Who knew Agatha Christie was among the first Britons to stand on a surfboard?
In this short film, commissioned as part of Torbay Culture Recovery Fund, we explore the English Riviera's most famous author and her passion for swimming. It reveals some of her favourite coves and beaches, and shows Devon's stunning coastline in all its glory.
The cast and crew were blessed by a sun-filled few days' shooting, and enjoyed eating Agatha's buns after filming was complete!
