Abstract

abstract:

This article explores the 2000 telemovie adaptation of Agatha Christie's classic crime novel The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (1926) to look at ideas of the need (or not) to be faithful to an original text. The authors unpack some of the issues that surround the often controversial notion of the "canon" in detective fiction and present the telemovie as an example of the text's critical difference.
