Agatha Christie

In 1926, beloved mystery writer Agatha Christie disappeared for 11 days. Over the years, that disappearance has created almost as much intrigue as her bestselling novels.

Terry Loane’s Agatha and The Truth of Murder is a stunning reimagining of what happened to the author over those days nearly a hundred years ago. With a story as compelling as one Christie herself might have written, this historical murder mystery is charming and enigmatic, with a strong female lead who was well ahead of her time. Agatha and The Truth of Murder will be available on selected EST platforms in the U.S. and Canada on April 7 and to rent and buy on DVD on April 21, 2020.

Starring Ruth Bradley (Humans, Primeval), Pippa Haywood (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, If Only), Dean Andrews (Life on Mars, Last Tango in Halifax), Bebe Cave (Victoria, On Chisel Beach), Tim McInnerney (Notting Hill, Eddie The Eagle), Ralph Ineson (Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, Chernobyl) and Blake Harrison (A Very English Scandal, The Inbetweeners), Agatha and The Truth of Murder is in the spirit of Christie’s Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple novels, with the visual charm of Downton Abbey.

Agatha Christie (Ruth Bradley), a young mystery novel writer, sets out to help solve a real-life murder case when a wealthy woman is found bludgeoned to death. With the help of the murdered woman’s lover (Pippa Haywood), she assumes a disguise and a trap is set for the suspects. But she soon discovers that real-life cases are harder to solve, and this killer is far more cunning and dangerous than her fictional creations.

Christie’s fans will recognize that this is not a factual retelling of the author’s disappearance. Still, those looking for diversion will enjoy the steep drop into the past. ◊
