A major new Agatha Christie ‘Block Buster,’ And Then Were None is being shown in a three part series on BBC One starting at 9pm on the 26th December. This new TV adaptation has an impressive cast including Douglas Booth, Maeve Dermody, Burn Gorman, Aidan Turner, Charles Dance and William Bore and has been flagged by the Christmas Radio Times as a ‘must see’ over the Festive Period.
And Then Were None is the best selling crime novel of all time, with 100 million copies sold worldwide and was voted recently by Agatha Christie Fans as her most popular novel. Agatha Christie based And Then Were None on Soldier Island (Burgh Island) on the South Devon Coast.
“The power of productions like this in helping to positively promote an area cannot be under estimated” said Carolyn Custerson, Chief Executive of the ERTC “with viewing figures for And Then Were None expected to be in the millions. Agatha Christie is a hugely valuable USP for the area being born in Torquay and going on to be the world’s greatest crime writer in history. Every year the ERTC welcome journalists and fans from all over the world wanting to experience ‘Agatha Christie’s Riviera’ and this presents a major opportunity for local businesses”.
