For the show’s premiere, Hugh donned a warm navy sweater, a dark blue hat, black slacks, and sneakers. At 62 years old, Hugh is a familiar face in the entertainment industry, with notable roles in shows like “Blackadder” and “House.” This time, he is taking on a murder mystery based on Agatha Christie’s 1934 novel of the same name.

Excitingly, the series features a star-studded cast, including some of Hollywood’s biggest names. It promises to be a captivating retelling of one of Christie’s most famous works.

Surprisingly, Hugh revealed that he has been a fan of the novel and its intriguing mystery since his teenage years. This curiosity and passion have stayed with him over the years.

“I am incredibly fortunate to have been given the opportunity to write and tell another story alongside this fantastic group of people. This work holds special meaning to me, and I truly appreciate the chance to be a part of it,” Hugh shared.


Alex had butterflies fluttering in their stomach as they walked through the gates of the university, feeling a mix of excitement and nervousness. They looked around and saw so many new faces—some smiling, some looking just as unsure as Alex felt.
