The ABC Murders UK broadcast date confirmed

Episode 1 of The ABC Murders, the latest Agatha Christie adaptation to be penned for the small screen by Sarah Phelps, will air in the UK on BBC One this Boxing Day - 26th December - at 9.00pm.

The year is 1933 and a killer stalks Britain, known only as A.B.C. They strike in a methodical pattern and leave a copy of the ABC railway guide at the scene of each of murder. As Poirot attempts to investigate he is thwarted on every front; by a police force that no longer trusts him, a public that no longer adores him, and an enemy determined to outsmart him. If Poirot is to match his most cunning nemesis everything about him will be called into question; his authority, his integrity, his past, his identity.

John Malkovich stars as Hercule Poirot, with Rupert Grint as Inspector Crome of Scotland Yard.

Agatha Christie Limited and Mammoth Screen co-produce. Alex Gabassi directs, with Farah Abushwesha producing.
