Directed by, and starring,  Hugh Laurie (Black Adder), the three-part drama is based on Agatha’s 1934 mystery novel. It follows the local vicar’s son and his socialite friend turning amateur detectives to solve a murder after discovering a dying man whose last words were: “Why didn’t they ask Evans?”

Emma Thompson and Jim Broadbent will star as lofty British aristocrats Lord and Lady Marcham, with Bohemian Rhapsody‘s Lucy Boynton playing their daughter Lady Frances.

The cast also includes Will Poulter, Paul Whitehouse, Conleth Hill, Morwenna Banks, Joshua James, Daniel Ings and Jonathan Jules.
