Endless Night by Agatha Christie
Full cast BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of Agatha Christie’s classic, starring Jonathan Forbes and Lizzie Watts.
Agatha Christie wrote Endless Night in 1967, and it is one of her greatest – and most unusual – novels. Creepy, malevolent, and claustrophobic, it is a story about choices, the nature of good and evil, and grim retribution.
Mike Rogers had a childhood fantasy about what life would be like as an adult: he'd have a beautiful wife, they would live in a beautiful home, and this would be a peaceful and deserved reward for a turbulent early life.
When he meets Ellie Gutman at a lovely, remote spot known as Gypsy's Acre, suddenly it is all within his grasp. However, things are not as idyllic as they seem – local legend has it that the land is cursed, and several terrible accidents have occurred there. Mike and Ellie pay no attention to these tales: but when they move into their new home, the curse suddenly seems to come to life and they find themselves in grave danger. . .
Starring Jonathan Forbes and Lizzy Watts, this is a menacing drama that perfectly evokes the atmosphere of Agatha Christie's brooding, malevolent tale, infused with passion, hauntings, and grim retribution.
