And Then There Were Two
16 October 2020 | by timothylane-22717See all my reviews

The show loved to parody other shows (such as the Batman parody in "The Winged Adventure" and the title of "The Girl From AUNTIE") and movies, and this is a fine parody of Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None" and the two movies based on it (at the time). In the original, after 3 of 10 guests were killed, they concluded that the killer was one of the 7 remaining. In this episode, the 7 were informed of this at the very beginning. One might note that a key element was a faked death (which The Avengers took a bit further). Finally, in both it comes down to a man and woman left. In the book the woman killed the man and eventually committed suicide, but in the play and both movies they survived.
