Set in 1950s Britain, Agatha Christie’s Partners in Crime is a 6 part adventure series following married beekeeper couple Tommy (Walliams) and Tuppence (Raine) Beresford as they stumble into a world of murder, undercover agents and Cold War conspiracy.

Much to the dismay of her cautious husband Tuppence seeks adventure around every corner and throws her all into every mystery, determined to catch the perpetrator and uncover the truth.

Tommy and Tuppence are at the heart of Agatha Christie’s novels alongside more recognisable characters like Miss Marple and and Poirot. This new BBC series brings a fresh take on old figures, introducing them to a new generation.

The production filmed at Fort Amherst in Chatham, as well as crossing over the road to The Historic Dockyard to film several London street scenes.

Previously, Fort Amherst has been used in Sherlock Holmes – A Game of Shadows (2011) and The Mission (1986). The Historic Dockyard has played host to a number of productions including Arthur & George (2015), Downton Abbey (2013) and Les Miserables (2013).
