BBC is preparing a new adaptation of Agatha Christie

Image In 2015, the British corporation BBC made a wonderful gift to all connoisseurs of the work of Agatha Christie . In honor of the 125th anniversary of the birth of Detective Queen , BBC One has released a three-part mini-series "And There Was No One," based on the famous novel " Ten Little Indians ". The brilliant TV adaptation of one of the most famous works of Christie brought the network solid ratings and received rave reviews in the press.

It is only natural that the BBC management was eager to continue their cooperation with the Agatha Christie Limited foundation, which owns the rights to the works of the genius writer. Last summer, a new agreement was signed, under which the British media corporation was able to film seven more books by Christie .

As reported by Deadline , BBC One is ready to launch a new detective TV project. It will be a three-part mini-series based on the novel " Woe to the Innocent ", which Agatha Christie called one of her most powerful works.


At the center of the story is a noble family that survived a terrible tragedy. Two years ago, Jack Argyle was charged with the murder of his adoptive mother. Although the man insisted that he had not committed a crime, he was never able to prove his innocence. Jack was sent to prison, where he soon died. Only the rest of the family began to think that they were able to leave the tragedy in the past, as their quiet and measured life was interrupted by the appearance of a man ready to prove that Jack really did not commit murder ...

The miniseries cast includes Bill Nighy (Love Actually), Catherine Keener (Being John Malkovich), Matthew Goode (The Watchmen), Eleanor Tomlinson (Jack the Giant Slayer), Ella Purnell (Dom Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children ”), Alice Eve (“ Star Trek: Retribution ”) and many other film and television stars.


The script for the three-part detective story was written by Sarah Phelps , who has already collaborated with BBC One on the miniseries “ And There Was No One . Sandra Goldbacher ("Victoria") will take the director's chair of the intriguing project of the British television network.

Filming is expected to begin this month in Scotland.
