Prev Next

Jessica Fletcher (portrayed by Angela Lansbury) may have looked like she would be more at home baking pies in the kitchen then at a crime scene but she proved to us week in and week out that appearances can be deceiving. Jessica Fletcher was the mystery writer turned detective decades before Castle was conceived and somehow brought a feel-good element to the murder-mystery genre. While there may be more hard-hitting detectives than Fletcher, she brought a very unique spin to television.
