Trivia

The opening card states that the details of Christie's disappearance on 3 December 1926 have never been revealed. She was found 10 days later at a spa in the country registered as Mrs Tressa Neele (the surname of her husband's lover). Speculation as to her state of mind during this time remains a mystery; with some believing she was suffering temporary amnesia, or deliberately trying to embarrass her husband even to the point of framing him for her murder, or simply hiding. The incident was not mentioned by Christie in her autobiography. See more »

Very enjoyable
24 December 2018 | by acunnington-49732See all my reviews

This was a very enjoyable and engrossing drama that was much better than I had anticipated. The characters were well defined and well acted, the story was engrossing (if a little far-fetched), and the production quality was top-notch. Ruth Bradley was extremely engaging as Agatha Christie and it was lovely to see Pippa Haywood on our screens again. Yeah, it was good!
