  • ... it was not just astoundingly addictive as a whodunit, but was also rich in psychological complexity, which has to be a Christie first.

  • In its character, depth and startling bitterness, this adaptation of Agatha Christie's classic short story bears small resemblance to its best-known film version.

  • Perfectly crafted, expertly cast and beautifully scripted by Sarah Phelps, who gave us her brilliant adaptation of And Then There Were None last year, it was simply all you could want from your Boxing Day treat.

  • Jones takes another step in his slow evolution from supporting player to star, but there is excellent work all around.

    February 1, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Let's just say that Agatha Christie's The Witness for the Prosecution isn't like anything you'd expect as it adds a layer of psychological hopelessness to the whodunit -- nor is it anything you should miss.
