Behind the scenes of The Pale Horse

Director Leonora Lonsdale takes Drama Quarterly behind the scenes of ‘The Pale Horse’, the fifth Agatha Christie adaptation from the BBC and writer Sarah Phelps.

“I had 24 hours to read the script and do my pitch in front of executive producers Damien Timmer and Helen Ziegler, and Addo Yoshizaki Cassuto, the producer,” she recalls. “I didn’t sleep much, but I prepared this big visual document. I really connected with the material, so luckily I didn’t think too much about it. I had interviews with Mammoth, the BBC and Agatha Christie Limited and it went from there.”

“Certainly we weren’t afraid of this being a piece that could let go, be quite experimental and be quite dark.”
