Eight strangers are invited to a lonely mansion on a remote island, off the coast of Devon, where they are tended by two newly hired servants. When the guests sit down to dinner, they notice the centrepiece, ten figurines of Indians. They listen to a gramophone record, through which a man’s voice accuses them all of murder, one by one. They cannot leave the island, as the boat will not return until Monday, and it is only Friday. One by one, they begin to die and one by one, the Indian statues are broken or go missing. Adapted from one of Agatha Christie’s best-selling novels, And Then There Were None is the critically acclaimed original screen adaptation of the quintessential whodunnit.
