This three-part TV adaptation of Agatha Christie's classic mystery is appropriately sinister, mind-bending and fraught with suspense. The ensemble cast is chock full of veteran British actors, including Charles Dance, best known for playing the ruthless Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones. They all seem to be having fun playing the ten guilty people drawn to an isolated island under mysterious (and decidedly murderous) circumstances and it's hard not to enjoy their on-screen chemistry. If you like a good old-fashioned murder mystery laced with black wit and glorious 1930s costumes, this mini-series is well worth your time.
