In this version, The Spies of Warsaw’s Tuppence Middleton plays Iris Carr, a young socialite who suspects foul play after a woman she befriends on a train journey home disappears and her fellow passengers deny she ever existed. Upstairs Downstairs’ Keeley Hawes, MI-5’s Gemma Jones, Silk’s Tom Hughes and Doc Martin’s Stephanie Cole and Selina Cadell are all part of the all-star cast.

The Lady Vanishes will premiere on PBS stations nationwide in mid-August. Sound interesting? Do you think it can equal the Hitchcock version?
Note: As we get closer to this airdate, make sure you keep an eye on the schedule at your particular local station. As many stations are in a pledge period at this point in time, the actual date this film airs could shift a bit. For WETA viewers, we’ll keep you posted!
