AND THEN THERE WERE NONE
Agatha Christie’s murder-mystery novel from 1939 revolves around 10 people who are invited to an island by a mysterious host.
They have all been complicit in the deaths of others but have escaped punishment and so are killed off one by one in the style of the American poem Ten Little Indians.
Christie adapted the novel for the stage because its ending was too dark for theatre audiences, and Vera Claythorne and Philip Lombard manage to escape.
The BBC’s adaptation, aired in 2015, mostly honoured Christie’s original, but there were changes, including how and where some characters die.
