About Heron Carvic

Heron Carvic (21 January 1913-9 February 1980) was a British actor and writer who voiced Gandalf in the BBC Radio version of The Hobbit, and played Caiphas the High Priest in the play cycle The Man Born To Be King.

As a writer, he created the characters and wrote the first five novels featuring Miss Emily D. Seeton, a gentle parody of Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple.

Under two other pseudonyms, further books nominally in the Miss Seeton series were written. In 1990, Roy Peter Martin wrote three novels as Hampton Charles. Sarah J. Mason, writing under the name Hamilton Crane, continued the series, writing 14 books in total, some of which are still available.

“I’m sorry if I seemed a little abrupt when you first arrived, but my housekeeper is out shopping and I was working”—she gestured towards the typewriter and the litter of papers on the desk—“and one gets immersed. It’s so difficult to switch one’s concentration. Particularly,” she smiled apologetically, and put her hand to her head, “when one has an extremely bad headache.” “I’m so sorry. How dreadful for you,” sympathised Miss Seeton. “Shouldn’t you lie down? But what a curious coincidence.” She opened her bag and began to hunt in it. “I was given something for a headache only this morning. It’s in here somewhere. I’m most unlikely to use them as I don’t care for taking drugs myself.” “Why not? Who’s not caring about taking drugs?” Both women turned at the interruption. Mrs. Venning went quickly to the door. “Angela, what are you doing down here? Go back to your room.” “Oh, don’t be so fud. What gives? What’s that”

 “I mean it, it’s another gap in your education. Until you can learn to understand her, you’ll get nowhere as a detective. She’s everybody’s conscience, Bob—the universal maiden aunt, cousin or sister. Humanity’s backbone. Throughout history, she’s gone to the stake for you again and again; not with any sense of heroism, but as a matter of principle and because it would never occur to her to do anything else.”
― Heron Carvic, Picture Miss Seeton

“So many writers had grown lyrical over spring. And, one must admit, it was easy to love a lamb: but how soon that engaging frivolity would yield to the placid idiocy of its inheritance; it was not easy to love a sheep. Summer? Yes, but it was overweighted, overcolored. No – for herself she preferred late autumn, when line returned, with wider, subtler blends of color and experience.”
― Heron Carvic, Miss Seeton Draws the Line

 “Misguided missile.” A happy simile; he must remember it. Perhaps a word to the War Office: the next time a cold war hotted up it might be an idea to launch her into the trouble spot, which should give the troublemakers enough troubles of their own to prevent them from troubling other people.”
― Heron Carvic, Miss Seeton Sings

 “something . . .” So colorful. Not romantic—no, one couldn’t call it that; if anything perhaps a trifle sordid. Carmen, herself, for instance, no better than she should be. In fact, if one were frank, worse. And the other girl, the young one; it was difficult to feel sorry for her. Her”

 “about these matters. One read that people abroad did frequently get emotional and kill each other. Probably the heat. Miss Seeton stepped aside to avoid a pile of crates. She peered at them. Seville oranges. How interesting. Spain. Such”

“Knowing themselves to be faultless, they make it their mission to detect the myriad faults in others, against which they wage incessant tongue.”
― Heron Carvic, Witch Miss Seeton

 “When somebody’s too smooth like he is, then somebody else is going to get the rough of it I always say.”
― Heron Carvic, Picture Miss Seeton

“Not to say surprise no. Too smooth by half I’ve always thought him.”
