FIRST LOOK Murder is Easy

The BBC has released a number of first look images from their upcoming adaptation of the classic Agatha Christie mystery.

Based on the classic mystery by Agatha Christie, Murder is Easy is set in England in 1954. On a train to London, Fitzwilliam meets Miss Pinkerton 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, Fitzwilliam feels he must find the killer before they can strike again. Because for a certain kind of person, murder is easy.

Joining Penelope Wilton as Miss Pinkerton and David Jonsson as Fitzwilliam will be Morfydd Clark as Bridget, Penelope Wilton as Miss Pinkerton, Sinead Matthews as Miss Waynflete, Tom Riley as Lord Whitfield, Douglas Henshall as Major Horton, Mathew Baynton as Dr Thomas, Mark Bonnar as Reverend Humbleby, Nimra Bucha as Mrs Humbleby, Tamzin Outhwaite as Mrs Pierce, Jon Pointing as Rivers, and Phoebe Licorish making her screen debut as Rose.

Murder is Easy is made by Mammoth Screen (part of ITV Studios) and Agatha Christie Limited, and is a co-commission between the BBC and BritBox International. Adapted by Siân Ejiwunmi-Le Berre, it's being directed by Meenu Gaur and produced by Karen Kelly and has been cast by casting directors Karen Lindsay-Stewart and Emily Jacobs.

Executive producers are Siân Ejiwunmi-Le Berre, James Prichard for Agatha Christie Limited, James Gandhi and Damien Timmer for Mammoth Screen, Danielle Scott-Haughton for the BBC, and Reemah Sakaan and Stephen Nye for BritBox International.
