And Then There Were None

Murder mystery series based on the novel by Agatha Christie, in which 10 strangers are drawn away from their normal lives to an isolated rock off the Devon coast.

A reckless playboy. A decrepit judge. A nervous businessman. An unhinged Harley Street doctor. A God-fearing spinster. A secretive governess. A guilt-ridden general. A remorseless mercenary. Two anxious servants.

Ten strangers, drawn away from their normal lives to an isolated rock off the Devon coast.

But as the mismatched group waits for the arrival of the hosts – the improbably named Mr and Mrs U.N. Owen – the weather sours and they find themselves cut off from civilisation.

Very soon, the guests, each struggling with their conscience, will start to die – one by one, according to the rules of the nursery rhyme Ten Little Soldier Boys - a rhyme that hangs in every room of the house and ends with the most terrifying words of all: "...and then there were none."

These first-class agents tenaciously investigate cases of tremendous magnitude, including terrorism, organised crime and counterintelligence.

In the Season 2 premiere, "Little Egypt": After a bomb detonates at a restaurant in Queens, the case becomes personal for OA, who grew up eating there.

Father Brown Christmas Special

"The Tree of Truth"

Father Brown attempts to overturn a miscarriage of justice while rehearsing for the Kembleford Christmas pantomime.

It's December, and Father Brown, Mrs McCarthy and Bunty are visited by an old friend as they make mince pies and decorate the presbytery.

Sid has returned for Christmas, bearing gifts from Lady Felicia.

Meanwhile as locals walk through the woods, a dog uncovers a partially skeletonised hand in the cold ground.

The body is identified as Scarlett Dreyfuss, a woman reported missing after the dress rehearsal of Red Riding Hood in 1946, throwing open a seven year-old case.

But that doesn't stop the Kembleford Amateur Dramatics Society from holding their auditions for this year's pantomime, Cinderella.

Mrs McCarthy is left disappointed when Bunty is given the role of Fairy Godmother over her, while Father Brown and Sid are left with rather undignified parts.

When Scarlett's post-mortem is delivered, Inspector Mallory realises that the confession of her supposed killer, gentle giant Benny, is a pack of lies.

A terrible miscarriage of justice has taken place - can Father Brown overturn it in time for Christmas?
