I like this episode of Murder, She Wrote. Jessica (Angela Lansbury) and Amos Tupper (Tom Bosley) board a bus in Cabot Cove which is bound for Portland. Jessica is speaking at the Sheriff’s Convention. Several passengers also board in Cabot Cove and two passengers are picked on the trip to Portland. It’s getting late and it’s pouring rain! The bus stops at a small café when the bus driver (Michael Constantine) informs his passengers the bus is having engine problems. The passengers find respite in the café while the driver works on the bus. Well, you guessed it, Jessica finds one of the passengers murdered on the bus!
This has great atmosphere. It’s pouring rain, night time, the bus is traveling. En route, two people board, no one gets off until they reach the café! The killer is one of them!
I liked this episode too! It is very vivid in my memory. It felt a little bit like a condensed Agatha Christie mystery.
Yes. It is very stormy. A condensed Agatha is good!
I need to try to find this episode somewhere so I can watch it!! It sounds very atmospheric.
It’s Season 1 Episode 18. 🙂
