peter triumphed over those obstacles, and the show resumed filming for the its tenth season. The results are nothing if not rewarding.
Some of the seasons' highlights include the opener, "A Death in Hong Kong," where on-location scenery and a strong cast make this episode a success. In "A Virtual Murder," Jessica Fletcher and the viewing public are introduced to the fast-growing world of technology. Jessica learns first hand how murderous a virtual reality computer game can be. The 200th episode, "Bloodlines," reunites Angela Lansbury with one of her MGM co-stars from fifty years before: Mickey Rooney. This is a landmark episode in more ways than one. Set at London's Garrick Theatre, "White in Murder" creates a creepy atmosphere, on and off stage. Much like "White in Murder," the 213th episode, "The Dying Game," repeats the sinister setting, but this time in a department store where murder and death masks itself behind a mannequin. Whether or not the ending of the season bodes well with Cabot Cove fans, "Wheel of Death" sure makes its mark during a carnival event in the fall months in Maine.

"Murder, She Wrote is the best mystery show ever on TV. I am a lover of mysteries, and if you want to watch a good one, go no further. The cast is spectacular, and the writers are gifted. These episodes will keep you guessing until the very end."

"Just love the series. I watched the whole season in a weekend. I wish that there were extras...bloopers, cast interviews, things like that."
