The BBC has unveiled the new trailer for its adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Ordeal By Innocence, complete with Bill Nighy, Poldark star Eleanor Tomlinson, Downton Abbey’s Matthew Goode, Luke Treadaway and Catherine Keener. However, actor Ed Westwick doesn’t appear.
Set in Christmas in 1954, Ordeal by Innocence follows the mysterious murder of wealthy philanthropist Rachel Argyle (played by Anna Chancellor). Her adoptive son Jacko is jailed for murder, but he later is provided an alibi, which leads the remaining members of the family to suspect each other.
