"the village of Wychwood is going to be brought to life by a dream cast."
Nimra Bucha is set to appear in BBC and Britbox International’s latest Agatha Christie adaptation, Murder is Easy.
She will be playing the role of Mrs Humbleby.
Nimra will star alongside David Jonsson, who will play the lead role of Fitzwilliam, Morfydd Clark and Penelope Wilton.
Filming is already underway in Scotland.
Set on a train in 1954 England, Fitzwilliam meets Miss Pinkerton (Penelope Wilton), who tells him a killer is on the loose in the sleepy village of Wychwood under Ashe.
Despite the locals believing that the deaths are accidents, Miss Pinkerton is certain that is not the case.
Unfortunately, she is soon found dead on her way to Scotland Yard.
Fitzwilliams then embarks on a mission to unravel the truth before the killer strikes again.
The latest thriller will be broadcast in two parts. The supporting cast consists of Sinead Matthews, Tom Riley and Douglas Henshall.
Sian Ejiwunmi-Le Berre has written the screenplay while the series has been directed by Meenu Gaur.
James Gandhi, executive producer for Mammoth Screen, spoke about the Agatha Christie adaptation and promised it would be a huge hit with viewers.
He said: “Sian Ejiwunmi-Le Berre’s amazing adaptation of Murder is Easy digs into the divides at the heart of post-war English society and we feel so lucky that the village of Wychwood is going to be brought to life by a dream cast.
“With Meenu Gaur at the directing helm and David Jonsson playing the lead, this promises to be a thrilling ride!”
Reemah Sakaan, BritBox International CEO, said:
“With the combination of such a stellar cast, and source material that’s second to none, Murder is Easy is set to be a huge draw for our international markets and a great addition to BritBox’s collection of much-loved Christie classics.”
James Prichard, executive producer for Agatha Christie Limited, added:
“Once again my great-grandmother’s stories have attracted some amazing talent.
“It is so exciting to see this group of actors embark on the re-telling of this great story.
“The concept of evil lurking in the quintessentially English village is a familiar trope, but what exactly it is that makes murder easy remains to be revealed.”
Director of BBC Drama, Lindsay Salt applauded the camera team and stated that they were a fantastic and creative team.
“BBC viewers are in for a treat that will keep them guessing to the very end.”
BBC has the show in the UK and commissioner BritBox International takes rights in the US, Canada and South Africa.
