Episode One
1939. As civilization teeters on the brink of war, ten strangers are persuaded to retreat from their troubled lives to Soldier Island, an isolated rock off the Devon coast.

A reckless playboy, a decrepit judge, a nervous businessman, an unhinged Harley Street doctor, a god-fearing spinster, a secretive governess, a guilt-ridden general, a remorseless mercenary and two anxious servants find themselves cut off from the mainland by appalling weather. Their hosts Mr and Mrs U.N. Owen mysteriously absent, the guests are each accused of a unique and terrible crime by a gramophone recording, timed perfectly to deliver its indictments after dinner.

As the assembled guests begin to realise that not one of them has set eyes on the missing Owens, the true reason for their presence on the island becomes horribly clear: they are to be executed, one by one.

But where is the killer hiding? Could it be true that the group harbours a murderer among their number?







Episode Two:

As the sun rises and sets on the island and its solitary mansion, the number of guests is whittled down by their invisible enemy to seven, to six, to five… The progress of the killings seem to have everything to do with an ominous nursery rhyme, ‘Ten Little Soldier Boys’ copies of which hang in every room. But the guests’ every attempt to anticipate and outwit the murderer is foiled, and any trust they might have had in one another swiftly crumbles. Accusations fly; minds unravel; alliances are forged; deals are struck. But as the possibilities for their survival shrink, the guests’ mutual suspicion gives way to a sense of collective doom. There is no great detective coming along to save their lives and identify the villain they only have each other. As the night draws in once more, each guest must face up to the darkest truths of their pasts for retribution is close at hand.
And Then There Were None
Episode Three
Cut down to half their original number, the guests of Soldier Island are in danger of losing their minds to fear and anxiety. But after yet another murder, nearly all hope of survival evaporated, and further acts of terrible violence all but guaranteed, their sense of doom gives way to the need for a demented bacchanal a last hurrah, rife with sexual tension. Will U.N. Owen whomever he or she is finish them off, confirming the prophecy contained in the nursery rhyme hanging on every wall of the house ‘…and then there were none’? Or can the surviving guests overcome their terror, face up to the darkness of their pasts, and finally escape the island?
