Formula: the murderer is either Lansbury's oldest friend in the guest cast, or the actor playing that person's immediate family member.

Actually, that's not true. The murderer was very rarely Jessica's oldest friend, and when they were, it stood out from other episodes.
It's the same with the number of nieces and nephews she had. She really didn't have that many; the actual problem with the show was the very large number of close friends she had in a variety of professions who lived all over the states(and the world). And they were always close friends. "Jessica I need some advice, and you're the [italic]only[/italic] person I can turn to."

[R29] [R37] I caught that episode on TV today. I liked the ending, it was quite dark. The male secretary (Andrew Stevens, better known as Casey Denault in Dallas) declares his love for Jessica but she brushes him off. When Jessica turns away his expression hardens into one that suggests he's been thwarted. I don't think he had murder in mind, but he was after her money.

We are trans BIPOC and are mad as hell that this show went deliberately out of its way to EXCLUDE us. To exclude us and pretend we don't exist is literal violence.
This show was cultural appropriation at its most hideous. The first mystery ever was solved by a courageous trans Black woman but cis white people have stolen the entire jandra from brave BIPOC folks.

Of course Harvey had an EX wife. Many, many gay men did back then. And a kid or two. An ex-wife doesn't make you straight any more than having experimented with a guy makes you gay.

I'm the one where they solved (in the present) the plot of an old movie that starred Jeffrey Lynn and Martha Scott, and they used the old footage, and cast the same stars. They had to change the ending of the movie to an unsolved murder but it was an interesting idea.

R189 -I recently came across that episode and the blurb on the website identified the guest as Caitlyn Jenner... I guess I'm weird, but I have no problem with Bruce becoming Caitlyn -a new person and a new life. But for some reason I resent the erasure of Bruce as though he never existed. There was a Bruce (pronouns he/him/his) and now there is a Caitlyn (pronouns she/her/hers).

R195 That's creepy. It's like hearing about Mormon activists who baptize the corpses of famous non-Mormons so they can claim them as members of the faith. According to their history, Anne Frank (who was living as a sinful non-Mormon at the time) died in the Holocaust because she hadn't yet licked the golden plates in Provo, or whatever the fuck they believe.
