The BBC has released the first-look images of Murder is Easy, the latest Agatha Christie adaptation, showing us some of its cast in costume.

The two-parter focuses on a duo who turn up in the quaint village of Wychwood under Ashe, where a number of people have died. The villagers state that it's just a series of accidents, but since it's an Agatha Christie joint, there's obviously a killer on the loose that needs to be unmasked.

The images from Murder is Easy feature some of the cast, including Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power star Morfydd Clark, Downton Abbey's Penelope Wilton, Rye Lane's David Jonsson, Ghosts' Mathew Baynton, and Line of Duty's Mark Bonnar.

The cast also features Jon Pointing (Big Boys, Plebs), Tamzin Outhwaite (EastEnders), Sinead Matthews (The Crown), Tom Riley (The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window), and Nimra Bucha (Ms Marvel), among others.

Agatha Christie Ltd executive producer James Prichard said in a statement: "Once again my great grandmother's stories have attracted some amazing talent. It is so exciting to see this group of actors embark on the re-telling of this great story.

"The concept of evil lurking in the quintessentially English village is a familiar trope, but what exactly it is that makes murder easy remains to be revealed."
