The ABC Murders: These are the 13 Yorkshire locations that appear in BBC Poirot drama

Agatha Christie fans were enthralled by last night's opening episode of three-part Hercule Poirot mystery The ABC Murders.

Thanks to a partnership with Screen Yorkshire, the BBC One production was shot mostly in Bradford, Leeds, Wakefield and Ripon, and the shoot was based at Studio 81 on Kirkstall Road. Doncaster is featured in the novel as the scene of one of the grisly railway murders, but as the town's current station is too modern, a preserved heritage railway had to stand in for it.

The Grade I-listed hall, built in 1873, was used as the location for the Scotland Yard police headquarters in London. Churchill famously gave a speech outside City Hall during World War Two.
