Agatha Christie uses the under cover name of Mary Westmacott in the drama. The real Agatha Christie published 6 novels under this name between 1930 and 1956: The Rose and the Yew Tree, the Burden, Absent in the Spring, Giant's Bread, Unfinished Portrait and a Daughter's Daughter. See more »

When I heard the premise, and heard that it wasn't endorsed by Agatha Christie's family, or indeed the estate, I feared the worst, so in truth I watched it with exceedingly low expectations, and is so often the case, I really enjoyed it. I thought the plot, direction, acting, and general vibe were all terrific.
The last time I watched something which tried to explain away Agatha's disappearance it involved The Doctor, Catherine Tate, and a giant wasp, this proposed a slightly more Earthly solution, but was equally as entertaining and witty.
Great acting, I loved Ruth Bradley's interpretation of the great writer, Samantha Spiro and Pippa Haywood were excellent also.
Bravo to those involved, a great Agatha Christie fix, ahead of The ABC Murders.
