VARIETY – Rufus Sewell will play Mark Easterbrook, a man trying to uncover the mystery of a list of names found on a dead woman, in the BBC’s latest series adaptation of an Agatha Christie novel, “The Pale Horse.” Kaya Scodelario (“Crawl”) will star as Hermia, Easterbrook’s girlfriend, in the two-parter for the BBC in the U.K. and Amazon in the U.S.

The series follows Easterbrook as his investigation into the list of names leads him to a peculiar English village, Much Deeping. It is the home of a trio of rumored witches, played by Rita Tushingham (“Vera”), Sheila Atim (“Girl From the North Country”) and Kathy Kiera Clarke (“Derry Girls”).

“This adaptation feels like nothing we have done before,” said James Prichard, Christie’s great-grandson, who is the series executive producer and CEO of Agatha Christie Limited. “This is a very different story from most that my great-grandmother wrote, and Sarah has taken it to new heights.”
