Recommended Agatha Christie TV Adaptations

I was recently asked by the official Agatha Christie website to put together a list of television adaptations that I recommend. Although the title says they’re my ‘favourite’, they aren’t necessarily (although several are) – instead, I put together a nice variety to keep people amused and entertained while stuck indoors.

Greenway Literary Festival 2020

I’m really pleased to say that I’ll be making an appearance at this year’s Greenway Literary Festival. I’ll be speaking with Guy Slater, who produced the brilliant Miss Marple series on the BBC starring the peerless Joan Hickson. You can find more information and book a ticket here. We’ll be speaking in the evening of Friday 12 June, and there are plenty of other events that sound great – plus it’s good to have any excuse to visit Agatha Christie’s gorgeous Devon home, now owned by the National Trust.

Talks: Recent & Forthcoming

Over the last few years I’ve had a great time giving talks about Agatha Christie at various events, including a discussion of some lesser known screen adaptations at the inaugural Greenway Literary Festival last year. Most recently I was delighted to introduce a screening of Crooked House at the International Agatha Christie Festival in Torquay in September 2019.

I have quite a few talks already lined up for 2020 (and even one pencilled in for 2021!), and once I can tell people about them I will. Although this site holds the archive for the Agatha Christie on Screen blog, from now on it’s a place where I can let people know where they can hear one of my talks or read one of my publications.

New (very short!) article: In Media Res

I recently took part in an Agatha Christie themed week over at In Media Res, a scholarly blog that specialises in bite-sized articles that ‘curate’ something – perhaps a clip, or a film poster. I decided to curate the trailer for the Margaret Rutherford film Murder She Said – surprisingly difficult to do when you only have about 350 words to play with!

You can find the article here. Of course, you can find out even more about the Margaret Rutherford films in my book, Agatha Christie on Screen, which you can order here or from your retailer of choice.
