Mystery! is a television anthology series produced by WGBH Boston for PBS in the United States. The series was created as a police and crime drama spin-off to the already established PBS show Masterpiece Theatre. From 1980-2006, Mystery! aired mostly British crime series purchased from or co-produced with the BBC or ITV and adapted from British mystery fiction. In 2002, due to pressure to include more American material, a series based on the novels of US mystery writer Tony Hillerman was produced, but the vast majority of Mystery! programming has always been and continues to be British literary adaptations co-produced with UK-based production companies. In 2008 PBS combined Mystery! with its predecessor Masterpiece Theatre under the umbrella title Masterpiece, which includes the sub-brands Masterpiece Classic, Masterpiece Mystery!, and Masterpiece Contemporary.
He's the most-watched sleuth in the history of PBS's Mystery! David Suchet stars as the dapper, diminutive Belgian who solves the most serpentine cases with the sharpest of minds and the driest of wits. Set in the Art Deco elegance of 1930s England, each mysterious adventure is a treat for the eyes and the intellect.
Proper, demure, sharp as a tack, Agatha Christie’s spinster sleuth is brilliantly portrayed by Geraldine McEwan (Series 1–3) and Julia McKenzie (Series 4). Each dons the trademark tweeds as if they were made for her; each is surrounded by lavish post-WWII period detail and stellar supporting casts.
In 1950’s Cold War Britain, suburban married couple Tommy and Tuppence Beresford are thrust into a world of spies, assassins and double agents. Based on Agatha Christie’s classic characters, Tommy (David Walliams, Little Britain) and Tuppence (Jessica Raine, Call the Midwife) take on the criminal underworld because sometimes a marriage needs an adventure!
