It's 1939 and Europe teeters on the brink of war. Ten strangers are invited to Soldier Island an isolated rock near the Devon coast in southern England. Cut off from the mainland, with their generous hosts Mr and Mrs U.N. Owen mysteriously absent, they are each accused of a terrible crime. As members of the party start to die one by one, the survivors realize that one of them is a killer and start to turn on each other. Written by BBC

Trivia

Promotional material prior to the show's airing revealed plot devices later dropped from the final production, including a promo shot of Vera Claythorne (Maeve Dermody) in her room with seaweed hanging from the hook. This is directly from the book where seaweed was used as a planted distraction. This scene is changed in the show, resulting in a plot hole where there is no deliberate distracted planted for the killer's mechanics to work, and is left to chance instead. A promotional photo first shown in an article on telegraph.co.uk showed two actors as Sir Thomas Legge and Inspector Maine from the book's epilogue, which was deleted for the show. See more »

Goofs

Near the end, when Vera drops the gun (to the accompaniment of a loud crash) the barrel of the gun wiggles, proving that it is rubber. See more »

Names of the actors are excluded from the title sequence after their character has died in the episode preceding. See more »

Disappointed with the adaptation. Very Slow. Mismatches in Casting.
14 March 2016 | by TeamGadarSee all my reviews

First of all, I think I have seen every adaptation of my favorite Agatha Christie book - from the 1945 version with wonderful Barry Fitzgerald playing the Judge to the 1974 Italian made version with Orson Welles voicing Owens to the 1987 Russian version directed by Stanislav Govorukhin. And then some.

This is by far the worst - in my opinion. Though I do seem to be in the minority from other reviews and high ratings. I respect each opinion.

It is okay to adapt, but first the pace is excruciatingly slow the nuances are not kept as subtle as in the book. Then the casting is really bad - especially the lead characters. Maeve Dermody is very unlikable as a perpetually-upset, moody and paranoid character - which she is not in the book. Also Aidan Turner and Miranda Richardson are miscasts. Sir Charles Dance, Sam Neill and Toby Stephens are the only believable characters, who lend some credibility to their roles.

Visually also the film lacks authenticity. I believe they used a lot of CGI for the island and seems they lost the perspectives and proportions. The island looks so small in certain scenes and then so large in others. The house architecture is so out of place for early 20th century.

With the advances in Visual technology, I was hoping for a new take on the story - at least visually. I was quite disappointed. Anyways since I am a fan of the story, I did give it four stars.
