The cast for the BBC's new adaptation of Agatha Christie's best selling novel And Then There Were None has been announced.
With filming for the three part drama due to commence this weekend, the cast has been announced and includes Poldark star Aidan Turner and Game of Thrones star Charles Dance.
And Then There Were None has been adapted for the BBC by Sarah Phelps (The Casual Vacancy) and stars Aidan Turner (Poldark), Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), Toby Stephens (James Bond), Miranda Richardson (Mapp and Lucia), Anna Maxwell Martin (Death Come to Pemberley), Douglas Booth (Great Expectations), Burn Gorman (The Dark Knight Rises), Noah Taylor (Peaky Blinders) and Maeve Dermody (Black Water).
Here's the BBC's description of the upcoming drama:
"The 10 strangers include a reckless playboy, a troubled Harley Street doctor, a formidable judge, an uncouth detective, an unscrupulous mercenary, a God-fearing spinster, two restless servants, a highly decorated general and an anxious secretary. One by one they are picked off. Who will survive? And who is the killer? Copies of an ominous nursery rhyme hang in each room, the murders mimicking the awful fates of its ‘Ten Little Soldier Boys’.
And Then There Were None is currently filming now and is due to be broadcast some time later this year, in order to tie in with the 125th anniversary of Agatha Christie's birth. It will be broadcast in the US in early 2016.
In other news, the BBC's other Agatha Christie drama, Partners In Crime, will be broadcast this July and will star David Walliams and Jessica Raine as Tommy and Tuppence Beresford.
