The IPTV and BBC-owned streaming service BritBox now has the largest collection of Agatha Christie adaptations. The streaming service has secured rights to more seasons of “Poirot,” and newly restored HD versions of “Marple” and “Partners in Crime.” Seasons 9-12 of “Poirot” and the special “Poirot: Mysterious Affair at Styles,” launched May 15 in honor of the 100th anniversary of Christie’s first novel.
“Only BritBox could create this Agatha Christie collection — working together with BBC and ITV to bring together all of these celebrated adaptations,” said BritBox president and CEO Soumya Sriraman. “As the home of Great British mysteries, we couldn’t be more proud to be the true home of the most beloved portrayals of Christie’s famous characters.”
More adaptations of the author’s work are set to hit BritBox as well, including “The Seven Dials Mystery,” “Why Didn’t They Ask Evans?” and “The Secret Adversary,” starring Francesca Annis and James Warwick.
“I am delighted to see all these shows available in the North America on BritBox. They give a real flavor of the depth and quality of my great grandmother’s work, and I am sure audiences will enjoy them,” said James Prichard, CEO and Chairman of Agatha Christie Limited.
