Ordeal by Innocence – Agatha Christie

Opis towaru

A brand new BBC Radio 4 adaptation of Agatha Christie’s novel, known to be a favourite among her own works.

When Doctor Calgary visits the Argyle family, he believes he brings good news. He is there to clear the name of Jacko, who was convicted of the murder of his own mother, Rachel. But the doctor’s news is not greeted with the enthusiasm he expects, and the family seem intent on resisting both his help and the investigations of Inspector Huish.

When a further murder is committed, it becomes apparent that a killer is among the gathered party. With almost everyone having a motive and the means for murder, they must all be on their guard.

Eschewing the traditional detective format, Ordeal by Innocence examines how the innocent suffer more than the guilty when a crime goes unsolved. Along with Crooked House, it was Agatha Christie’s favourite of her own works.

Ordeal By Innocence – Agatha Christie

Opis towaru

Published to tie-in with the new BBC TV adaptation. A man died for a crime he didn’t commit … and the murderer is still among them.

No one felt sorry when Jacko Argyle died in prison. Everyone knew he had bludgeoned his mother to death with a poker from the fire.

But when a doctor turns up at the house two years later with proof of Jacko’s innocence, the whole family is horrified. Because it can mean only one thing – that their mother’s killer is still among them…

Ordeal by Innocence was cited by Agatha Christie in An Autobiography as one of her favourite novels, a detective story which plays on the shock of an innocent man’s conviction and its impact on his family.

Following the success of And Then There Were None and The Witness for the Prosecution, a brand new adaptation by Sarah Phelps for the BBC shines new light on one of Agatha Christie’s darkest and most accomplished whodunits.

The 2018 three-part BBC drama stars Bill Nighy, Anthony Boyle, Anna Chancellor, Morven Christie, Crystal Clarke, Christian Cooke, Alice Eve, Matthew Goode, Ella Purnell, Eleanor Tomlinson and Luke Treadaway.

Ordeal by Innocence – Agatha Christie

Opis towaru

Evidence that clears the name of a boy sentenced for killing his adopted mother arrives too late to save his life – so who did kill her?

Dr. Arthur Calgary takes a ferry across the Rubicon River to Sunny Point, the home of the Argyle family.
A year before, the matriarch of the family was murdered and a son, Jack, was convicted and sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison.

Throughout the trial Jack had maintained his innocence, claiming he was hitchhiking on the night of the murder and he had been picked up by a middle-aged man in a dark car. Unable to locate this mystery man the police viewed Jack’s as a lie. Calgary was the stranger in question, but he arrives to late for Jack – who succumbs to pneumonia after serving just six months of his sentence.

Feeling a sense of duty to the Argyles, Calgary is surprised when his revelation has a disturbing effect on the family – it means one of the family is a murderer…
