AGATHA AND THE CURSE OF ISHTAR is a British mystery drama in which writer Agatha Christie visits an archeological dig in Iraq and finds herself in the midst of a murder investigation.

Sex

There are comic sequences of off-screen sexual moaning and innuendo. In another comic scene a man explains a creation story in which a god “came”, producing a “river of semen”.

Injury detail

There are brief images of dead bodies, as well as a mildly bloodied severed hand, in the aftermath of off-screen murders. A dead pet monkey is found hanging from a noose.

Language

There is infrequent use of strong language (‘f**k’). Milder terms include 'bugger', 'bloody', ‘tits’ and ‘bastard’.

There are discreet, comic verbal references to an encounter with a flasher. There is also a brief scene of suicide, though the actual death occurs off screen.
