The ABC Murders

The adaptation of The ABC Murders by Agatha Christie can easily be watched during one lazy afternoon. Originally broadcast over three consecutive nights on BBC One, the three-episode series is now available for streaming on Amazon Prime.

Although Malkovich garnered much praise for his performance, the literary license taken with the adaptation upset many fans of the original story. We would love to know how Christie Stans would grade this adaptation.
