Amorkuz has suggested Jane Marple due to T:HONOUR. It is unclear where the first name Jane comes from in a DWU source.

Talk about it here.


Miss Marple was a fictional detective created by Agatha Christie. Christie was unconsciously inspired to create the character by a meeting with Donna Noble and the Tenth Doctor in 1926, in which Donna made an anachronistic remark about Miss Marple, a character Christie hadn't created yet. (TV: The Unicorn and the Wasp)

Lavinia Smith liked to think of herself as a Miss Marple type, sending Sarah Jane to investigate and report on her behalf, such as when she sent her to Egypt. (COMIC: City of Devils)

When Clyde Langer was trying to remember the name of St Agnes Abbey, he thought it was like the lady writer who wrote about the "old lady detective" which prompted Sarah Jane to say Miss Marple. (TV: Eye of the Gorgon)

Behind the Scenes Edit

Miss Marple was played by Julia McKenzie in the ITV series Marple. Julie Cox played her in a flashback in one episode. She has also been played by June Whitfield on BBC Radio.
