And Then There Were None is a British drama thriller miniseries that was broadcast on BBC One from 26 to 28 December 2015. The three-part programme was written by Sarah Phelps and is based on Agatha Christie's novel of the same name.
Europe teeters on the brink of war. Ten strangers are invited to Soldier Island, an isolated rock near the Devon coast. Cut off from the mainland, with their generous hosts Mr and Mrs U.N. Owen mysteriously absent, they are each accused of a terrible crime. When one of the party dies suddenly they realise they may be harbouring a murderer among their number.
The ending is a version of the novel's ending rather than the play's ending, with some notable differences possibly due to the media format.

|In August 1939, as war approaches, eight troubled strangers are invited to a house on Soldier Island, an isolated island off the coast of Devon. Each lured by differing inducements, they are met by a butler and his wife, the housekeeper. They learn their hosts, Mr. and Mrs. U.N. Owen, are absent. After the evening meal, all ten learn they are there to be judged for crimes they have committed in the past. By morning, two of the ten are dead and the rest are cut off from civilisation.|

|Two figurines out of a set of ten found on the dining table are missing, arousing suspicion from the other eight that one of them is the murderer. They realise that whoever left the mysterious message intends to make good on their threat, according to the rules of the nursery rhyme "Ten Little Soldiers". After three more deaths, and with three more figurines gone, the survivors band together to search all the rooms and belongings to unmask the killer and save themselves.|

|Five of the original ten are left. Following the death of another, the four left become hysterical, thinking of their fate, drinking and taking drugs. In the night, one escapes the house, leaving the other three to believe he is the killer. Two more figurines disappear. A body is found on the beach. The real truth of their crimes come to the fore as the eighth guest is found dead, and the final two turn on each other|
