AND THEN THERE WERE NONE

“This outrageously talented cast is matched by mesmerising production values and an attention to detail that beggars belief. It must surely be the best Christie adaptation made yet for television.” The Times Saturday Review, David Chater

“Bravo to the director Craig Viveiros, and to the whole production, for capturing the hedonism as well as the horror.” The Times, Alex Hardy

“This three-part adaptation of Agatha Christie’s masterpiece is one of the darkest shows airing this Christmas, but also the most brilliant.” TV Times

“A gripping confection… Craig Viveiros invested the island with a genuine sense of threat.” Sunday Telegraph, Jasper Rees

“Astoundingly and almost absurdly entertaining… this drama knows exactly what it wants to accomplish and the kind of crisp yet evocative tone it wants to establish; it’s rare to feel so quickly that one is in sure, confident hands.”  Maureen Ryan, Variety

“Writer Sarah Phelps and director Craig Viveiros understand intuitively that classic mysteries linger in the memory — and in the popular imagination — because they are not just about the who did what to whom, but why.” Maureen Ryan, Variety

“We, the viewers, are part of a devilish pact, gleefully delighting in Christie’s pointed brutality.” Keith Uhlich, Hollywood Reporter
