Aidan Turner rocks once again. ‘And Then There Were None’ is a British drama thriller miniseries broadcasted on BBC One from 26 to 28 December 2015. Turner plays as Philip Lombard, an amoral man very different to Captain Ross Poldark, but his performance is so good as this last one.
In 1939, eight people are invited to an isolated island by a Mr. and Mrs. Owen. All of them are going to be haunted by their past crimes. Philip Lombard is accused of murdering 21 men in East Africa for diamonds. A crime he admits and openly justifies. In fact, he is the only one among this sordid group of assassins who confesses his crime from the very beginning. He is strong and knows the consequences of killing. According to him, life is for resolute people.
Aidan Turner plays smart. His expression is always calm but we feel the horror around us. Nobody can escape of this hell in Devon, England. A great performance!
The three-part program was written by Sarah Phelps and directed by Craig Viveiros. ‘And Then There Were None’ is based on Agatha Christie’s novel of the same name.
Despite criticism ahead of the program’s launch from the Daily Mail that the production diverged from Agatha Christie’s idea, ‘And Then There Were None’ received critical acclaim. And it was a ratings success for the BBC, with the first episode netting over 6 million viewers and the two subsequent episodes netted over 5 million viewers.
