Agatha Christie back on the small screen

Filming is due to begin this summer on And Then There Were None, the second in the BBC's canon of small screen Agatha Christie adaptations.

From Mammoth Screen and Acorn Entertainment, the three-parter is adapted by Sarah Phelps (The Casual Vacancy, Great Expectations) and is for delivery to BBC One. The original book is Christie's most successful work, having sold over 100 million copies, and centres on ten strangers marooned on an island who start to die one by one.  

Phelps said of the work: "And Then There Were None is Agatha Christie's masterpiece, a brilliant, unsettling, forensically precise psychological thriller about guilt and paranoia, crime and punishment. It is as sharp as a scalpel, as gripping as a steadily tightening noose, its darkness interspersed with the blackest of black wit."

From 30 April, subscribers to Production Intelligence can find confirmed details of the shoot dates and locations, along with crucial hires such as the casting director, producer, director, location manager, production designer and line producer.

The drama follows on from Partners in Crime, from Endor Productions and Acorn, which filmed for three months at the end of last year and which starred David Walliams and Jessica Raine.
