Three more famous faces from stage and screen have become Agatha Christie’s latest guests on the UK tour of And Then There Were None - which comes to Peterborough’s Broadway Theatre next month.

The current run marks the 10th anniversary of The Agatha Christie Theatre Company and the 125th anniversary of the author’s birth.

Neil Stacy, Deborah Grant and Mark Wynter have joined this production of the Queen of Crime’s most popular and best-selling thriller, which opens in the city on November 23.

Neil Stacy, who is best known for his role as Robert Cochran in the Eighties ITV sitcom Duty Free, will play judge Sir Lawrence Wargrave and will be joined by Bergerac and Peak Practice’s Deborah Grant, who will star as eccentric spinster Emily Brent. Sixties pop star-turned actor Mark Wynter will star as Dr. Armstrong while Kezie Burrows, best known as junior doctor Cath Llewellyn in the 2009 BBC drama series Crash, joins the cast as secretary Vera Claythorne.

They join Colin Buchanan, who starred as Peter Pascoe in Dalziel and Pascoe, as retired police inspector William Henry Blore, former Blue Peter presenter and actor Mark Curry as Rogers, Soldier Soldier’s Ben Nealon as Philip Lombard and Bouquet of Barbed Wire’s Eric Carte as General Mackenzie.

A group of 10 strangers is lured to a remote island off the coast of Devon. Upon arrival it is discovered that their host, an eccentric millionaire, is missing. At dinner a recorded message is played accusing each of them in turn of having a guilty secret and by the end of the evening the 10 guests become nine. Stranded on the island by a torrential storm and haunted by an ancient nursery rhyme, one by one the guests begin to die. And with only the fallen believed to be innocent who amongst them is the killer?
