Description

A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Agatha Christie’s darkly suspenseful psychological thriller.

‘Some are born to sweet delight/Some are born to endless night’ (William Blake)

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 Lizzie 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.

Excellent adaptation

Chilling adaptation of Dame Agatha Christie's thriller. At times very faithful to the book, with some liberties taken. Subtle and disturbing gothic tale of a young, newlywed couple warned not to move to a land with a gypsy curse upon it, and, when they do, sinister things start happening. Tragic love story, well acted. The actors actually sounded exactly how I pictured from reading the book! The leading man was fantastic. Creepy, sinister sound effects enhanced the performance. Ellie's song was somber and sweet at the same time. But take note: this particular story is more psychological thriller, not a typical murder mystery. Slow moving and methodical, but the kind of dark story that gets under your skin. Would recommend reading the book first, it will increase your enjoyment and understanding of the radio play.

Great Listen

This story really was amazing. I never caught on to who the murder was and the further into the story it got the more I enjoyed it and felt the intensity to it. Great performance and wonderful book.

Depressing

A dark story. Too sad. Mental illness involved. You can see the tragedy coming and it is too grim.
