About the Author

Dr Mark Aldridge is a senior lecturer in Film and Television at Southampton Solent University, UK, specialising in film and television history. Previous publications include The Birth of British Television, also published by Palgrave Macmillan. He has been a fan of Agatha Christie since he first saw Agatha Christie's Poirot when he was seven.


"It is extremely well written and very accessible to readers, both academic and general. ... This book is special for two reasons. First, it is an excellent example of how to balance scholarship with accessibility for both academic and general readers. Aldridge's book is thoroughly enjoyable to read and comprehensive in its analysis. Secondly, Aldridge focuses on both film and television adaptations, proving successfully that one can analyse both media effectively in the same context." (Llewella Chapman, Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television, Vol. 38 (1), 2018)

"This has been a book I have been dipping into over the past few months and for anyone who is interested in film and TV adaptations of Agatha Christie's work then this is certainly the book to buy. It covers adaptations as early as 1928 and as late as the BBC's And Then There Were None adaptation in 2015 and it even has two chapters devoted to non-UK and USA adaptations. ... So overall I would recommend this book." (crossexaminingcrime,, March, 2017)
