The British writer and producer Sarah Phelps has breathed new life into Agatha Christie's classics, bringing a bleakness and modern sensibility into the Queen of Crime's masterpieces. Warning if you are looking for a cozy mystery or a literal adaptation, look elsewhere.
Christmas 1954. Wealthy philanthropist Rachel Argyll is murdered at her family estate Sunny Point. Her adopted son Jack Argyll is arrested for her murder. He vehemently protests his innocence. This is a VERY dark adaptation of Agatha Christie and one that purists are likely to hate.
The hunt is on to find the murderer of a wealthy glamorous heiress who is found dead in her London townhouse. Based on the short story by Agatha Christie.
