Coming (Sort of) Soon: Tommy and Tuppence

Jessica Raine and David Walliams as Tuppence and Tommy Beresford
We’ve seen the last of Miss Marple for a while and David Suchet has given us a complete catalog of Poirot (would that we could see them all on TV).

Must we go Agatha Christie-less into the future? Perish the thought!

Production is in progress on Partners in Crime, a new series based on Christie’s Tommy and Tuppence Beresford stories. Says Radio Times:

The crime-solving husband and wife appeared in four of Christie’s books and one collection of short stories. Set in the 1950s, the six-part BBC series will follow the couple’s involvement in murder cases, Cold War conspiracy and the world of undercover agents.

The series stars David Walliams (Little Britain) and Jessica Raine (Jenny from Call the Midwife). Two stories will be dramatized—N or M and The Secret Adversary. They’re set to air in the U.K. next year, in time for the 125th anniversary of Agatha Christie’s birth. It seems likely that Tommy and Tuppence will make their way to the U.S., too.
