Too abridged to fully comprehend

Very well performed -- it's the BBC after all -- but because of the half hour time constraint, too many details are lost -- particularly during the trial scene. If you already know the story, this version is ok. Read the original short story or listen to Christopher Lee's reading of it which is much better.

Classic Christie

It’s a classic story of Christie making old time radio work, I enjoyed the adaptation being a fan of the story and the stage play, Miriam Margolyes sells her parts brilliantly and overall a decent listen for a dull car journey
