BritBox reveals first-look images for Magpie Murders adaptation

BritBox has revealed a selection of initial images from the upcoming adaptation of Anthony Horowitz’s acclaimed and best-selling novel Magpie Murders, which wrapped production in London, Suffolk and Ireland last month.

The plot to Magpie Murders revolves around the character Susan Ryeland, played by Lesley Manville, an editor who is given an unfinished manuscript by best-selling mystery writer Alan Conway (Conleth Hill), featuring Conway’s detective Atticus Pünd (Timothy McMullan), and has little idea it will change her life.

Further cast members include Daniel Mays (Line of Duty, Des), Alexandros Logothetis (42°C, The Island), Claire Rushbrook (Whitechapel, My Mad Fat Diary), Matthew Beard (Dracula, And When Did You Last See Your Father?), Pippa Haywood (Bodyguard, Green Wing, Bridgerton) and Michael Maloney (The Crown, The Trial Of Christine Keeler). It’s directed by Peter Cattaneo (The Full Monty, Military Wives, The A Word) and distributed internationally by Sony Pictures Television.

The image above shows (L-R) Matthew Beard as James Fraser, Tim McMullan as Atticus Pünd, director Peter Cattaneo and Lesley Manville as Susan Ryeland.
