BBC One has begun filming its adaptation of Agatha Christie's murder mystery The Witness for the Prosecution
Bringing together the creative team behind the broadcaster's recent retelling of Christie's And Then There Were None, the new two-part drama will be produced by Mammoth Screen and written by Sarah Phelps.
Starring Toby Jones as solicitor John Mayhew, the plot follows the court case of Leonard Vole, heir to a large fortune, who is charged with killing his benefactor Emily French.
Leonard protests his innocence to the courts in the belief that his partner, chorus dancer Romaine (Bloodline's Andrea Riseborough), can help prove he is not the killer.
Murder victim Emily will be played by Sex and the City actor Kim Cattrall while the role of defendant Leonard will be portrayed by Billy Howle.
A dark portrayal of 1920s London aristocracy, Christie wrote two different endings to her original play. It is not known which one will be included in the latest script.
Filmed in Liverpool, the Beeb hopes to repeat the success of And Then There Were None which was watched by 8 million viewers.
