Rufus Sewell, Kaya Scodelario and Bertie Carvel are among the cast of the BBC’s next big Agatha Christie adaptation.
They will be joined by Sean Pertwee, Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Poppy Gilbert, Madeleine Bowyer, Sarah Woodward, Georgina Campbell, Claire Skinner, Rita Tushingham, Sheila Atim, Kathy Keira Clarke and Ellen Robertson in the adaptation of The Pale Horse.
The Pale Horse follows Mark Easterbrook (Sewell) as he tries to uncover the mystery of a list of names found in the shoe of a dead woman. His investigation leads him to the peculiar village of Much Deeping, and The Pale Horse, the home of a trio of rumoured witches.
Word has it that the witches can do away with wealthy relatives by means of the dark arts, but as the bodies mount up, Mark is certain there has to be a rational explanation.
Filming on the two-part drama, which will probably air at Christmas, is already underway.
