    I agree...It looks great.............i haven't read any Tommy and Tuppence stories for some time now,so maybe it helps not having a fixed idea of how they should look,but yes,promising.Will need to try and read the two books to be featured before they are screened to guage the t.v. episodes fully....
  • I hope they are able to film the last two novels as well, but Postern of Fate should be rewritten because of all the repetitive language in the book.

    I hope it's good. They are my least favorite AC characters.

    The Interview in My Magazine says that Matthew Pritchard said if the series is successful perhaps they could do something with the Miss Marple stories, The Interview says the series is set in the 50s as The 20s would seem remote, so The BBC assuming people are stupid and not able to grasp things again, Oh Dear :-(

    I agree, Tommy. Absurd logic. WW II has happened in the intervening years, and the world order is different. The position in society of the gentry to whom T and T belong is different. What unnecessary problems the directors are giving themselves. Audiences seem to have got their poor little heads around fin du ciecle and post WWI Downton Abbey, so why not T and T in the proper era?

    I have just tweeted David Walliams asking if the BBBC are saying the viewers are too stupid to understand the Time Line ad asking by being Tommy in the series isn't he agreeing with the BBC, I will tell you if I get a reply.

    I wonder whether you will. I wonder if David Walliams is really attracted to Agatha Christie and thinking of identifying himself with successive ventures such as a new Marple. Have a look down a list of Miss Marple stories and see if there is one which hasn't been done for a few years, which isn't frequently repeated, and which could do with a re-try. Maybe A Carribean Mystery - and as, on this forum, most people seem to dislike At Bertram,s Hotel, that one with a thoughtful interpretation to improve upon the book.

    The Interview says he became a Fan when he was 10 and  saw the Finney Film then he said he met Matthew Pritchard when he was in BBCs Body In The Library and then  again after he read the Beresford books, All The Miss Marple Novels have been done by ITV as welll as the Beeb but the only Short Stories to be done  which were done by ITV are The Blue Geranium and Greenshawes Folly (Oh and another short story was mingled into it), Endless Night which was re-worked from The Curious Case Of The Caretaker was done

    I think Sparkling Cyanide could be done well if the hero were to be acted very splendidly. The identity of the killer and his accomplice is really very good in the novel. Jolly difficult to guess, but good clues in the psychology. The insight into the killer's modus operandi on the charm front is spot on, and exceptionally well-explained in the dialogue and narrative by AC. Somehow the secondary characters don't come to life in the novel, but a good adaptation could do wonders. Not a criticism as such of AC, but she does have it in for beautiful women who she tries to put acros trade on their looks, and she is keen to portray them as vacuous, and to have the men getting tired of them. She is striking a blow, in her novels for the plain woman with character and brains. Sparkling Cyanide is a case in point, Megan over ElsIe Holland in The Moving Finger, Rosemary over Arlene in Evil Under the Sun. The sensible women with character always have hair which fits their heads, and fine hands - maybe Agatha Christie herself was more the characterful type. Jane Austen had a similar philosophy and wrote her novels to favour the clever, sensible type with intelligent eyes, over the Archetypal attractive, seductive female who she lived, as in Mansfield Park, to come a cropper.
