struggling to make ends meet: America’s financial chokehold of Britain has cut off royalties and the tax authorities in the US and UK are investigating her. Killing her most popular character in the midst of this turmoil seems almost spiteful. But Agatha, pragmatic and resourceful as ever, has a plan: she is selling the novel of Poirot’s death to a private buyer, a superfan who will pay a fortune to own a piece of history and keep the beloved detective alive. Fourteen years ago, Agatha met Travis Pickford (Blake Harrison), a charming grifter who transformed himself from murder suspect to ally. Who better to help broker a dubious deal than a man for whom skirting the law is career necessity? Having agreed a commission with Agatha, Travis arranges a late night exchange at an infamous London hotel.

In the movie directed by Joe Stephenson, Alistair Petrie will star as Sir Malcolm Campbell, Blake Harrison as Travis Pickford, Daniel Caltagirone

    1. This is, of course, an invented story about her :)

  2. I guess the film is as interesting as the story in the novel.

    Sometimes there are films whose work is not as good as the story of the book.

    1. Probably not, I imagine it will end up on Britbox, but maybe also on PBS.

  5. It should be on all channels as it's Public Access Station. Available to all, even those who don't have cable.

    1. As far as I got it, Jax does not have cable nor regular TV antenna :) just Netflix. So no NBC, ABC, CBS for her either...

  6. You don't have to have anything but a television set to get PBS here. We get like 5 channels for free and PBS is one of them. I couldn't tell her what station it is in New York though. She'd just have to flip through to find it.

    1. Such fun, most of our state frequency networks are garbage that serves our Pussylips dictator in his agenda and propaganda.
