First image from Agatha Christie’s Partners In Crime revealed by BBC

A few months ago we ran a story detailing the BBC’s plans for Agatha Christie’s 125th anniversary next year (read it here). It had signed a new deal with Christie’s estate to make new adaptations, the top-line being Agatha Christie’s married couple Tommy and Tuppence to life in a brand-new six-part adventure series for the channel. Filming has already started on the series – touted for Christmas 2015 – and yesterday the BBC released the first image.

Partners In Crime stars David Walliams as Tommy and Call The Midwife’s Jessica Raine (who also suffered a sudden and unexpected death in Line Of Duty) as Tuppence.

Directed by Edward Hall (Restless, Downton Abbey), episodes one to three, The Secret Adversary, are written by award-winning author, playwright and director Zinnie Harris, with the following three, N or M? penned by Claire Wilson.

Partners In Crime is an adventure series with espionage and humour at its heart. Set in a 1950s Britain rising from the ashes of the Blitz into the grip of a new Cold War, our beekeeping duo stumble into a world of murder, undercover agents and cold war conspiracy.

Tuppence is a woman who sees adventure round every corner, throwing herself head first into every mystery with passion and fervour, determined to get to the truth no matter what it takes, much to the dismay of her more cautious husband Tommy.

They certainly look the part.
