Tommy and Tuppence

Did you watch the new BBC One series Partners In Crime, starring Jessica Raine and David Walliams as Agatha Christie's Tommy and Tuppence in The Secret Adversary, Part One? The opening scene in Paris was ruined by the anonymous director having Tuppence lug a pile of empty suitcases to the train. She would never have been able to lift them had they been full. The unfunny joke was that Tommy carried a small package containing a queen bee, from which he hoped to make a fortune. David Walliams was a dead loss, both as Tuppence's husband and as an actor. It was left to Jessica Raine to salvage the show, which she did most successfully (CLICK).
