Mixing Marriage and Mystery

Apr 5, 2017

 9pm AGATHA CHRISTIE'S PARTNERS IN CRIME - Crime/Drama - Agatha Christie's crime-fighting duo, Tommy and Tuppence Beresford, solve mysteries and search for enemy spies in 1950s Britain.

Packed with period atmosphere and playful banter, Partners in Crime follows Tommy and Tuppence Beresford as they mix marriage and mystery solving. As proprietors of Blunt’s Detective Agency, the flirtatious and fun-loving couple investigates cases that range from a purloined pearl to the disappearance of an Arctic explorer’s fiancée. 

 David Walliams (Little Britain) and Jessica Raine (Call the Midwife) are the endearing pair whose quiet lives are changed by a chance encounter on a Paris train. He’s more cautious and a bit of a klutz; she’s curious, quick-witted, and daring. In The Secret Adversary, they search for a missing woman and a recording that could unmask a Soviet hit man. In N or M? they must discover which person at a seaside guesthouse has stolen a nuclear bomb. Each is a thrilling adventure laced with humor, international espionage, visual flair, and stylish period details. 


The Beresfords' search for Jane Finn comes to a close as they finally uncover the identity of Mr. Brown.
