A SCOTTISH village is playing a starring role in the BBC’s latest Agatha Christie adaptation.

Tyninghame in East Lothian sets the scene for the new drama Murder Is Easy, which aired on BBC one on Wednesday and is on again on Thursday evening.

The show features David Jonsson as detective Luke Fitzwilliam investigating a string of murders in the fictional village of Wychwood under Ashe.

We previously told how the village had been transformed during filming (below) and people have now finally had the chance to see it on TV after the first episode aired.

A member of the village hall’s committee, Shireen Green, told BBC Scotland’s Drivetime: “The buildings are all attractive and there is not much sign of 21st century development.

“It’s a conservation area so the charming character of the village has been maintained. It’s not a typical Scottish village, so it’s not surprising it was chosen as it does look like a chocolate box English village.

“We were able to go and watch the filming. It was just great fun.”

The village wasn’t the only Scottish location to be used for filming with Sorn Castle in East Ayrshire, the village of Garvald in East Lothian as well as areas of Stirlingshire and Paisley also featuring.

Murder Is Easy also starts Scottish actor Mark Bonnar (below) and Penelope Wilton.

It is one of many successful TV series to have filmed in Scotland, including Outlander, Vigil, Good Omens, The Traitors, Succession and The Rig.

Good Omens, starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen, is to film its third and final season in Scotland in the near future.
