The new BBC One series ‘The Witness For The Prosecution‘ has just had a trailer released. The two-part series is an adaptation of the classic Agatha Christie crime drama, and was directed by Julian Jarrold.
‘The Witness For The Prosecution‘ takes place in London in the 1920s, and centers around the brutal murder of the wealthy Emily French, an heiress whose body is found stabbed to death in her townhouse.
Evidence points to Leonard Vole, a young man that inherited French’s estate when she died. Leonard, however, says his wife, a chorus girl called Romaine, can prove that he is innocent.
The BBC One adaptation of ‘The Witness For The Prosecution‘ stars Toby Jones, Andrea Riseborough, Kim Cattrall, David Haig, Billy Howle, and Monica Dolan.
It is a thoroughly modern-day version of the Agatha Christie original in that it includes swearing, a rape scene and is more gritty than the original. From the short trailer alone, however, it looks like this is definitely one to watch.
‘The Witness For The Prosection‘ will air on Boxing Day, December 26th at 9pm, with the second and final part the following night at the same time. Watch the trailer below.
