Thank You Netfilx!!!

First things first, this is my first review on IMDB and I signed up just to write it! To get it out of the way I am a MASSIVE Agatha Christie fan. I can't say what this film would be like to someone who doesn't know or hasn't read AC. But for me, I WAS SO IMPRESSED!!! Whoever made this has done two great things, they've made a film which is a really fun whodunnit BUT ALSO packed it full of detail for people who love Agatha Christie! I'm not going to give it all away here but it's a treasure trove. Go hunting!

Performances are great and it's funny! People always forget that Agatha Christie is funny. If I had to criticise I'd say it's simpler than your average Christie but then I suppose there's only so much you can fit into an hour and a half. One things for sure, I'd rather this a million times over the latest adaptation of ABC. And that was authorized by the AC estate. What are they thinking?! The Truth Of Murder is much closer in spirit and sooooooooo much better period!

Also. I love Ruth Bradley. What a great Agatha Christie. Please Netflix, can we have some more?!!!
