AND THEN THERE WERE NONE

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

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.
