Agatha Christie’s Doctors

Join Raye Green, the author of Agatha Christie’s Doctors, as she investigates the many doctors, nurses and medics in Agatha Christie’s stories. There are around 184 doctors in her novels and they are variously depicted as healers, sleuths, victims, suspects or even murderers. After all, when there is murder, there is death, and when there is death, there has to be a doctor…

Raye Green started her career as PA to a Classics Professor at the University of Bristol. She went on to become a senior lecturer in English, History and Archaeology. In her spare time, she founded the Worle History society and is proud to admit she has read and re-read all of Agatha Christie’s books. She co-edited Agatha Christie, the Legacy fanzine published in March 2020. It sold out.

Getting to the venue

The Spanish Barn is in the grounds of Torre Abbey. This is on Torquay seafront and walkable from most hotels in the area. It is also right next to Torquay Train Station. The nearest car park is Torre Valley - Torbay Council


There is a drop-off point and limited parking within the grounds for disabled visitors. Entry to the Spanish Barn is relatively level, but there are a few cobble stones to cross, before entering the completely flat interior. We have space for wheelchairs, although if you let us know in advance, we can ensure that there is ample dedicated space for the number of wheelchair users. We have also raised the height of the main stage this year, so that guest speakers can easily be seen. We also have two TV screens midway down the barn screening what is happening on the stage. We also have a disabled toilet available to the rear of the Spanish Barn.

If you have any particular access requirements or enquiries, do please get in touch and we will do whatever we feasibly can to accommodate you. Please email
