The Agatha Christie Icontest

She was known as "The Queen of Crime" and her books have captured the imaginations of generations of readers. Today, Agatha Christie remains the most popular novelist in history, with over two billion copies of her books sold.

Challenges will focus on episodes from the David Suchet Poirot series, films which have been made (such as Murder on the Orient Express with Albert Finney or Murder in Mesopotamia with Peter Ustinov), Miss Marple, text icon challenges with famous sayings, minor character themes (Inspectors Japp and Slack, Captain Hastings or Ms. Lemon), book covers and Agatha Christie herself.
