LONDON, Aug. 15 (UPI) — Filming has begun in Liverpool on “The Witness For the Prosecution,” a two-part drama starring Toby Jones, Andrea Riseborough and Kim Cattrall.

The BBC’s adaptation of Agatha Christie‘s short mystery will also feature David Haig, Billy Howle and Monica Dolan.

Julian Jarrold is directing the project.

“1920s London. A murder, brutal and bloodthirsty, has stained the plush carpets of a handsome London townhouse,” a synopsis said. “The victim is the glamorous and rich Emily French (Kim Cattrall). All the evidence points to Leonard Vole (Billy Howle), a young chancer to whom the heiress left her vast fortune and who ruthlessly took her life. At least, this is the story that Emily’s dedicated housekeeper Janet McIntyre (Monica Dolan) stands by in court. Leonard however, is adamant that his partner, the enigmatic chorus girl Romaine (Andrea Riseborough), can prove his innocence. Tasked with representing Leonard is his solicitor John Mayhew (Toby Jones) and King’s Counsel, Sir Charles Carter KC (David Haig).”
