Here's one for the music sleuths!

What’s the connection between the 1964 hit single “Have I the Right?” (which pushed The Beatles out of number one spot in the charts) and Miss Marple? While you're working that one out, did you know that The Honeycombs (that chart-topping group) featured one of the first female drummers.

“Have I the Right?” was the first commercial success for song-writing team Ken Howard and Alan Blaikley (pictured above), who eventually went on to write the Miss Marple Main Theme (this fantastic production takes us from the title theme through the score for the series) for the Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple BBC TV series that ran from 1984 to 1992. Joan Hickson starred in the title role for this series.
