Overview

Agatha Christie’s short fiction comes alive in The Agatha Christie Hour, 10 one-hour productions broadcast on PBS’s Mystery! in the early 1980s. These splendid adaptations feature an outstanding ensemble cast portraying lesser-known Christie protagonists as they grapple with romance, murder and the supernatural in Art Deco England. The Queen of Crime plumbs the recesses of the human heart in tales of mystery and murder, passion and peril, suspense and the supernatural. In these final five of episodes, Christie's protagonists find themselves the victims of false accusations, embroiled in illicit love affairs, torn between duty and desire, and under the thumb of employers with questionable motives. The superb ensemble casts include Rupert Everett, Amanda Redman, Ralph Bates, Stephanie Cole, Cherie Lunghi, and Christopher Cazenove.

The five stories in this second set are: "Magnolia Blossom," about an unhappy wife tries to escape her marriage; "The Mystery of the Blue Jar," in which a young man consults an expert on the paranormal; "The Red Signal." wherein a séance foretells of sudden death and danger; "Jane in Search of a Job," about an Englishwoman who takes on a dangerous assignment; and "The Manhood of Edward Robinson," depicting a henpecked fiancé who sets off on the drive of his life. Thames Television produced The Agatha Christie Hour in 1982.
