Rewriting

I love mysteries. And the queen of mysteries is Agatha Christie.

Naturally, when one of Dame Christie’s mysteries are remade I’ll watch it. Such was the case this last weekend with the amazon prime series Ordeal by Innocence.

I had seen the story remade a few times, so I went in thinking I already knew the guilty party.

Except I didn’t.

The screenplay had been rewritten and a new villain selected. And the story remade.

I have to say I didn’t really appreciate the rewriting of the Doctor’s role (the alibi), but I understand why they did what they did as his mental health issues did play a part in the conflict.

There were the traditionally despicable characters and the sympathetic ones.

And the mystery was solid and in keeping with Christie’s style.

But I must say, the thing I liked best was the ending and the justice delivered. Sometimes, creative license with a writer’s work delivers a great new experience.

Until next time.
