Irons more than holds his own at the center of this swirling mystery, and Martini proves an enchanting leading lady, but the real draws are Close and Anderson, who bring a ferocious zest to their over-the-top characters.

A visual treat but a less-than-tantalizing mystery.

Crooked House feels as lifeless as the corpse at its center.

The superb cast provides mild pleasures, as do some aspects of the elaborate mystery itself.

Crooked House knows what its job is: to set up a tangled web of colorful characters, throw in a few red herrings, set off its dynamite, and make its exit while the smoke is still in the air.

"Crooked House" keeps you guessing, right up to its shocking conclusion (of which Christie was especially proud, naming it a personal favorite among her extensive oeuvre).

It's certainly a deliciously dark tale, but it never really gives into its sordid, over-the-top tendencies until it's too late.

Even so, after a while you can't help noticing that, rather unusually for a Christie adaptation, not a great deal is happening plot-wise, with the programme not so much gripping us as drifting pleasantly by.

An unpretentious Agatha Christie-penned murder mystery every bit as good as last year's all-star hit Murder on the Orient Express.

This over the top adaptation is not realistic, but it is great fun. With the detective and his thwarted love trying to maintain sanity in a whirling vortex of family dysfunction, the viewer is along for a ride that ends shockingly and abruptly.
