Where can I watch Murder, She Wrote?
Former high school English teacher and famed mystery writer Jessica Fletcher (Dame Angela Lansbury) has a gift for solving mysteries. You see, it seems murder follows her around, whether it be to the houses of her seemingly endless number of friends, nieces, and nephews, or right in her hometown of Cabot Cove, Maine. Jessica is sometimes assisted by her friend Dr. Seth Hazlitt (William Windom) or the local Sheriff, Amos Tupper (Tom Bosley) and Tupper’s successor, Mort Metzger (Ron Masak), a former New York City cop. Sometimes, later in the series, Jessica would only serve as narrator. In later seasons, Jessica moved to Manhattan to teach criminology at Manhattan University.

Widowed Jessica Fletcher (Dame Angela Lansbury) didn’t intend to become a famous writer. It all started with one story written just to occupy her time after her husband, Frank died. When she discovers that her nephew, Grady Fletcher (Michael Horton) found her book and gave it to a “friend”, Kitty Donovan (Jessica Browne), who really works for a publisher, Jessica agrees to come to New York City where Grady and Kitty are and ends up solving a murder there, unintentionally becoming an amateur sleuth. From that time on, murder and all sorts of trouble seem to find Jessica wherever she goes.

When she is in her Maine hometown, Cabot Cove, she is sometimes assisted by Sheriff Amos Tupper (Tom Bosley), who is not the sharpest tool in the shed, sometimes with Dr. Seth Hazlitt (William Windom), and also Tupper’s replacement, former New York City cop, Sheriff Mort Metzger (Ron Masak). Occasionally, other sleuths help her like Boston P.I. Harry McGraw (Jerry Orbach), shady Chicago Private Eye Charlie Garrett (Wayne Rogers), and reformed thief, Dennis Stanton (Keith Michell). Jessica is a good judge of character and notices very small details. In the later seasons, she moves to New York City, serves as only the narrator in some episodes, and teaches criminology at Manhattan University.

Who Is 'Jessica Fletcher'?
As leading lady in Murder, She Wrote, Jessica Fletcher was both a novelist and part-time crime-solver. Jessica Fletcher (born Jessica Beatrice MacGill known as J.B. Fletcher when writing) is a famous Murder-Mystery Novelist, who often found herself an unwilling participant in homicide investigations. Her detective skill eventually became well known to the point where she would be called in to consult on cases from the Cabot Cove Sheriff’s Department, Scotland Yard, the FBI, and MI6.
Jessica Fletcher was the leading lady of a famous and long-running series known as Murder, She Wrote. While all Mrs. Fletcher seemed to want to do was get back to writing her novels, she kept getting pulled into these terribly inconvenient murder mysteries. Thankfully for us, Jessica Fletcher could never resist a good mystery, and thus always felt compelled to solve the murders constantly happening around her. And while she may have been a brilliant woman, there is a whole lot more to know about her. In fact, there are plenty of facts many fans likely don’t know about her character.
What’s her career before she became a novelist? Given how many crimes she has solved while in her retirement (well, retirement is a relative term in this case – the woman can’t sit still, can she?) it’s a wonder she was ever allowed to leave her job in the first place.
Jessica Fletcher's Early Life
J.B Fletcher, maiden name MacGill, was not born and raised in Cabot Cove. Jessica studied at Harrison College in Green Falls, New Hampshire to become a journalist, and after completing her education Jessica worked as a substitute English teacher. She eventually met Frank Fletcher while interning at the Appleton Theatre. Frank was a Captain in the United States Air Force and they fell in love at first sight and married. Frank and Jessica had no children, however, they raised their young nephew Grady Fletcher after his parents were killed in a car accident. The two were married until Frank became very ill and passed away leaving Jessica widowed.
Career as a Mystery Novelist Following Frank’s death, Jessica took to writing a manuscript entitled “The Corpse Danced At Midnight”. Her nephew Grady discover this manuscript and showed it to his girlfriend Kit Donovan who subsequently saw that the publishing house for which she worked, Coventry House Publishing, had it published. Thus Jessica’s career as a novelist had begun, however, her time with this publishing house would be short-lived. At the end of a homicide investigation in which Jessica took part, Preston Giles, the owner of the publishing house, was arrested for murder. Following this Jessica went on to publish several more novels with diffrent publishers. However during the course of promoting these books, or visiting friends and family she would frequently be drawn into the center of investigations, one of which even led to her filling in as Maine’s Representative to the US House of Representatives.
