As you can see from the title of this post, today’s topic is of a serious scholarly nature…. not. Nevertheless this question has been bugging me for a few days so I thought I would open it out to all of you, on the off chance you need some new procrastination fodder. Without further ado below are the categories I have decided to judge each detective’s deadliness on, awarding points for each category winner. But who has won the final, (very non-existent), trophy? Well you’ll just have to read on to find out (and no you can’t just skip down to the end)….
Round 1: Who would win in a fight?
Perhaps my least sensible category, as it does stretch the muscles of one’s imagination to picture Miss Marple taking part in arm wrestling, well any form of wrestling really… Maybe she knows Kung Fu? No …. be serious Kate.
Round 2: Battle of the Allusions
Round 3: Wildest Animal Descriptions
Round 4: Best expert in camouflage
Round 5: Who would you not want investigating your crime if you were a killer?
With the scores tied this final round will be the decider…
Well it was a close fight but Miss Marple just sneaked ahead at the end, so at 3:2, I hereby declare that Miss Marple is the most deadliest! After all it is said in Nemesis by a character that Miss Marple is ‘the most frightening woman I ever met.’ So if you are planning on a committing a murder, make sure Miss Marple isn’t around…
