Partners in Crime Coming Soon

Now that we have had to bid adieu to ITV’s Poirot, it’s the BBC’s turn to take up the Agatha Christie challenge.

Their first effort will be two new Tommy and Tuppence Beresford adaptations. Christie wrote four Tommy and Tuppence novels (and some short stories) that follow the couple’s sleuthing adventures.

The two novels being adapted this time are The Secret Adversary and N or M? and will be set in the 1950s. Both will consist of three episodes and are due to begin sometime this month (July).

No trailer or exact date yet but you can check out the press release here.

Christie and the BBC – and a Lewis Trailer!

Now that ITV has aired the final Poirot episode, it’s the BBC’s turn to take on the Agatha Christie canon. Their first two commissions include a new adaptation of, And Then There Were None, and a six-part series featuring Christie’s husband and wife sleuths, Tommy and Tuppence.

In the meantime, those craving a golden age fix can enjoy a Miss Marple double-header on PBS this Sunday, September 21st  – A Caribbean Mystery and Greenshaw’s Folly.

Also, check out the new promo for Lewis. PBS will air the first of three new episodes on October 5th.
