Agatha Christie’s Partners In Crime
Friday, ABC, 8.30pm
Who doesn’t love an Agatha Christie mystery? There’s a reason the legendary writer’s words and countless adaptations have lasted so long – they are damned good. In this new series premiering tonight, Little Britain’s David Walliams (left) drops gross-out gags for red herrings and double crosses and it’s a nice change to see his versatility. Cloaked in the charm of village life in 1952 England, Tommy (Walliams) and Tuppence (Jessica Raine) have a chance encounter with an agitated young woman on the train whose disappearance inspires the amateur sleuths to follow her trail.
