Anthony Horowitz’s best-selling murder mystery Magpie Murders is being turned into a six-part series by BritBox, starring Tim McMullan, Lesley Manville and Daniel Mays, with further casting to be announced. Timothy Spall had been signed on to the project but pulled out of Magpie Murders earlier this year before filming for personal reasons.

The author Anthony Horowitz has even adapted his Magpie Murders novel for the small screen, while The Full Monty and The A Word director Peter Cattaneo takes the helm, as filming gets underway in Ireland and Suffolk. Here’s what we know so far about the twisty-turny crime thriller, which will be on BritBox in the UK and PBS Masterpiece in the US.
