Agatha Christie’s famed sleuthing duo come to the screen in an exciting all-new BBC T V adaptation starring David Walliams and Jessica Raine as Partners in Crime. Set in the leafy suburbs of 1950s London, Partners in Crime finds Tommy and Tuppence Beresford in need of some adventure in their lives. With Tommy undertaking a variety of business opportunities, and Tuppence trying to dissuade him, the couple find themselves in the wrong place at the right time to solve a mystery – or two – and perhaps save someone’s life. They are about to enter a world of espionage and skulduggery guided by Tommy’s mysterious Uncle, Major Carter. It is a world which will prove easier to enter than to leave. This six part drama draws on two classic novels by Agatha Christie: The Secret Adversary and N or M?

M or N episode 3
Really been enjoying this series.
Bit of a spoiler report. I seemed to have been able to download Episode 3 of M or N, this episode is due to be screened next week so I think it is a mistake. Not sure if I should watch it yet though. It might be just too tempting.
We're big fans of Tommy and Tuppence in our house so it was a bit of a family event to view this with my wife, myself and our 13 year old daughter waiting eagerly each Sunday for the latest episode to arrive.
Fair warning to the book fans first: The characters bear only a passing resemblance to those in the books - Tommy, especially in the opening episodes, is almost nothing like his book counterpart, being more of a likeable idiot than anything else. His character, however, develops significantly as the series progresses and towards the end he is much more like the book character. The plots also, of course, have had to be heavily adapted to suit the TV format.
Why 5 stars then? Well, because it's just so enjoyable anyway! The production values are top rate, the basic outlines of the Agatha Christie stories are there, and the two leads are thoroughly enjoyable. If you haven't read the books then you'll enjoy this for what it is in itself; and if you have read the books, well, this is not the Tommy and Tuppence you may love from the books, but if you are put off at first (especially by Tommy, as I was) - stick with it - I bet you love it by about episode 3!
I hope it did well because I am really wanting them to do the other stories next and we'll have this running for a good few series' to come!
