Tuppence Middleton takes on the role of Iris Carr in Masterpiece’s latest spin on a classic. Mark your calendars for August 18th!
MASTERPIECE MYSTERY! “The Lady Vanishes” Premieres Sunday, August 18, 2013 9:00-10:30 p.m. ET.
Returning home on a train from vacation, beautiful young socialite Iris Carr (Tuppence Middleton – once a guest star on two UK episodes of Bones) is befriended by an Englishwoman she knows only as “Miss Froy.” When Iris falls asleep she awakens to find Miss Froy missing and her fellow passengers denying she ever existed. Is Iris going mad or did the encounter really take place?
MASTERPIECE puts a new spin on this familiar story in The Lady Vanishes, airing Sunday, August 18, 2013 from
9-10:30pm ET. Adapted from Ethel Lina White’s 1936 novel The Wheel Spins—filmed by Alfred Hitchcock as The Lady Vanishes—this new MASTERPIECE/BBC coproduction is set against the tense backdrop of the Balkans of the 1930s and deftly weaves together the stories of a colorful trainload of characters brought to life by a stellar international cast.
There’s great news, if you happen to miss it as it airs and your DVR also doesn’t catch it – The Lady Vanishes will be available to view online at pbs.org/masterpiece beginning the day after broadcast for a limited time.
Also stars Selinda Cadell, Keeley Hawe, Julian Rhind-Tutt, and Tom Hughes.
Directed by Diarmuid Lawrence. Co-produced by the BBC and Masterpiece Films.
