TV Sketching: Agatha Christie’s Criminal Games

In this instalment of tv sketching, I’ve discovered Les Petits Meurtres d’Agatha Christie (Wikipedia; AgathaChristie.com), aka Agatha Christie’s Criminal Games / Little Murders. Only one season (one from the 1950s-set series — the season numbering is convoluted) is currently available here on SBS On Demand, and only for a few more days.

The usual TV sketching rule applies — no pausing.

In terms of its heightened reality / little world / stagey fun, it’s on par with Queens of Mystery, Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries, and Shakespeare & Hathaway.

With melodramatic poses and distinct costuming choices, this makes it a lot of fun to sketch.

It’s particularly fond of warm reds and mint greens.
