Plot Synopsis

PARTNERS IN CRIME is a six-part series that focuses on Agatha Christie's married couple Tommy and Tuppence, set in a 1950s Britain rising from the ashes of the Blitz into the grip of a new Cold War. This beekeeping duo stumble into a world of murder, undercover agents and cold war conspiracy. Tuppence is a woman who sees adventure round every corner, throwing herself head first into every mystery with passion and fervor, determined to get to the truth no matter what it takes, much to the dismay of her more cautious husband Tommy. The first three episodes are based on the 1922 novel "The Secret Adversary," written by Zinnie Harris, and the last three episodes are adapted by Claire Wilson from the 1941 novel "N or M?" PARTNERS IN CRIME had its U.S. linear television premiere on Saturday, June 13, 2020 from 7-8:30pm ET/4-5:30pm PT on Ovation.
