The two-section dramatization will be author Sarah Phelps' fifth Christie transformation for the BBC

BBC One has decleared the cast for Agatha Christie's The Pale Horse for another variation.

The two-section dramatization will be the BBC's fifth Christie transformation from BAFTA assigned essayist Sarah Phelps.

Rufus Sewell will be played as Mark Easterbrook, who endeavors to disentangle the secret of a rundown of names found in a dead lady's shoe, as the before Skins star Kaya Scodelario will play as Hermia his partner.

Easterbrook's examinations lead him to the secretive town of Much Deeping, which is home to a threesome of supposed witches.

Specialist Foster's Bertie Carvel, Killing Eve's Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Outnumber's Claire Skinner and Call the Midwife's Poppy Gilbert will likewise star close by Sean Pertwee, Ellen Robertson and Madeleine Bowyer.

Rita Tushingham, Sheila Atim and Kathy Kiera Clarke will play the threesome of alleged witches.

James Pritchard, CEO of Agatha Christie Limited and leader maker, said that the variation "feels like nothing we have done previously."

"This is an altogether different story from most that my distant grandma composed, and Sarah has taken it higher than ever.

"The cast, with any semblance of Rufus Sewell and Bertie Carvel, is standout, and it should be a profoundly engaging dramatization."

BBC Drama's Commissioning Editor Tommy Bulfin added: "We are excited that recording is currently in progress on The Pale Horse for BBC One.

"Sarah's splendid contents and her special interpretation of the acclaimed Agatha Christie stories have indeed pulled in a variety of top and energizing ability."

Phelps has recently adjusted And Then There Were None, Ordeal by Innocence, The ABC Murders and Witness for the Prosecution for the little screen to significant recognition.

The following Christie variation to air on the BBC will be a rendition of Egyptian secret Death Comes as the End, composed by Vanity Fair screenwriter Gwyneth Hughes.

The story, which is one of just four of the secret creator's books that has never recently been adjusted for the screen, is set to air on the BBC not long from now as a three section show.
