Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None This Christmas on BBC-1

Published

And Then There Were None BBC

Another major Christmas drama highlight heading to BBC One this festive period will be an all star adaptation of Agatha Christie’s best seller And Then There Were None.

Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None is the best-selling crime novel of all time with 100 million copies sold worldwide, and now for the first time the book will be adapted into a major new three-part television series.

1939. Europe teeters on the brink of war. Ten strangers are invited to Soldier Island, an isolated rock near the Devon coast. Cut off from the mainland, with their generous hosts Mr and Mrs U. N. Owen mysteriously absent, they are each accused of a terrible crime. When one of the party dies suddenly they realise they may be harbouring a murderer among their number.

Douglas Booth (Great Expectations, The Riot Club) as Anthony Marston, Charles Dance (Game Of Thrones, Imitation Game) as Justice Lawrence Wargrave, Maeve Dermody (Black Water, Beautiful Kate) as Vera Claythorne, Burn Gorman (The Dark Knight Rises, Torchwood) as William Blore, Anna Maxwell Martin (The Bletchley Circle, Death Comes To Pemberley) as Ethel Rogers, Sam Neill (Peaky Blinders, The Tudors) as General John MacArthur, Miranda Richardson (Mapp & Lucia, Parade’s End) as Miss Emily Brent, Toby Stephens (Black Sails, Jane Eyre) as Dr Edward Armstrong, Noah Taylor (Peaky Blinders, Game of Thrones) as Thomas Rogers and Aidan Turner (Poldark, The Hobbit Trilogy) as Philip Lombard form a stellar ensemble cast.

The 10 strangers include a reckless playboy, a troubled Harley Street doctor, a formidable judge, an uncouth detective, an unscrupulous mercenary, a God-fearing spinster, two restless servants, a highly decorated general and an anxious secretary. One by one they are picked off. Who will survive? And who is the killer? Copies of an ominous nursery rhyme hang in each room, the murders mimicking the awful fates of its ‘Ten Little Soldier Boys’.
