Trivia

The series was originally filmed with Ed Westwick playing Mickey Argyll, and was scheduled to air around the Christmas season of 2017. However in November 2017, the British Broadcasting Corporation announced that it would not broadcast the series while an investigation into Westwick on allegations of serious sexual assault was ongoing. In January 2018, the BBC announced that they were commencing re-shoots with Christian Cooke replacing Westwick. See more »

Goofs

Jack Argyll never needed Dr. Calgary for his alibi. As Dr. Calgary dropped Jack off at a local pub, at 9:00, on Christmas Eve, anyone at the pub: Barkeep, barmaid, all the other customers, could have easily identified him, and vouched for his whereabouts at the time of the murder. Why didn't Jack, or his solicitor, seek them out? Also, Given the notoriety the case received in the press, it's makes no sense that no one from the pub stepped forward. See more »

Gorgeous, well paced adaptation.
30 September 2018 | by marketingdivadebSee all my reviews

Binged in one afternoon. I couldn't remember the book (read all Christie's decades ago!) so got caught up easily in the mystery. Scenery, settings and use of color is GORGEOUS. Loved the twists and turns. Extremely well acted and well paced. If you enjoyed Harlen Corbin's "Safe" and "The Five" you'll enjoy this. Looking forward to seeing more from this director and screenwriter.
