Theater veteran Nimra Bucha has been on a roll since working in coveted projects like ‘Ms Marvel’, ‘Churails’ and ‘Polite Society’. Now, Variety reports that the Pakistani actress is set to work in the BBC drama adaption of the popular Agatha Christie novel ‘Murder Is Easy’.

The cast comprises of ‘Lord of the Rings’ lead Morfydd Clark and Downtown Abbey’s Penelope Wilton.

Filming for the adaptation is currently taking place in Scotland, with ‘Industry’ actor David Johnson set to play the lead as Fitzwilliam. Set in 1945 England, Fitzwilliam encounters an old woman, Ms Pinkerton, on the train, who tells him of a murderer on the loose in the quiet village of Wychwood under Ashe. While locals dismiss the murders, Miss Pinkerton remains unsure and seeks help from Scotland Yard, but is found mysteriously dead on her way. After this, Fitzwilliam takes matter in his own hands and investigates who the murderer is.


The two-part series is written by Si├ón Ejiwunmi-Le Berre while Meenu Gaur of Zinda Bhaag and World on Fire, will be directing.
