A rarely seen Agatha Christie classic Series
on 27 July 2004
Adapted from the Tommy And Tuppence stories of the 20's, and 30's, Partners In Crime, first screened in 1983 by London Weekend Television with production filming taking place between June 1982, and March 1983 saw Francesca Annis, and James Warwick play Christie's detectives to wonderful effect. The series starts off with a flyer with, "The Secret Adversary", the last one to be filmed has a lot going for it, particulary Gavan O'Herilly, and one of the final appearances of Welsh actor Donald Houston, who sadly died in 1985. O'Herilly's, Julius Herscheimer is an episode highlight as he uses every action sequence to his advantage, and there are excellent performances from Honor Blackman, Peter Barkworth, George Baker, and Alec McCowen, as well as first-class directing by Tony Wharmby. Other great episodes are : "Affair of The Pink Pearl", "Unbreakable Alibi", "Clergymans's daughter", "The Crackler", and, "House Of Lurking Death".
