Set in 1939 as Europe teeters on the brink of war, the story follows 10 strangers with dubious pasts who are lured to an isolated manor on Soldier Island. When members of the party start to mysteriously die, the others realize that a murderer is among them, and self-preservation becomes the only option. This thrilling, three-part series features the talents of Aidan Turner (Poldark), Sam Neill (Jurassic Park), Charles Dance (Game of Thrones) and Miranda Richardson (Harry Potter).
Ten strangers are drawn away from their normal lives to an isolated rock off the Devon coast. As the mismatched group wait for the arrival of the hosts, the weather sours and they find themselves cut off from civilization, a murderer in their midst.
The guests on Soldier Island are dying, one by one, according to the rules of the nursery rhyme Ten Little Soldier Boys. As they make plans to combat the killer, the body count continues to rise - and dreadful secrets are teased into the light.
Cut down to half their original number, the surviving guests of Soldier Island are in danger of losing their minds. With the likelihood of survival rapidly diminishing, they must turn to one another for comfort, and for protection. But trust is in short supply.
And Then There Were None Marathon, Friday beginning at 9 p.m. on PBS 6.
