The real victim of crime is Agatha Christie
13 August 2015 | by blakedwSee all my reviews

The title of this series alone should qualify it for prosecution under the Trade Description's Act. Agatha Christie had nothing to do with what passes for a plot in this pathetic pastiche of a whodunnit. It is the latest entrant to a long line of programmes which use Christie titles and the names of Christie characters and then throw away everything else. "The Secret Adversary" has already been done once on British TV in a form which stuck pretty closely to the original plot. It is quite a silly plot but has a certain logic. There is even a sort of balance in the character relations and a bit of romantic mystery over where Tuppence will fix her affections. None of that has survived into the BBC version. For no apparent reason it is moved from the 1920's to the 1950's. The mystery plot is drastically downgraded, the dialogue dreadful and the acting shows how much stress the cast must have been under. The BBC seems to like doing remakes of well known classics, for example "The Lady Vanishes" and "The Thirty Nine Steps." It usually does them pretty badly and "Partners in Crime" is no exception.
