    Just aired on BBC1, will probably be showing up other places soon enough. One of the best Agatha Christie adaptations I've ever seen (far superior to the recent "Orient Express" flick). Three episodes, the first is good, the second really good, and the third is just fantastic. Twists and turns abound! Long-buried secrets revealed! The character of the mother, OMG! She has to be one of Christie's most monstrous characters. The use of extensive flashbacks is a bit confusing in the first ep, but that's deliberate. All becomes clear later on. There's a delightfully nasty dinner scene in the second ep that's a blast and the entire third ep is thrilling from start to finish.

    Absolutely superb. If you're a Christie fan or if just love a good mystery, a must-see.

    You're in for a treat!

    As noted in the New TV Show Thread this is now available on Amazon Prime. Highly recommended.
