The Witness for the Prosecution is a 2016 British mystery drama thriller television serial broadcast on BBC One over Christmas 2016. The two-part programme was adapted by Sarah Phelps and directed by Julian Jarrold and is based on Agatha Christie’s short story of the same name. The expanded plot is based on Christie’s original short story with the original ending, which is different than that of previous stage, film and television versions, including Billy Wilder’s 1957 film version.

When Leonard Vole is accused of murdering society lady Emily French, his solicitor Mayhew clings to the hope that Leonard’s wife Romaine will provide the alibi that can save his life. Romaine, whose testimony was Leonard’s one hope to save him from the gallows, has turned on him, leaving Mayhew’s case hopeless and Leonard’s fatal verdict imminent.
