This is a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Agatha Christie's darkly suspenseful psychological thriller. 'Some are born to sweet delight/Some are born to endless night' - William Blake.
Agatha Christie wrote "Endless Night" in 1967, and it is one of her greatest - and most unusual - novels.
Creepy, malevolent and claustrophobic, it is a story about choices, the nature of good and evil, and grim retribution.
Mike Rogers had a childhood fantasy about what life would be like as an adult; he'd have a beautiful wife, they would live in a beautiful home, and this would be a peaceful and deserved reward for a turbulent early life.When he meets Ellie Gutman at a lovely, remote spot known as Gypsy's Acre, suddenly it is all within his grasp.
However, things are not as idyllic as they seem - local legend has it that the land is cursed, and several terrible accidents have occurred there.
Mike and Ellie pay no attention to these tales: but when they move into their new home, the curse suddenly seems to come to life and they find themselves in grave danger...Starring Jonathan Forbes and Lizzie Watts, this is a menacing drama that perfectly evokes the atmosphere of Agatha Christie's brooding, malevolent tale, infused with passion, hauntings and grim retribution.
