David Walliams to star in Agatha Christie’s Partners In Crime

To celebrate 125 years since her birth, the BBC are planning a series of dramas to commemorate Britain’s premier detective author, Agatha Christie.  BBC One brings her married couple, Tommy and Tuppence, to life in a brand-new six-part adventure series for the channel. Partners In Crime stars David Walliams (Little Britain, Big School) as Tommy and Jessica Raine (Call The Midwife, Wolf Hall) as Tuppence.

Partners In Crime is an adventure series with espionage and humour at its heart. Set in a 1950s Britain rising from the ashes of the Blitz into the grip of a new Cold War, the beekeeping duo stumble into a world of murder, undercover agents and cold war conspiracy.
