BritBox has announced the streaming date for the 2 part Agatha Christie adaptation of Murder Is Easy, and according to Collider and IGN, Tom Riley fans outside the UK can catch up with his Lord Whitfield on Friday 1st March 2024.

The original story, first published in 1939, revolves around the premise of seemingly straightforward murders that occur within a small community. The story begins when a retired police officer, Luke Fitzwilliam, meets an elderly lady on a train who claims that a series of recent deaths in her village, though appearing as accidents, are actually murders committed by the same person. Intrigued and somewhat skeptical, Fitzwilliam decides to investigate these claims upon reaching the village. As he delves deeper, he discovers that the charming facade of village life hides a more sinister reality. The novel weaves a complex web of clues, red herrings, and suspects.

The limited series brings the classic story up to the 1950s, as well as introducing a Nigerian lead character, while tackling issues true to our times including the likes of colonialism and immigration. The show's creative team includes Sian Ejiwunmi-Le Berre (Writer), Meena Gaur (Director) and David Mackie (Cinematographer), while it is executive produced by Sian Martin, James Gandhi and Damien Timmer.

Dark Heart is also available to watch on BritBox, as well as the original Tom Riley favourite Lost In Austen.
