Post-Sarah Phelps, BBC Prepares Next Agatha Christie Production

Deadline reports that the BBC has unveiled its first Agatha Christie adaptation in the post-Sarah Phelps era.


Screenwriter Sian Ejiwunmi-Le Berre is penning Murder is Easy for BBC One and BritBox International following a quintet of Phelps-written Christie reworks over the past decade: And Then There Were NoneThe Witness For The ProsecutionOrdeal By Innocence and The ABC Murders, which have starred the likes of John Malkovich.



Produced by ITV Studios-backed Mammoth Screen and Agatha Christie Limited and directed by Meena Gaur (Zinda BhaagWorld on Fire), the two-parter follows a man who, on a train to London, meets a woman who tells him that a killer is on the loose in the sleepy English village of Wychwood under Ashe.


The villagers believe the deaths are mere accidents, but Miss Pinkerton knows otherwise – and when she’s later found dead on her way to Scotland Yard, Luke feels he must find the killer before they can strike again.
